Prior to the Census 2000, the Census Bureau used the programs listed below to make sure our address lists were as up to data as possible to ensure complete coverage of all housing units and to help define statistical geographic boundaries to provide meaningful data from the Census 2000.
This program offered all local governments the opportunity to review and update the census list of individual addresses for their community. Public Law 103-430 called for this review to be conducted by locally designated census liaisons who had to agree to maintain the confidentiality of the information on the census address list. The Census Bureau regional offices maintained contact with the liaisons and provided feedback on the handling of submitted corrections in accordance with Public Law 103-430.
This program provided Federally recognized American Indian Reservation officials and Alaska Native Regional Corporation officials the opportunity to review and report to the Census Bureau changes to their reservation or trust land and regional corporation boundaries as shown on census maps.
This program enabled local participants to delineate statistical areas, such as census tracts, block groups, census designated places, and census county divisions, following Census Bureau guidelines.
