In most of the areas where Fieldcrest
employees live, householders will use
the one-way mail method. They have
received or will receive the forms in
the mail. They will fill out the forms
and have them ready for a census taker
At every fifth household, the census
taker will fill out the longer form by
interview. Census takers in the one
way mail areas will begin their house-
to-house canvass Wednesday, April 1.
In order to obtain a full picture of
the American population each person
in each household must be listed along
with age, race, sex, marital status, and
relationship to the head of the house
Other questions are to be asked of
everyone concerning housing conditions.
They include such items as the number
of rooms occupied by the family, kitch

rent or ownership.
The rest of the needed information
will be obtained by additional questions
asked one household in every five.
The law requires that census questions
be answered truthfully and to the best
of one’s knowledge. Every question is
asked because the information is need

on any one individual, family or busi
All results are tabulated by com
puters, but names and addresses are not
fed into the computer. No government
agency may examine individual census
records for any purpose whatsoever.
The 1970 census will do much more
than tell how large the population is.
From these questionnaires will come a
volume of new and vital facts about the
American people and their way of life.
