Long-form Census - Festive Edition
A random thought occurred to me today, as I take my first day off for Christmas vacation. The biblical-era Roman census, which required that Mary and Joseph return to his hometown of Bethlehem to be counted - finding no room at the inn, spending the night in a stable, etc. - certainly puts the inconvenience and intrusiveness into one's daily life of taking a couple of hours in the comfort of one's own home to answer questions about one's language skills, ethnic origin, income level, and other Canadian long-form census topics into perspective, doesn't it?
A pity I didn't think of that argument several months ago. Ah well.
Merry Christmas all!Recommend this Post
