That's because everyone moved out of NJ because there are no jobs, taxes are ever increasing, and rampant political corruption. The houses that are not responding are probably empty due to foreclosure caused by the greed of the large banks that get a 2nd chance. The same swine who caused this problem are the only ones that get bailed out. NJ is a joke.

The reason for the low response is not based on the opinion of Steve. In fact, the low response is due to those families who have somehow migrated here to Jersey who live in homes and do not speak hardly any English.

In the homes here in my city, they do not understand nor care about the Census becasue they are not educated to the American system of Government and are living in homes where there are illegal dwellings filled with possibly illegal aliens having no green cards or legal status in this country.

The Census will fail this year to obtain a legal count of all of those living here in this country because the government is too lazy to hire people to wlak the blocks and go house to house like they did some years ago to ensure an accurate account of those who decide tolive here. If the government thinks they will get it done through the mail, they can forget it!
