This applies to US readers only, but is anyone else really disappointed by the lack of depth in the 2010 census.
I'm young enough that I've never had to fill one out before but there are only 10 questions, and some are redundant! For instance, question one is 'How many people live in the house?'. Question two is 'Is there anyone living in your house you did not count in question one'?
Then later there is a question asking if you are of Latin decent and then the very next question it asks what your race is. Your phone number is even one of the 10 questions.
There are no questions on religious affiliation, income level, education level, healthcare status, marriage, composition of household members (children, grandparents, extended family, friends), time of stay etc that seem pertinent to public policy.
I'm sure there are some tea baggers that think the government would just use that information against them, but come on, there is so little real information gathered its hardly worth doing.
