The Census Bureau today released a detailed report on 15 local census offices around the country showing that Census 2000 operations are on track. "Our review confirms our judgement that Census 2000 is a good census in these offices and across the nation," said Census Bureau Director Kenneth Prewitt.
The report was issued in response to a request from Rep. Dan Miller (R-Fla.), chairman of the House Subcommittee on the Census, in a press conference held July 25. Miller raised concerns about Census 2000 operations in these offices.
"All our indicators show we are on track to a good census in these and our other local census offices around the country," said Prewitt. "We have extensive quality assurance procedures to locate and correct any problems. We continue to apply these procedures across the nation, including the 15 profiled offices."
"We are convinced that all of our census work will be completed in a timely way," Prewitt added.
