Question to the recruiters, How many candidates do you usually give a hiring manager for a particular position?

Recruiters - genuine question. How important are the sex/gender/age/race-based questions on applications? Am I actually less likely to get a job if I answer them? I usually leave any optional questions like that blank, is that preventing me from getting work? I'm F, in my early 30's, and Black. Please spill the tea.
