I get it. I'm no Shakespeare. Humor me, okay? Or laugh at me...or pity me...or something. Just don't give the census taker all of your information. Or your first-born child. I hear they'll take either.
What info are you required to give a census taker? Let's go to the "Bible" (so to speak) of the US: the Constitution of the United States of America.
First, we'll go to Article 1, Section 2:
"...The actual Enumeration shall be made within three Years after the first Meeting of the Congress of the United States, and within every subsequent Term of ten Years..."Now, let's go to Section 2 of the 14th Amendment where they updated & amended Article 1, Section 2 to account for the prohibition of slavery:
"Representatives shall be apportioned among the several States according to their respective numbers, counting the whole number of persons in each State, excluding Indians not taxed..."Perhaps you could help me. I'm having trouble finding where we have the Constitutional obligation to answer anything other than how many people reside at our household.
So...THAT is the one question that we will answer.
