Im not actually in Greenland. I just like the name of the country. 8)


The census is a joke, there are people making profit out of this and the government really has no right to the information on the forms, and it already has it all anyway. Its an intrusion of privacy and a way for the government to make money.

Census guides in the wrong hands can be a dangerous business. They speculate that keep people anonymous with the Census which is true, though the information they will gather about you will be used to determine how the economy is running, and in the wrong places, banks, insurance, government, real estate companies will be eager to obtain that information to determine how the economy is running and if it warrants increasing profit margins based on that information. So Census Guides could well be responsible for raising the bar on living so to speak and anyone whose a battler will always struggle. So either lie on these Guides or don't fil it in at all.

Don't lie, and don't return the form at all. If you make contact with them in any way then they will be able to fine you (and they will, they will do ANYTHING to get money). Ignore the door next Sunday too. Don't play their game, then you cant lose.

Yes - now I remember the dispute, how companies buy the data. When I was studying in Cardiff I was in awe when I saw and used a data mining program that had so detailed information about income, political views and other stuff that it really made me wonder... Amazing. Awful, too.

Sounds like their a cult!
 
I mean to lie on a form I mean within reason, information is information and if details of somebodies income a year ago is different from the period you get a census guide, then surely it's not being caught in an extreme lie. Obviously to not hand that kind of information in means to tell everyone to stop filling in those forms, high income earners or stubborn people aren't simply going to stop this activity if their consistantly filling their rubbish in.

I remember some years ago, a campaign to get people to list their religion as "Jedi" on census forms. :)
