"The Census Taker," Scott Wiseman 1940
In "A Portrait of America," NEWSWEEK (l/17/83) poked some fun at the national census:
&ls;Give your name and age and business. Is your husband working?
Do you rent or own the building? Did you ever milk a cow?
This is strictly confidential&md;are you underweight or fat?
Does your husband have a bunion? Are his arches good or flat?
Did you vote for Herbert Hoover? Are you dry or are you wet?
Did you ever use tobacco? Did you ever place a bet?. . .
Are you saving any money? Do you ever pay your debt?
Are your husband's old red flannels in the wash or on him yet?
