Abstract The U.S. Census Bureau, in collaboration with a primary contractor and 14 subcontractors, created hundreds of advertisements in 28 different languages as part of the 2010 Census Integrated Communications Campaign. This effort was part of the Census Bureau’s integrated approach to communications activities for the 2010 Census, combining advertising, partnerships, public relations, Census in Schools, Road Tour, and digital media with the Census Bureau’s internal operations. The Census 2010 Publicity Office (C2PO) conducted a series of qualitative, quantitative, attitudinal, and behavioral research initiatives to serve as a foundation for the 2010 Census PO 00000 Frm 00001 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 Integrated Communications Program. Research results informed and validated marketing decisions throughout the entire campaign. C2PO researched all elements of the campaign across audiences to ensure that the messaging resonated with the targeted communities. The Census Barriers, Attitudes, and Motivators Survey (CBAMS), formerly known as the Census Participation Survey, was a cornerstone research effort for developing messages that would resonate and motivate participation. CBAMS included over 4,000 in-depth interviews: about 3,000 by phone and another 1,000 in person to ensure coverage in areas that were linguistically, culturally or geographically hard-to-reach as well as areas without phone service (one of the ‘‘hard-to-count’’ factors). The CBAMS sample was probabilistic so that it would be representative of the nation, with oversamples in hard-to-count populations; data collection for CBAMS occurred in July and August 2008. This survey measured previous Census participation, attitudes towards the Census, knowledge of the purpose of the Census, potential motivators and barriers to Census participation, reactions to potential messages, media consumption, and demographic information. Analysis of CBAMS data enhanced the cluster segmentation by providing much needed, up-to-date insight into how the target audiences feel about the Census, and why they may or may not participate, to help us develop appropriate messages to address these mindsets. CBAMS revealed five distinct mindsets among the population that varied in their knowledge of and attitudes toward the Census: Leading Edge, Head Nodders, Insulated, Unacquainted, and Cynical Fifth. While there are different cultural contexts that emerged, these mindsets exist throughout the population, regardless of race or ethnicity. CBAMS II will first replicate, to the extent practicable, the first CBAMS to determine the extent to which mindsets about the Census have changed over time. However, CBAMS II will also be expanded to investigate why nonresponders did not mail back their Census forms and to collect additional information to gain further insights into particular mindsets, such as the Cynical E:\FR\FM\29DEN1.SGM 29DEN1 81966 Federal Register / Vol. 75, No. 249 / Wednesday, December 29, 2010 / Notices Fifth. In addition, CBAMS II will result in a survey tool—a limited set of questions—that can be used in followon research studies to identify the likely segment of a survey respondent. Also, the survey will probe further into respondents’ views about the use of Administrative Records and other data sources to get a complete count of the population without direct interviews. II. Method of Collection CBAMS II will be administered to a sample of adults. Most interviews will be selected through random-digitdialing and administered via Computer Assisted Telephone Interviewing (CATI), while a small portion of the interviews will be conducted in-person. The CATI interviews will be conducted on both landline and cellular telephones. The cellular phone sample is designed to reach the young, unattached, mobile population, while the in-person interviews target hard-tocount populations including linguistically isolated Hispanics and Asians, American Indians on reservations, and the rural, economically disadvantaged population. srobinson on DSKHWCL6B1PROD with NOTICES III.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

I. Abstract

    The U.S. Census Bureau, in collaboration with a primary contractor 
and 14 subcontractors, created hundreds of advertisements in 28 
different languages as part of the 2010 Census Integrated 
Communications Campaign. This effort was part of the Census Bureau's 
integrated approach to communications activities for the 2010 Census, 
combining advertising, partnerships, public relations, Census in 
Schools, Road Tour, and digital media with the Census Bureau's internal 
operations.
    The Census 2010 Publicity Office (C2PO) conducted a series of 
qualitative, quantitative, attitudinal, and behavioral research 
initiatives to serve as a foundation for the 2010 Census Integrated 
Communications Program. Research results informed and validated 
marketing decisions throughout the entire campaign. C2PO researched all 
elements of the campaign across audiences to ensure that the messaging 
resonated with the targeted communities.
    The Census Barriers, Attitudes, and Motivators Survey (CBAMS), 
formerly known as the Census Participation Survey, was a cornerstone 
research effort for developing messages that would resonate and 
motivate participation. CBAMS included over 4,000 in-depth interviews: 
about 3,000 by phone and another 1,000 in person to ensure coverage in 
areas that were linguistically, culturally or geographically hard-to-
reach as well as areas without phone service (one of the ``hard-to-
count'' factors). The CBAMS sample was probabilistic so that it would 
be representative of the nation, with oversamples in hard-to-count 
populations; data collection for CBAMS occurred in July and August 
2008. This survey measured previous Census participation, attitudes 
towards the Census, knowledge of the purpose of the Census, potential 
motivators and barriers to Census participation, reactions to potential 
messages, media consumption, and demographic information.
    Analysis of CBAMS data enhanced the cluster segmentation by 
providing much needed, up-to-date insight into how the target audiences 
feel about the Census, and why they may or may not participate, to help 
us develop appropriate messages to address these mindsets. CBAMS 
revealed five distinct mindsets among the population that varied in 
their knowledge of and attitudes toward the Census: Leading Edge, Head 
Nodders, Insulated, Unacquainted, and Cynical Fifth. While there are 
different cultural contexts that emerged, these mindsets exist 
throughout the population, regardless of race or ethnicity.
    CBAMS II will first replicate, to the extent practicable, the first 
CBAMS to determine the extent to which mindsets about the Census have 
changed over time. However, CBAMS II will also be expanded to 
investigate why non-responders did not mail back their Census forms and 
to collect additional information to gain further insights into

Fifth. In addition, CBAMS II will result in a survey tool--a limited 
set of questions--that can be used in follow-on research studies to 
identify the likely segment of a survey respondent. Also, the survey 
will probe further into respondents' views about the use of 
Administrative Records and other data sources to get a complete count 
of the population without direct interviews.

II. Method of Collection

    CBAMS II will be administered to a sample of adults. Most 
interviews will be selected through random-digit-dialing and 
administered via Computer Assisted Telephone Interviewing (CATI), while 
a small portion of the interviews will be conducted in-person. The CATI 
interviews will be conducted on both landline and cellular telephones. 
The cellular phone sample is designed to reach the young, unattached, 
mobile population, while the in-person interviews target hard-to-count 
populations including linguistically isolated Hispanics and Asians, 
American Indians on reservations, and the rural, economically 
disadvantaged population.
