Sooo, wouldn't it be easier to take the previous census, subtract the dead and emigrants and add births and immigrants?? I guess that the census only counts legal residents, so immigrants that enter the country illegally aren't counted. I'm spanish, idk if there's any problem with that system, I dont even know how it is done in Spain

Some countries, like mine, have these things called computers. They compute really well, so we have realtime 'census'. Maybe on some day those things will reach your country as well.

So how did they manage to do it for the apartments? Like in New York. Nock on each doors in a 30floor building with 5 flats flat by flat street by street? That’s very labour intensive

The U. S. Census bureau is still hiring as of 6/8/20, Great pay, fun, easy, make your own hours. Very lucrative, I have paid off car, a credit card ($750), Insurance ($1000+), new tires, some toys, in 2 1/2 months. It is temporary, and part time, doesn't effect most subsidies , HOWEVER CHECK with the provider to be sure, mention Temporary, Part Time.
