We received our 2010 census data capture form in the mail today.  I just finished completing the form and it is ready to go back in the mail.  It was easy to do.  The one quirk in it was that the form kept asking how many people lived in the house on April 1, 2010. Since we have not yet reached April 1, 2010, I pretended it was asking for today.  April 1, as most people know, is also April Fools day in the U.S.  I think that makes the form even more confusing.  I wonder how many people will think it is a joke?
