Abstract As in previous censuses, the PostEnumeration Survey (PES) for the 2020 Census will be conducted to provide estimates of census net coverage and components of census coverage (such as correct enumerations, omissions, erroneous enumerations [including duplicates], and whole-person imputations) for housing units and people living in housing units for the United States and Puerto Rico, excluding remote Alaska. (See Definition of Terms.) Group quarters (such as college dormitories and correctional facilities) are out of scope E:\FR\FM\17APN1.SGM 17APN1 amozie on DSK9F9SC42PROD with NOTICES Federal Register / Vol. 84, No. 74 / Wednesday, April 17, 2019 / Notices because populations can change significantly between census enumeration and PES enumeration operations. Similarly, remote Alaska is out of scope for the PES because the seasonal nature of addresses and the population throughout the year make it infeasible to accurately conduct the matching and follow-up operations necessary for dual-system estimation. For this reason, the Census Bureau’s past post-enumeration surveys have never included remote Alaska. These coverage estimates provide insight into the quality and coverage of census results and operations. As in the past, including in the 2010 Census Coverage Measurement program, the 2020 PES operations and activities must be conducted separate from, and independent of, the other 2020 Census operations. The 2020 PES will use the dualsystem estimation procedure, which depends on two independent systems of measurement. The independence between the PES and census operations is a fundamental necessity for dualsystem estimation. The PES will comprise two independent enumerations of housing units and the household population within the same sample areas. These two enumerations are called the enumeration sample (E sample) and the population sample (P sample). The primary sampling unit is the basic collection unit (BCU), which is the smallest unit of collection geography for 2020 Census operations. The E sample contains the list of housing units and people enumerated in the 2020 Census within a sample of BCUs. The P sample contains housing units and people in the sample set of sample BCUs, but obtained independently from the census. The independent roster of housing units is obtained during the PES Independent Listing, while the independent roster of people is obtained during the PES Person Interview. The P sample housing units and people will be matched to all census housing units in the sample BCUs and surrounding BCUs. 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 from scratch. Following the completion of listing for each BCU, the addresses are computer and clerically matched in the Initial Housing Unit Matching operation. Addresses that remain unmatched or have unresolved address status after matching will be sent to the Initial Housing Unit Follow-up operation, during which listers collect additional VerDate Sep<11>2014 18:23 Apr 16, 2019 Jkt 247001 information that might allow a resolution of any differences between the Independent Listing and the preliminary census address list results. Matching to a preliminary census file of housing units allows the PES to conduct person interviews close to census day (April 1, 2020), rather than waiting until the final census list is available. In the Final Housing Unit Matching operation addresses collected in the Independent Listing operation are matched to the final census list of housing units. The Initial Housing Unit Follow-up field operation seeks to answer questions needed to resolve the match or enumeration status of addresses identified in the Initial Housing Unit matching operation, while the Final Housing Unit Follow-up field operation seeks to answer similar questions identified in the Final Housing Unit matching operation. A Federal Register Notice has been issued for the PES Independent Listing operation (Federal Register Notice Vol. 83 FR 53849, pages 53849–53850). Federal Register Notices for the Person Interview and Person Follow-up operations will be issued at a later date. Addresses identified for both Initial and Final Housing Unit Follow-ups will generally need additional information to determine housing unit status (for example, to clarify if the addresses refer to a housing unit or commercial building and to identify duplicate addresses) or to resolve inconsistencies between the PES and census addresses. Using paper questionnaires tailored to capture information needed to resolve each specific status question or discrepancy, listers will contact a member of each housing unit and ask questions to resolve housing unit status or to clarify discrepancies. If the listers do not find anyone at home after several attempts, they will try to collect the information from a proxy or by observation as a last resort. Proxies are respondents who are not members of the household. The Initial and Final Housing Unit Follow-up operations will also have separate quality control operations. The first quality control operation is the Initial Housing Unit Follow-up Quality Control, which contains 15 percent of the Initial Housing Unit Follow-up workload. The second quality control operation is the Final Housing Unit Follow-up Quality Control, which contains 15 percent of the Final Housing Unit Follow-up workload. These operations are implemented to ensure that the work performed is of acceptable quality. PO 00000 Frm 00008 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 16001 II. Method of Collection The Housing Unit Follow-up and Housing Unit Follow-up Quality Control operations will be conducted through personal visits using paper questionnaires. Listers will receive work assignments grouped by geography and in close proximity to the lister’s residence whenever possible. The PES Initial Housing Unit Follow-up and Initial Housing Unit Follow-up Quality Control operations will occur May 6, 2020 through June 19, 2020. The PES Final Housing Unit Follow-up and Final Housing Unit Follow-up Quality Control operations will occur starting May 19, 2021 through June 18, 2021. A sample of approximately 180,000 housing units will be selected for the Initial Housing Unit Follow-up operation and approximately 8,000 housing units will be selected for the Final Housing Unit Follow-up operation. Housing Unit Follow-up listers are expected to knock on every door that requires additional information over several spaced visits in their assigned BCUs to try to find a resident or proxy to ask about the units. The Initial Housing Unit Follow-up Quality Control operation will contain about 27,000 housing units and the Final Housing Unit Follow-up Quality Control operation will contain about 1,200 housing units. Definition of Terms Components of Census Coverage— The components of census coverage include correct enumerations, erroneous enumerations, whole-person imputations, and omissions. Correct enumerations are people or housing units that were correctly enumerated in the census. Erroneous enumerations are people or housing units that were enumerated in the census but should not have been. Examples of erroneous enumerations are duplicates, nonexistent housing units or people, and people or housing units that were enumerated in the wrong place. Omissions are people and housing units that were not enumerated in the census but should have been. Lastly, wholeperson imputations are census records for which all of the demographic characteristics were imputed. Many of these imputations represent people in housing units where we knew the household count but did not obtain sufficient information about the people residing at the housing unit. Net Coverage—Reflects the difference between the true population (which is estimated by the Post-Enumeration Survey) and the census count. If the census count was less than the actual E:\FR\FM\17APN1.SGM 17APN1 16002 Federal Register / Vol. 84, No. 74 / Wednesday, April 17, 2019 / Notices number of people or housing units in the population, then we say there was an undercount.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

