WTH kind of questions are on the Census 2010 BOOK they mailed?

Ok, I went to the mailbox and pulled out a BOOK from the Census 2010 that had been sent to be filled out. Some of the questions are just plain nosey. I don't think many of the questions are any of their fricking business. Now that I have that off my chest, what are others thoughts on this.

  • Welcome to the club!! As far as I am concerned it amounts to an "unreasonable search."

    I won't be answering all of those questions. I will only answer what is required of me by the constittution.

  • I think that you should not answer. The only thing you are legally obligated to answer is how many people live in your house and the ages.

  • That is why the "N/A" was invented. Don't leave any spaces in blank.

  • I've heard the only thing required is the address and the number of people in your houshold, not sure if that is true or not.

    What's your race?

  • Anon :43 have you recieved your census form yet? It is 28 pages long and EACH person in the household has 48 questions pertaining to them. Example: #30 At what location did this person work LAST week? #47 Wages, salary,commissions,bonuses,or tips from all jobs.
