I also hate the BS brainwashing commercials that imply that filling out a census form will improve local schools. Again, wrong. Schools use their own student counts to determine STATE funding. Federal money doesn't support local schools directly.
It's all about Congressional districts and representation - that's why it's in the Constitution.
Then what is it used for?
You don't think census data would paint a better picture to the politicians of where to help?
I realize most politicians suck ass, but doesn't mean every single one wants to bend us over.
