If you had an experience like mine I recommend contacting your congressman
and senators. I asked the ACS interviewer 3 times why they couldn't get some
parts of the survey from the 10 year census which I already completed and was
simply reminded that is a different database and they are not connected.
Two different mandatory databases?
I didn't like the sound of that but continued since I wanted to get done with
Database of contacts to the congress.

My email input to my representatives...
I am very angry over the intrusive nature of the Census Bureau's ACS
American Community Survey required by a select portion of America.
I was threatened with punitive action if I did not respond and was
assigned a case number. I did eventually respond with answers to about half of
the questions, negative reply to the rest. I think I avoided the punitive
action. This is a very intrusive
and unnecessary survey to be forced on the American population. Every question
asked is already available through other government agencies using the
appropriate need to know, the point is there is no need to know.
I believe the information taken was done for political purpose only
and would like this survey to be stopped as a mandatory, punitive, survey.
