I tossed mine. I filled out my taxes. They already know everything about me. If they can't figure that much out, then they don't deserve to know.

Here in AZ they are trying to make sure all the illegals get to fill out their census.

There was not a single question about citizenship or legal status on the form I got. I don't know where you got the idea that they want to know "how many illegals live in your home." I hope that was tongue in cheek.

Overall, a big improvement from the past.

Why the race questions?
If I am white and 200 years ago my ancestors came from South Africa am I an African American?
I marked other and put American.

We discussed this in Biological Anthropology this week, Hispanics are not a race it's a reference to linguistic background. Meaning you came from a country that speaks spanish.

I find the whole "race" question to be offensive. Especially when you look at the diversity of answers given to the various "races" (ie all the option under "asian") yet "white" people are ONLY classified by the color of their skin. Even further most options given under "race" speak to nationality of origin, only "white" and "black" are actual references to the so called "race".
Why does the Government keep trying to segregate and classify people based on intangible factors? So much for progress I guess.
When only cops have guns, it's called a "police state". Love your country, but never trust its government.

I thought we were supposed to be working toward being a 'color-blind society'.
The census shows that our government wants nothing of that concept.

I have no problems answering a Constitutionally mandated census. If you have a Social Security number everybody already knows your secrets.

Some of this information I feel leads to/is used for prejudice polices and some of it I feel is none of their business. I have no problem with the Census bureau getting a count of Americans per area, but that's all they should need to designate Representatives and tax funds. They do not need personal information to do this and they do not need Race or Origin questions. The Census should be 3 or 4 questions at most. How many legal Citizens live at this address and what are the age groups of these citizens would address the enumeration issue for representatives and tax funds purposes.
And BTW, everyone who has already sent the Census back in has answered a couple questions untruthfully. The question ask how many people live or stayed in your residence on April 1, 2010. Since this date has not arrived, you have no way of knowing for sure and thus could not of answered truthfully, only guessed/assumed that things wouldn't have changed.

I asked and was informed that any information I put down was confidential. They told me there was no way of identifying me from my form I send in. Then I asked them how they would know who to fine if I chose not to answer some questions.

Me too. I answered question #1 and enclosed the following:
