Recently a "Field Representative" from the Census Bureau…

Hello, Recently a "Field Representative"...
Hello, Recently a "Field Representative" from the Census Bureau called at my house. She told me that I needed to answer questions relating to the my health plus other personal things. She was quite insistent and told me that the questioning would take around 45 minutes. I was just on my way to work when she called so I told her that I didn't have time to answer the questions. Since then she's called several times and now sits outside my house in her car. Frankly I feel this is an intrusion of my privacy but I think I may have some legal obligation to do as she asks. I've heard that these people can ask all sorts of personal questions that I don't want to answer, plus I'm expected to invite the person into my home. Please can you tell me what my legal obligation is here? Is there a basic set of questions that must be answered leaving me able to refuse to answer others? I am sure this person is genuine and not a scammer.

Your answer is acceptable if it's correct. I always thought that I was in some way legally bound to answer census questions. Are you quite sure I can tell this person to go away without legal repercussion?
I live in Wyoming.
Absolutely. It is voluntary.

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
