I have no problem generally with the census, and understand what it's used for. I'm not happy about providing identified information on a compulsory basis when non-identifiable information would do the job just as well.

So I'm In a same sex relationship, our daughter was conceived with anonymous donor sperm. Both my wife and I are on her birth certificate. I emailed them and said how do we fill it out properly. They said to put birth mother as parent 1 and as much details as we knew of donor for parent 2. WTF? I am her parent 2.
So. How will you be filling it in?

Candiceo started, that it seemed to ask for parent details, then ask separately for things about the 'father', eg country of birth. My DS has a donor, not a 'father' so i will be seeing if you can select 'not applicable' or something like that for those questions.
From memory, the census asks for details of all people in the house, and things like what their relationship is to 'Person 1'. I certainly intend that both my DP and i will be listed as parents for DS ( aka 'Person 3' ☺ )

I'm definitely planning on putting DP and myself as the parents. The anonymous donor is not a parent. I think what matters is who is parenting a child surely?
If they want that kind of detail about the donor they can redesign their census questions to ask it.

No way will I give so much information about me on such a poorly secured system.
I have participated in the last census happily and didn't think twice about it because it was anonymous.

I came from a family of people who refused census (Dutch family, WWII issues) but I don't mind it. I haven't seen how it's done as I haven't got my code yet but I assume there may be a spike in population for the Noname family. As well as their neighbours John and Jane Doe.
I don't mind the idea of it. I'm actually keen to see the results for my town. Does anyone know when this information becomes accessible?
