Abstract During the years preceding the 2020 Census, the Census Bureau will pursue its commitment to reducing the costs of conducting a decennial census while maintaining our commitment to quality. In the 2018 Fiscal Year, the Census Bureau will be performing a 2018 Endto-End Census Test. This last major test before the 2020 Census has the stated purpose (1) to test and validate 2020 Census operations, procedures, systems, and field infrastructure together to ensure proper integration and conformance with functional and nonfunctional requirements, and (2) to produce a prototype of geographic and data products. As in previous censuses, the PostEnumeration Survey for the 2020 Census will be conducted to provide estimates of census net coverage error and components of census coverage (such as correct enumerations, omissions, and erroneous enumerations, including duplicates) for housing units and persons living in housing units (see Definition of Terms) for the United States (U.S.) and Puerto Rico, excluding remote Alaska. These coverage estimates provide insight into the quality and coverage of census results, which can be used to improve future censuses. Given that the Post-Enumeration Survey involves several field data collection activities on a sample basis and several matching activities between the survey and the 2020 Census during the 2020 Census timeline, these PostEnumeration Survey operations will also require testing during the 2018 End-to-End Census Test. It is also important to note that for the PostEnumeration Survey methods, we need to ensure independence between the survey and census operations to prevent any of the programs affecting each other results. The Independent Listing operation, beginning in January of 2018, is the first Post-Enumeration Survey operation in the 2018 End-to-End Census Test. It will be conducted to obtain a complete inventory of all the housing unit addresses within the Post-Enumeration Survey sample of Basic Collection Units (BCUs) before the 2018 End-to-End Census Test enumeration commences. The following objectives are crucial to a successful Independent Listing operation: • Test the automated listing and mapping capabilities required. • Validate the creation of the Independent Listing workload. PO 00000 Frm 00007 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 95561 • Conduct a listing quality control operation during the Independent Listing operation. The Post-Enumeration Survey Independent Listing operation for the 2018 End-to-End Census Test will be conducted in selected survey sample areas in the specified sites listed below in the U.S. (excluding remote Alaska). The primary sampling unit is a BCU. The currently determined test sites are Pierce County, Washington; Providence County, Rhode Island; and the Bluefield-Beckley-Oak Hill, West Virginia area. As in the past, the PostEnumeration Survey operations and activities will be conducted separate from and independent of the other 2018 End-to-End Census Test operations to prevent any potential contamination of census or Post-Enumeration Survey results. During the Independent Listing operation, field staff, referred to as listers, will canvass every street, road, or other place where people might live in their assigned BCUs and construct a list of housing units using an automated data collection instrument on a mobile device. The mobile device will contain the data collection instrument with digital maps of the area that needs to be canvassed. Listers will attempt to contact a member of each housing unit they encounter in their route. If someone answers, the lister will provide a Confidentiality Notice and ask about the address in order to collect the address information, as appropriate. To ensure all units at a multi-unit are properly listed, the lister will then ask if there are any additional vacant or occupied units in the structure or on the property. If there are additional units, the lister will collect and update that information. Multi-units are defined as apartment buildings or houses, condominiums, duplexes and triplexes, in addition to separate housing units with attached apartments, such as basement or garage, or similar apartments where people could be living on Census Day. To be classified as a separate unit, these must meet the housing unit definition requirement of having direct access from outside or through a common hallway, and must either have someone living there or be intended for occupancy, even if vacant at the time of the Independent Listing operation. Mobile homes and trailers, both in a park and not in a park, will also be listed, including any empty lots or pads in the parks in the BCU. Finally, any occupied camper, recreational vehicle, van, boat, tent or other location where people are living during the listing operation will also be listed as housing units.
