Was my understanding the sole purpose of the US census was to conduct a survey of the number of people in each region to determine such things as: Representation in congress, Street lights in town, how many schools should be in each region etc. Why then on the census form are there questions like what is your relationship to person 2, or is this residence owned by you or someone else? Or does this person stay at your home fulltime or sometimes live somewhere else? Sure seems like to me the Govt is trying to squeeze as much info out of us as possible, making me very uncomfortable. Dont think its the govts business as to whether I own my home outright or if I have a loan against it. Well that was my venting for now.
