The last to census' I was blessed with "the long form" - and it's rather intrusive. It took a while to fill out. It was an invasion of privacy - but actually NOT my right as a US citizen to ignore: it's a constitutional imperative. Aside from being illegal, ignoring it is, in the aggregate, a loss to one's community at all levels. Population based resources will be short-changed due to your not being counted.

Fill out the wrong information? In this case, to what end? I've thoroughly scrambled my on-line identity. Only financial institutions have the correct information on things (again, by law). Even the 'special questions' are not answered with real personal info, but with a systematic code that can be deduced from each site so memory isn't a problem.

In practical terms, even without my cooperation, I doubt they'd ask for something Google didn't already know
