I saw the $2.5 million census ad during the super bowl. I received BOTH census reminder mailers – one before I received the actual census and one after. I’ve seen dozens of commercials and just as many billboards along the freeway and in my community.
According to the Census Director, this flood of advertising will save money (see: http://blogs.census.gov/2010census/2010/02/why-use-advance-letters.html and http://blogs.census.gov/2010census/2010/02/2010-census-ad-campaign-positioned-to-save-taxpayers-millions.html)
I’ve read the reasons and I know how I feel but…
What do you think?
Waste of money? Or saving money?
