France has a law forbidding the collection of sexual, ethnic, political, religuous, citizen information. Are there other nations where it is impossible to conduct a census or know information about religious, cultural or ethnic attributes of the population?

article 6 of Law n ° 78-17 of January 6, 1978" Data processing and freedoms " [ 3 ] , [ 4 ] according to which:

"It is prohibited to process personal data which reveals the alleged racial or ethnic origin, political opinions, religious or philosophical convictions or trade union membership of a citizen or to process genetic data, biometric data for the purpose of uniquely identifying a natural person, data relating to health or data relating to the sexual life or sexual orientation of a natural person ” .
