FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:  THURSDAY, MARCH 1, 2001

Steering Committee Report Available; Recommends No Adjustment

**CENSUS BUREAU PRODUCT ANNOUNCEMENT**

The acting director of the U.S. Census Bureau, William G. Barron Jr., today released the findings and recommendations of the Executive Steering Committee for Accuracy and Coverage Evaluation Policy (ESCAP).

The ESCAP, a 12-member group of career Census Bureau professionals, determined that they could not conclude that the data for legislative redistricting collected during Census 2000 would be improved by adjustment through the statistical method known as sampling. Pursuant to Federal Register Notice 15 CFR, Part 101, the ESCAP prepared a written report in support of its recommendation which is available on the Internet at <http://www.census.gov/dmd/www/EscapRep.html>.
