Census workers hit the streets in the Central District

You may be getting a friendly knock on the door soon.

Just weeks after the deadline passed to mail in 2010 Census forms to the government, workers have arrived in the CD to touch base with those who haven’t done it.  On our afternoon walk today, we briefly chatted with a group of women near 28th and Jefferson — with nifty Census  bags and armfuls of forms — who were beginning their first day of making door knocks.

They said it was a “training period,” but any information they gather is recorded and turned in.  If you didn’t fill out your Census form, you can expect a visit.  Every 10 years, according to our country’s constitution, Census takers must account for every person living in the U.S.
