its funny how when you disagree with something, the numbers are always wrong. how about backing up your claim with some facts?

Just because I'm crazy doesn't mean I'm wrong.

Hilarious. What's even funnier is their contributions were more worthwhile than a good number of posts at ES

Just click on the link Saden provided. He was saying that the 85 million was saved from the results of the mailing and the 85 million was save from all the advertising done. His post was good and I understand what his point was but he just used the numbers wrong.

Re: More Waisted Tax Money 2010 Census

The mailing is likely included in the advertising figure, either way at this point we're talking semantics

What I was saying is for every 1% increase in form returns 85 million dollars is saved. This information is available in the links I provided. The census people claim that sending out the notification letters increase the rate of return by 6% to 12%. I tend to believe them. Furthermore, we could save a hell of a lot more than 85 million.

Saden you are correct and I now see how you came up with those numbers based on what the Census people say. I don't believe they get a 6 to 12% jump in return for that mailing.

Is the goverment really that stupid that they think its smart to pre-mail every house hold to let them know their census is coming? What a waist of tax dollars from a goverment that is out of money. They just don't get the problem and never will. Now that I think about it maybe its a stimulas for the Post Office sense they are going broke.
Waste of tax payer dollars!! Let me count the ways.
