Interesting. Thanks for the link and your input :) You sound like you aren't bothered at all by Uncle Sam wanting to look at your buying habits and a closer look into how you live. Are you public sector or do you work for a government agency? I'm not trying to come off nosey, just trying to understand your willingness to divulge so much personal information and devote so much time to an agency. Most people here on GLP are against government information digging/procuring/surveying/etc. It's kind of viewed as an invasion of privacy.

To me it seems if they want to survey CPI they can just look to the stores for the answers. What are people buying, what are they charging, etc. The economy is in the pooper, I don't think they need my financial information and spending habits to help determine that. I actually still contribute to the economy and spend more freely than most these days. I would probably be the black sheep in the survey, LOL.

Another group of Economic Assistants from BLS collect the CPI data. They physically go into the stores and record the prices of goods and services every month. The Consumer Expenditure Survey collect the spending habits of consumers based on demographics, income etc.

You would think though that they could get this some other way. I know the government has access to our spending. I just don't want to know about it!

- Construction of statistical measures of consumption.
- Analysis of expenditure patterns by characteristics.
- Market research studies.
- Economic research.
- Consumer guidance materials

Ok friend, just put it out there. Have you collected these surveys before?

Been reading the rest of the thread since my last post. Sorry to hear you're having back problems. Safe surgery and a fast recovery to you. I hope it brings you relief.

Any type of joint problem is just awful, but I think the back is the worst. So hard to do anything without affecting your back in some way.

Aw, thank you my friend for reading the rest of the thread and your well wishes! Not many people will read this many pages! Sometimes there is exciting info hidden in there that you would know otherwise though so I always try to read through threads in their entirety.

Yeah, unfortunately you don't realize just how important your back is until it's hurt. It sucks but it's part of my life right now and i'm more of a glass half full type gal than a glass half empty. Some days I may ride the fence on that but I think we all do :)

Thank you again for your well wishes and healing thoughts! hf

Hmmm....

So they want to poke their noses into the lives of the "small people" again, eh?

It's about time we turn the tables. Perhaps anybody who receives one of these pain in the ass letter should send it back, along with a note....something to the effect of this:

"Dear Census Bureau,

It is with a minimal level of regret and sorrow that I must inform you that I can not participate in this program as requested. As a regular person with a modest income, I think very carefully and carefully plan in order to stretch every dollar I spend as far as I can.

However, I think it would be a *great* idea for the federal government to start keeping a daily log of spending that would account for each and every spent. No program or funds shall be exempt. It will help the people understand how our money is spent, and will enable us to submit ideas and allow you to finally be accountable to the people for the wasteful spending of our money.
The records of such a program will be published each day for the previous days spending.

Failure to do so will result in a daily fine of $2,500 per worker-bee household in this country.

We thank you in advance for your time and cooperation with this new program.

Regards,

The population of the United States of American"

I think everyone who has contributed here tonight has been AWESOME! I have loved so many of the posts here tonight and Nine, your letter was superb too! I really like them both and think combining them would just ROCK!

No one should sell themselves short because you all are bright shining stars here and have each made a positive contribution to this thread! So I thank each of you and will bless as many as possible with some karma tonight :) Those I can't get tonight i'll get tomorrow and then again in a week <3

Karma hugs for everyone! BUT, until I get reloaded you will have to take a virtual karma hug. LOL

You are so sweet. You are a shining star! Tried to give you karma too, but can't yet. Will be watching for your post before surgery. hf

Thank you my friend! I sent you a friend request <3 I think you also are a shining star here. So many people come here and point fingers, leave negative comments and only want to belittle others instead of nurturing kindness. Thank you for your contributions here tonight...and for your kindness. You have a good heart, something that is rare in this place <3

Re: UPDATE 10/20 Census Bureau Just Left My House!! Letter from CENSUS Bureau; Wanting Me to Keep A Daily Journal of My Spending!!
Nah, Nine's. Me and any work I put forth is no better than that of any other person.

A fact is a fact.

Regards to you all, and may you and your respective families all be well.

Been reading the rest of the thread since my last post. Sorry to hear you're having back problems. Safe surgery and a fast recovery to you. I hope it brings you relief.

Any type of joint problem is just awful, but I think the back is the worst. So hard to do anything without affecting your back in some way.

Aw, thank you my friend for reading the rest of the thread and your well wishes! Not many people will read this many pages! Sometimes there is exciting info hidden in there that you would know otherwise though so I always try to read through threads in their entirety.

Yeah, unfortunately you don't realize just how important your back is until it's hurt. It sucks but it's part of my life right now and i'm more of a glass half full type gal than a glass half empty. Some days I may ride the fence on that but I think we all do :)

Thank you again for your well wishes and healing thoughts! hf

I'm a big ol' klutz with weak collagen, so I know what it's like to have pain. It's usually shoulders and hips slipping out of socket with me though. Thankfully I can usually pop joints back into place either on my own or with a little help from Hubby. we'd be in the poor house if I had to go to the ER each time.

I read through the threads as well unless it's one of those that breaks down into sniping and name calling. Plus, it gives me something quiet to do here near midnight, unable to sleep, and working out a hand cramp after working on a shawl most of the evening.

I did not read through all the posts but we had this happen as well. They did send someone to our house, not once, not twice but over 25 times the person came to our home, knocked on our door and left information. I finally spoke to her and told her we are in no way interested, i left the same message on her phone after her second visit. Even after speaking to her in person she still came back. We had to call and complain to her supervisor, twice. Then her supervisor came to our door. At this point i told him the next person who trespassed would have to police called. They havent been back since, i have front and back surveillance cams.

They offered me and my wife to take an extend survey which was insane personal, drug, alcohol usage. It paid 30 dollars but it would not have mattered if it was 10,000 dollars. By the way, i could barely understand a word this "American" woman spoke..
