What you need to know about the upcoming postal census
As the postal survey comes to an end, what you need are some basics about the postal census.
What will it cover?
The census will take place from September to December 2019 and it will determine who will be the postal service’s chief executive, who will lead the company, and who will manage the business operations.
How will it work?
The Postal Service will set the rules and regulations that will govern its operations and its businesses.
The company will use the Census to conduct the most detailed, accurate, and timely census available for any census in history.
What are the costs?
The USPS will use a total of $1.5 billion to administer the census.
The rest will be split among the USPS’s staff and vendors.
The total cost of the census will be $9.5 million.
Will the census be conducted in person or online?
Yes, the USPS will conduct the census using face-to-face interviews, and a total online census will also be conducted.
There will be no online census.
Will it be a federal census?
The Census will be a “public service” survey and will be conducted by a federal agency.
There is no reason to believe that it will be subject to any federal privacy laws or to be a data collection program under any federal law.
Is it mandatory?
In addition to the census, the Postal Service’s mandate includes conducting a survey on federal employment, social security, and veterans’ benefits, as well as providing health and dental care.
Can I apply for a postal census?
No, but you can apply for other forms of census information such as a county survey, the Census Bureau’s Census Collection Program, and the census census, which will be administered by the Census Research Program.
Can my family or friends apply for postal census data?
Yes if they wish.
But if you want to apply, you must apply by August 31, 2019.
