Subject: Census Related Question

> Hello list,
>
> I noticed the thread on the Census and wondered if anyone knew when the
Census stopped doing a door to door survey and started to do random
sampling - if that was the case. I was alive for the 1970,80,90, and 2000
Census and know for a fact that my family was not listed. We lived in a
major metropolitan city so it was very easy to find us. As there is no
census record of my living during that time period, I am sure that future
family historians will encounter frustration attempting to locate myself and
my family.

was this the norm. I too am having problems locating family members in
census despite spelling variations and just wondered when census became less
inclusive than the earlier ones.
