Is Everyone, no matter what ancestry, asked if they are Hispanic? Or only some people are asked if they are Hispanic on government forms?

Update:

Are only Hispanic asked if they identify as Hispanic on government forms?

    The forms are the forms and everyone gets the same forms. So the question is just there for all of us.

    I think that would be illegal in my country (Canada).  As only about 2% of people in Canada can even speak Spanish, there is no need to ask the question anyway.

    If the question is on a govt form, it applies to everyone who uses that particular form.