I. Abstract

    As in previous censuses, the Post-Enumeration Survey (PES) for the 
2020 Census will be conducted to provide estimates of census net 
coverage and components of census coverage (such as correct 
enumerations, omissions, erroneous enumerations [including duplicates], 
and whole-person imputations) for housing units and people living in 
housing units for the United States and Puerto Rico, excluding remote 
Alaska. (See Definition of Terms.) Group quarters (such as college 
dormitories and correctional facilities) are out of scope

[[Page 16001]]

because populations can change significantly between census enumeration 
and PES enumeration operations. Similarly, remote Alaska is out of 
scope for the PES because the seasonal nature of addresses and the 
population throughout the year make it infeasible to accurately conduct 
the matching and follow-up operations necessary for dual-system 
estimation. For this reason, the Census Bureau's past post-enumeration 
surveys have never included remote Alaska. These coverage estimates 
provide insight into the quality and coverage of census results and 
operations. As in the past, including in the 2010 Census Coverage 
Measurement program, the 2020 PES operations and activities must be 
conducted separate from, and independent of, the other 2020 Census 
operations.
    The 2020 PES will use the dual-system estimation procedure, which 
depends on two independent systems of measurement. The independence 
between the PES and census operations is a fundamental necessity for 
dual-system estimation. The PES will comprise two independent 
enumerations of housing units and the household population within the 
same sample areas. These two enumerations are called the enumeration 
sample (E sample) and the population sample (P sample). The primary 
sampling unit is the basic collection unit (BCU), which is the smallest 
unit of collection geography for 2020 Census operations. The E sample 
contains the list of housing units and people enumerated in the 2020 
Census within a sample of BCUs. The P sample contains housing units and 
people in the sample set of sample BCUs, but obtained independently 
from the census. The independent roster of housing units is obtained 
during the PES Independent Listing, while the independent roster of 
people is obtained during the PES Person Interview. The P sample 
housing units and people will be matched to all census housing units in 
the sample BCUs and surrounding BCUs.
    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 from scratch. Following the completion of listing for 
each BCU, the addresses are computer and clerically matched in the 
Initial Housing Unit Matching operation. Addresses that remain 
unmatched or have unresolved address status after matching will be sent 
to the Initial Housing Unit Follow-up operation, during which listers 
collect additional information that might allow a resolution of any 
differences between the Independent Listing and the preliminary census 
address list results. Matching to a preliminary census file of housing 
units allows the PES to conduct person interviews close to census day 
(April 1, 2020), rather than waiting until the final census list is 
available. In the Final Housing Unit Matching operation addresses 
collected in the Independent Listing operation are matched to the final 
census list of housing units. The Initial Housing Unit Follow-up field 
operation seeks to answer questions needed to resolve the match or 
enumeration status of addresses identified in the Initial Housing Unit 
matching operation, while the Final Housing Unit Follow-up field 
operation seeks to answer similar questions identified in the Final 
Housing Unit matching operation. A Federal Register Notice has been 
issued for the PES Independent Listing operation (Federal Register 
