    • political affiliations or beliefs of the student or his/her parents;
    • mental or psychological problems of the student or his/her family;
    • sex behavior or attitudes;
    • illegal, anti-social, self-incriminating or demeaning behavior;
    • critical appraisals of other individuals with whom respondents have close family relationships;
    • legally recognized privileged and analogous relationships, such as those of lawyers, physicians, and ministers;
    • religious practices, affiliations, or beliefs of the student or his/her parents; or
    • income (other than that required by law to determine eligibility for participation in a program or for receiving financial assistance under such a program).
