Nonsampling Error: Although every effort (as described in the Data Processing section) is made in all phases of collection, processing, and tabulation to minimize errors, the survey is subject to nonsampling error such as the inability to obtain data for every variable for all units, inaccuracies in classification, mistakes in keying and coding, and coverage errors.
While the data records are ultimately from state government sources, the classification of finances among the different categories is entirely the responsibility of the Census Bureau. Therefore, classification might not reflect the actual classification or presentation as requested by the various state government respondents.
Response Distribution: The unit response rate of the 2012 Annual Survey of State Government Finances was 100 percent.
