    Isn't the census getting just a little too personal?

    If they show up at my door, ok, you know my address, you see I'm a male, white, I'm XX years old and my name is ________ ________. Now get the hell off my land.

    That's what they'll get from me, and not a damn thing more.

    I don't know why everyone is getting so twisted for. The census has been asking personal and impertinent questions since 1790

    You would do well to answer all census questions accurately. The community in which you live relies on federal tax dollars which are distributed based upon census data. Don't short yourself or your town/city.

    It's not a game you stupid fucks.

    I think if it wants additional information from me then it will have to pay me. Until then I will only answer the one I am required to in order to know how many representatives my district gets.

    What kind of an idiotic reply is that. You minimalist ass wipe. Paranoia strikes deep. Into your life it will creep.

    Give it up for the census all of you.

    You've got nothing to lose and much to gain.

    I suggest you read the Constitution. The PURPOSE of the Census is to determine where our Representatives come from. All they need for that is how many people live where. All the rest is fishing. I will answer all the questions but they are NOT part of the purpose of the Census.

    Thanks for that. But I belive the results derived from the census are used for much more than determining Representative boundaries. Such boundaries are often drawn based upon the whims of those elected, not demographics. Such is the case in Illinois.

    The importance of obtaining sample sets within a universal population are essential in defining such demographics. Ideally the census will give an accurate depiction of a population, allowing a snapshot from which can be identified those groups to be so represented.
