Bullshit, Mikey.

The only reason for a census is the help the rulers adjust tax
rates.  Those rates have nothing to do with where you were from,
just were you live.  The tax assessor wants to make sure that
the proper amt was being paid, not in the place of birth, but
as an aggragate in the local district, based on the number of
people that live in the district.
