  • Its to get an idea of how many people live where you are and how many children and what their ages are. That information will give them an idea if they need to make more schools, parks, etc.
    Dont feel like its invasion its easier this way. I mean they have your social security number and everything already. Besides if you go to the court house to public records then you can look up who owns what house, parole dates/probation dates, divorce papers etc.

  • hmm, i don't really see where you're coming from.... it just is about the age and number of people in your house. but anyhow, it is to determine how to spread out the funds..... like what communities need more schools, hospitals, etc. and also to study growth trends within the community, etc.
