I had an interesting experience yesterday. I got a phone call from the 2010 Census following up on the census form that our household submitted.
You see, we had overnight houseguests on April 1st. Question 2 asked if "there were any additional people staying here April 1, 2010 that you did not include in Question 1?" So I marked the box that said relatives. Seems the Census Bureau wanted to know more about that. I think they were partly verifying I had understood the questions when I filled out the form. However, they wanted the name, sex, age and all of the other information the census form asked of people living in our house.
So I guess the information will be there when it's released in 72 years. Maybe our descendants will wonder why the cousins spent the night with us on April 1, 2010. Ha - probably not but just in case, I've made a note on my copy of our census form. They were on their way to hike the Grand Canyon. I've included a picture too just for fun.