Notice Vol. 83 FR 53849, pages 53849-53850). Federal Register Notices 
for the Person Interview and Person Follow-up operations will be issued 
at a later date.
    Addresses identified for both Initial and Final Housing Unit 
Follow-ups will generally need additional information to determine 
housing unit status (for example, to clarify if the addresses refer to 
a housing unit or commercial building and to identify duplicate 
addresses) or to resolve inconsistencies between the PES and census 
addresses. Using paper questionnaires tailored to capture information 
needed to resolve each specific status question or discrepancy, listers 
will contact a member of each housing unit and ask questions to resolve 
housing unit status or to clarify discrepancies. If the listers do not 
find anyone at home after several attempts, they will try to collect 
the information from a proxy or by observation as a last resort. 
Proxies are respondents who are not members of the household.
    The Initial and Final Housing Unit Follow-up operations will also 
have separate quality control operations. The first quality control 
operation is the Initial Housing Unit Follow-up Quality Control, which 
contains 15 percent of the Initial Housing Unit Follow-up workload. The 
second quality control operation is the Final Housing Unit Follow-up 
Quality Control, which contains 15 percent of the Final Housing Unit 
Follow-up workload. These operations are implemented to ensure that the 
work performed is of acceptable quality.

II. Method of Collection

    The Housing Unit Follow-up and Housing Unit Follow-up Quality 
Control operations will be conducted through personal visits using 
paper questionnaires. Listers will receive work assignments grouped by 
geography and in close proximity to the lister's residence whenever 
possible. The PES Initial Housing Unit Follow-up and Initial Housing 
Unit Follow-up Quality Control operations will occur May 6, 2020 
through June 19, 2020. The PES Final Housing Unit Follow-up and Final 
Housing Unit Follow-up Quality Control operations will occur starting 
May 19, 2021 through June 18, 2021.
    A sample of approximately 180,000 housing units will be selected 
for the Initial Housing Unit Follow-up operation and approximately 
8,000 housing units will be selected for the Final Housing Unit Follow-
up operation. Housing Unit Follow-up listers are expected to knock on 
every door that requires additional information over several spaced 
visits in their assigned BCUs to try to find a resident or proxy to ask 
about the units. The Initial Housing Unit Follow-up Quality Control 
operation will contain about 27,000 housing units and the Final Housing 
Unit Follow-up Quality Control operation will contain about 1,200 
housing units.

    Components of Census Coverage-- The components of census coverage 
include correct enumerations, erroneous enumerations, whole-person 
imputations, and omissions. Correct enumerations are people or housing 
units that were correctly enumerated in the census. Erroneous 
enumerations are people or housing units that were enumerated in the 
census but should not have been. Examples of erroneous enumerations are 
duplicates, nonexistent housing units or people, and people or housing 
units that were enumerated in the wrong place. Omissions are people and 
housing units that were not enumerated in the census but should have 
been. Lastly, whole-person imputations are census records for which all 
of the demographic characteristics were imputed. Many of these 
imputations represent people in housing units where we knew the 
household count but did not obtain sufficient information about the 
people residing at the housing unit.
    Net Coverage--Reflects the difference between the true population 
(which is estimated by the Post-Enumeration Survey) and the census 
count. If the census count was less than the actual
