Homework Equations



No equation is involved.

The Attempt at a Solution



I know there is something like census; which is an official count or survey of a population, typically recording various details of an individuals.
Population is further subdivided into occupational distribution of population, gender distribution of population and age distribution of population.
What am concerned with right now is the occupational distribution of population. To answer that question, we need to know why goverment do take census on the working populace. What is the motive behind that?
To me, I think do it just to know the number of people working and those not working so as to create more employment and make life better for it citizens.
None of the multiple choice answers seem to correctly describe the motive of goverment in doing so. I know that choice B, C, D and E may contain one of the reason or motives that is best suitable, but I want others to help me look into the topic so that we can analyse and resolve the question together.
