"...there's a government employee for every 13.5 people in the country"
Amazing! Can some one tell me what justifies that many?
And then also tell me why the Census must hire 1.2 million ADDITIONAL government employees - to count an estimated 310 million people? Approximately 1 census worker to count each 258 people! Over the course of many months! Do they each count a couple a day and then go home?

Not even close.
They census "workers" only go out to the places where the forms are not mailed in.
In reality, what percentage will that be, 10-15%.
So these "workers" will have to contact 25-30 families over the course of six months, about one a week.
What a backbreaking job that has to be.

The answer is the census work is done by a large number of part time workers. They do not put in in 8 hour days for 5 days a week. Some do, but the overwhelming majority don't. It's more like 4 hours today, 0 hours tomorrow, and maybe 0 hours the day after that ~ and sometimes there are breaks for weeks.
It depends on how many part timers they've got, and where the work takes place.
