Why did you fill out all the Census Questions? Did you know...

that the only question that was required to be answered was the question about the number of individuals living @ your address.

  • Yes, I filled it out and I only answered the first question. The government already has plenty of sources of my family's personal information.

  • Yes, I filled them all out, and yes I knew that. I worked for the Census and I understood that the more information I provide the more money the aspects of local life that affect me will get. The more kids that are documented the more money schools get... The more driver aged teens and adults the more your local roads will be funded... The list goes on. Why would you want to short yourself by not providing all that information?

  • I was sent a Census form that asked for that and my race, I filled it out completely. It is very neccesary for you comunity. Honestly, if the government had the time, money and manpower, they would know your race and all the answers anyway, why not just fill it out correctly and fully? Geeze. You won't die from filling it out.

  • I am with outstandingLove on this one even if I'm not part of the military. come on, they are probably looking at all our posts right now and watching me pick my nose in the car on the way to work. As much as we want to believe, they have much more info on us that we would like.

  • It was only 10 questions, and took less than 2 minutes from opening it up to sticking the completed form in the mailbox. What's the big deal? It didn't hurt a bit.
