2010 Census: Plans for Decennial Census Operations and Technology Have Progressed, But Much Uncertainty Remains: Congressional Testimony
DIANE Publishing, Jan 1, 2009 - 12 pages
On April 3, 2008, the Sec. of Commerce announced significant changes to how the Census Bureau would conduct non-response follow-up, in which census workers interview households that do not return census forms for the 2010 decennial census, and to its Field Data Collection Automation (FDCA) contract. The Bureau has since issued a redesigned plan to conduct a paper-based follow-up operation, a 2010 Census project schedule, and is working on revising the FDCA contract. These are major changes late in the decennial census cycle. This testimony discusses: (1) the Bureau¿s plans for conducting a paper-based non-response follow-up operation; (2) mgmt. of the FDCA contract and its latest cost estimate; and (3) the status of the 2010 project schedule.
