2010 Census: Little Time Remains to Address Operational Challenges: Congressional Testimony
DIANE Publishing, 2009 - 21 pages
The Census Bureau has insufficient policies and procedures and inadequately trained staff for conducting high-quality cost estimation for the decennial census. Lacking plans for the development of both non-response follow-up and the management system, the Bureau faces the risk of not having them developed and fully tested in time for the 2010 Census. The Bureau faces long-standing challenges with the nation's linguistic diversity and privacy concerns, which can contribute to the under-counting of some groups. With just over a year remaining until Census Day, uncertainties surround the Bureau's overall readiness for 2010. Illustrations.
