Unrepresentative data?

Back to the discussion of censuses taking place in Pakistan and their validity, I came across a news article that claimed the past census of 1998 was seen to be flawed by certain members of the population. It seems if you’re a fisherman of the Christian faith you’re not likely to be on the census takers clipboard. Why is it that they’re not bothering to do their job properly? Some people give political reasons as to why the government would want to ‘exclude’ certain religious minorities. But is that really fair?
If the census isn’t taken properly, what’s the use of it?
