SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: I. Abstract The 2010 Census Coverage Measurement (CCM) Person Interview and Reinterview Operations will be conducted in the U.S. (excluding remote Alaska) and in Puerto Rico in select CCM sampled areas. The primary sampling unit is a block cluster, which consists of one or more geographically contiguous census blocks. As in the past, the CCM operations and activities will be conducted independent of and not influence the 2010 Census operations. CCM will be conducted to provide estimates of both net coverage error and coverage error components for PO 00000 Frm 00003 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 omissions and erroneous enumerations for housing units and persons in housing units (see Definition of Terms) in order to gather information necessary to improve future censuses. The data collection and matching methodologies for previous coverage measurement programs were designed only to measure net coverage error, which measures the net difference between omissions and erroneous enumerations. The 2010 CCM sample is a multiphase probability sample of housing units comprising a number of distinct processes, ranging from forming block clusters, selecting the block clusters where the CCM survey will be conducted, to eventually selecting addresses for interviewing. Two samples will be selected to measure census coverage of housing units and household population: The population sample or P Sample; and the enumeration sample or E sample. These two samples have traditionally defined the samples for dual system estimation, a statistical technique for measuring net coverage error. The P Sample is a sample of housing units and persons obtained and independently enumerated from the census for a sample of block clusters, while the E Sample is a sample of census housing units and enumerations in the same block clusters as the P sample. The independent list of housing units is obtained during the CCM Independent Listing Operation, the results of which will be matched to census housing units in the sample block clusters and surrounding blocks. After the CCM Independent Listing and matching operations have taken place, some cases with discrepancies between the CCM Independent Listing and the Census will be identified to receive the CCM Housing Unit Followup interview. The results of this interview will again be matched to the list of census housing units. The results of the housing unit matching operations will be used to determine which CCM and Census addresses will be eligible to go to the CCM Person Interview (PI) Operation. After data collected from the CCM PI is matched to data collected by the Census, some cases with discrepancies between the CCM PI and Census will be sent for another CCM interview called the CCM Person Followup Operation. A separate Federal Register Notice has already been issued for the CCM Independent Listing and CCM Housing Unit Followup operations. A Federal Register Notice will be issued later for the CCM Person Followup Operation. For each sample block cluster, we will conduct a CCM PI for selected housing units. During CCM PI, interviewers will E:\FR\FM\19JNN1.SGM 19JNN1
