Sure, social questions should be permitted to be asked on a additional voluntary questionnaire separate from the main census. As long as a non-response option is provided.

We spend millions of taxpayer money on social programs every year. while I disagree with many social programs that are being funded by the taxpayer, some are extremely beneficial to the communities they serve. For now, without proposed alternatives to meeting the needs served by these social programs, it is important to ensure the taxpayers money is being allocated effectively.
