I've known towns where they ask which church you go to, for similar reasons.

I vaguely remember an old article discussing how ad agencies divide the population according to what products they are likely to buy and what ad/sales approaches were most likely to work. These were not geographic divisions, exactly, although each sort of person was more likely to live different places.

I think one division was called rifles and pickups. I'm pretty sure the ad guys expected the groups to be fluid.
