Burrell, We don’t send census forms to P.O. boxes. The census is all about counting people where they live and sleep, so we must tie each form to a physical location. P.O. boxes are not tied to specific housing units, so we can’t use them to send the forms to specific housing units. One of our census workers will visit houses that rely on P.O. boxes between May 1 and July 10.

LeRoy, If you receive your form at the right address then you will be coded at the right address. The address on the form will not always match the address of your home. See the director's blog on this topic: http://blogs.census.gov/2010census/2010/03/if-you-got-a-form-youll-be-counted-in-the-right-location.html
Mary, Please see the Director's blog on this issue:http://blogs.census.gov/2010census/2010/04/post-office-boxes-and-households-without-forms.html
Robert, Simply say I don't have a form id when the automated system prompts you-- you can then request one sent to your house.
Claire, You can discard the second one if you have sent in the first.
Jeff, All personally identifiable information is kept confidential, data is only used for statistical purposes. For more information on privacy please see http://2010.census.gov/2010census/privacy/index.php
Mrs. H, You can now call our 1-866-872-6868 line and request a questionnaire.
Sean, No law overrides the confidentiality law that protects the personal information collected by the Census Bureau, or can force the Census Bureau to share census responses. The Justice Department recently confirmed that no provision of the Patriot Act overrides the confidentiality law that protects census responses.
