The Census 2000 Testing, Experimentation, and Evaluation Program was coordinated by the Planning, Research, and Evaluation Division of the U.S. Census Bureau. All post-2000 programs will be coordinated by the Decennial Management Division of the U.S. Census Bureau. The program provides comprehensive information on Census 2000 evaluations, experiments and topic reports. It is designed to inform interested parties of Census 2000 results and inform 2010 Census planning.

Most Census 2000 Evaluation reports correspond to an appropriate topic report. The Census 2000 Evaluation reports assess the effectiveness of key operations, systems, and activities in order to evaluate Census 2000 and to facilitate planning for the 2010 Census, the American Community Survey, and the Master Address File/TIGER modernization.
Census 2000 Testing and Experimentation Reports and Corresponding Synthesis Reports
Census 2000 Testing and Experimentation Program consists of four experiments and several studies. For each experiment, there is a synthesis report that integrates individual or component analysis. The tests and experiments were conducted concurrently with Census 2000 because the decennial census environment provided the best conditions to learn about the value of new or different methodologies.
