Around 610,000 census takers who started knocking on doors Monday will put questionnaires in letter boxes, instead of handing them over at the door as they used to, and will give explanations of the content via the interphone to avoid direct contact.

Just two hours ago the guy rang our doorbell and handed it to me directly. Not a big deal, but just sayin.

I got mine in the mail over the weekend. Maybe I wasn't home when they rang. It says we are supposed to fill it in by law, but what happens in case of non-compliance I wonder? Jail time and a fine, or absolutely nothing just like a lot of their other toothless laws?

FYI, straight from their website

Q2.調査に回答しないと罰金があるのか?

A.統計法では、50万円以下の罰金が設けられています。しかし、法律に基づくものであるからといって、強制的に調査しても、必ずしもよい成果が得られるとは限りません。国勢調査はきわめて重要な調査であり、その結果は、行政を通じて私たちの生活に還元されます。ぜひ、ご理解、ご回答をお願いいたします。

So there is a penalty, but they can't force us and therefore ask for our cooperation. Mkay...

Bad timing! We continue to underestimate the power of the virus to spread into every nook and cranny of the land! The census should have been postponed like the Olympics.

What if we don't fill it out or hand it in? What's in it for me? I'm asking for a friend.
