Census Bureau Director Kenneth Prewitt will brief the news media on Census 2000 operations at 12:00 noon, EST, Wednesday, Feb. 2, at a local census office in Washington, D.C.
Topics will include the status of the census address list, which will be used for delivery of nearly 120 million questionnaires in March, and the recruitment of about half a million temporary census workers to follow up with as many as 46 million nonresponding housing units.
Prewitt also will provide updates on the status of enumeration in remote Alaska, the promotional "Census 2000 Road Tour," which begins in mid-February and the campaign to raise the response rate by 5 percentage points over the 1990 census.
A live webcast of the briefing will be carried on the Census Bureau's Web site <http://www.census.gov>. To view the webcast, you will need to first download RealPlayer 7 Basic. We strongly recommend downloading this software well in advance of viewing.
