No change between 1990 and 2000, however, the sampling rate in rural areas is higher than
non-rural areas as much as 1:2 ratio compared to
the 1:6. So your chances of getting a long form if your "rural house" is truly
in a "rural area " as defined by the Census Bureau was much
higher. Lucky you!
Subject: Re: [CTPP] Long form blues
Has there been a change in the long-form sampling rate?
I have two residences (an inner-city condo, and a rural house), and managed to
get the long form at BOTH. Fortunately, I'm told I should only fill out one...
