The 2010 Census was added to a list of high-risk programs in 2008 in part because of: (1) long-standing weaknesses in the Census Bureau¿s (CB) info. tech. acquisition and contract mgmt. function; (2) difficulties in developing reliable life-cycle cost estimates; and (3) key operations that were not tested under operational conditions. These issues jeopardized the CB¿s readiness for the count. Moreover, concerns over privacy have made a cost-effective census an increasingly difficult challenge. At $13 billion, 2010 was the costliest U.S. Census in history. This testimony focuses on lessons learned from the 2010 Census, and initiatives that show promise for producing a more cost-effective population count in 2020. Illus. This is a print on demand report.
