Number of Respondents: 1,500. Average Hours per Response: 5.2. Burden Hours: 7,800. Needs and Uses: Introduction The 2020 Post-Census Group Quarters Review (PCGQR) provides a mechanism for governmental units (GUs) to request a review of their official 2020 Census results, specifically those for the population in group quarters (GQs). Please note, the population counts for a census block or other geographic units below the state level may seem inaccurate due to disclosure avoidance measures the Census Bureau applies to the published data. Population counts at the block level have the most ‘‘noise’’ of any geographic level due to disclosure avoidance to protect against data disclosure. Additional information on disclosure avoidance is available at the following URL: https://www.census.gov/ programs-surveys/decennial-census/ PO 00000 Frm 00006 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 16167 decade/2020/planning-management/ process/disclosure-avoidance.html. The Census Bureau will accept 2020 PCGQR cases from tribal, state, and local governmental units from June 2022 through June 30, 2023. The eligible governmental units and geographies are the same as for the 2020 Census Count Question Resolution (CQR) Program <https://www.census.gov/programssurveys/decennial-census/decade/2020/ planning-management/evaluate/ cqr.html>. The Census Bureau will conduct the 2020 PCGQR case research by examining the 2020 Census records for the 2020 tabulation block(s) identified in the 2020 PCGQR case. All population counts are current as of April 1, 2020. Revised GQ population counts will be provided to the Census Bureau’s Population Estimates Program where they will be included in the baseline data used to produce upcoming annual population estimates. Corresponding changes to demographic characteristics will be incorporated into subsequent rounds of estimates. The estimates developed from the updated population base will also be used by the American Community Survey (ACS) and the Puerto Rico Community Survey (PRCS). After the new annual estimates are available to the public on the regularly scheduled release dates, certified group quarters population counts can be provided by request to the highest elected official of the governmental unit. No new 2020 Census information products will be created by the 2020 PCGQR. This includes no revisions to 2020 Census information products such as the counts delivered to the President for apportionment or the 2020 Census Public Law 94–171 Redistricting Data Files and Geographic Products. Once a resolution is determined for each case, the Census Bureau will respond to the governmental unit in writing with an official determination letter, even if the case is determined to be out of scope or if no corrections are warranted. The Census Bureau will attempt to respond to each inquiry within 90 days of receipt and complete all case research and resolution by no later than September 30, 2023. Eligible Participants and Geographies The Census Bureau will only accept cases from the eligible participants listed below or their designee. Details on how to designate someone else to submit on a government’s behalf will be explained further in the guides that will be posted on the 2020 PCGQR website.
