best email of the week - census survey

I got this in the email this week... So this will be one you can answer...
So go read it... and then come back and tell me if they make you uncomfortable
and which ones if you would like. Or just one.
I will tell you the one that makes me the most uncomfortable is my exact birth
date. It already ask your age, so why do they need your full birthdate.
I know most of these answers will help get financing for your local area.
State, county and cities will get Federal money according to the answsers.
But how much do we want to give up about our own privacy for the sake of
our local area? Me... well, there are a few that I am thinking of writing NA.
What are they going to do ... take me to jail?
So go read it, and come back and let me know how you feel.
here is the email I got.

Please be very cautious of anything you receive from the Census Bureau.
There is a very real survey out (from the actual Census Bureau) that is
asking lots of questions about things that the government doesn't need
to know.
Here's a link to a copy of the survey, so you know what you're looking for.

Firefox wouldn't open it, but you're right about being careful to verify any census form you receive.
