We received our 2011 census forms. Not unlike the UK or North American ones. Lots of questions about family, work, how far you travel to work etc.
My husband dropped it off at the town office as directed. It never occurred to me that this was strange until I was refused a genealogical search because the anagrafe office was 'doing the census'.
'Doing the census' involves checking each form to make sure all the questions are answered and if not, then calling you by phone to get the answer. I wonder how many of the questions were answered truthfully, since they (well except naive old me) would know that the answers would be seen by the town clerks. No privacy here folks!
