It's because there is no residency requirement to have a PO Box. You don't have to live here to get a PO Box here. So instead, they focus the count on households. They will come to every house that doesn't send in a form.

Some people do fall through the cracks- if you only get mail at a PO Box and you're out of town for the next few months, you'll probably not be counted.

i live in midway, where we are unable to get USPS service. i had someone come to the door last fall and tell me the census was coming about, but i haven't heard a thing since. nothing in the PO box, no one at my door.

apparently my husband and i won't be counted.

nah, go to the census website and get yourself counted. you can call the 800 number and take care of the questions.
