Midget census taker
In this well-traveled urban legend, a parent returns home from a shopping trip to find her mentally-challenged son in a very excited state.

What do US Census Takers Do?
The Urban Legend of the Troll in the Closet
Americans who, for whatever reason, do not complete and return a Census Bureau questionnaire can expect a personal visit from a census taker or "enumerator. Prewitt's April 5, testimony to the House Subcommittee on the Census, "Each enumerator is given a binder of addresses in that area that includes all those addresses for which we have not received a completed questionnaire. Because houses without numbers and street name addresses can be difficult to find, enumerators in rural areas also receive maps that have the housing unit locations spotted on them. The enumerator must go to each address in the assignment area to complete the appropriate questionnaire either short form or long form for the housing unit and its occupants. If the unit was occupied by a different household on Census Day , the enumerator completes a questionnaire for the occupants who lived there on Census Day by interviewing a knowledgeable person, such as a neighbor. If the current occupants were not enumerated elsewhere, the enumerator will also complete a census questionnaire for them for their Census Day address. If the housing unit was vacant on Census Day, the enumerator completes appropriate housing questions on the questionnaire by interviewing a knowledgeable person, such as a neighbor or apartment house manager.
