Would you like to learn more about the Census Bureau's market research and analysis of printing and paper data capture technologies for the 2010 Decennial Response Integration System (DRIS)?
The Census Bureau has a contract with ADI, LLC, a research organization in Rochester, NY, to conduct market research and market analysis for the paper data capture component of the DRIS acquisition. The ADI Technology Laboratory is trying to better understand technologies that may apply to the 2010 Census paper questionnaire printing and data capture. Although printing of questionnaires except for testing purposes is out of scope for the DRIS contract, printing technology is of key interest since it affects data capture inputs and the quality of resulting data. Areas of specific interest to us include color scanning, electronic color drop-out, replacement mailing interfaces and implementation, printing, improved handprint and mark recognition, forms design, and data quality testing. Interested vendors are welcome to supply related equipment/technology for evaluation.
To obtain more information or to arrange a visit to the Lab for technical discussions, please contact Dr. Brad Paxton at 585-239-6057.
Would you like to learn more about the research being done on the Internet and Telephone applications planned for DRIS?
The Census Bureau has a similar research program underway for the Internet and telephone applications. Our research in this area will continue over the next two to three years. We have posted our initial findings from some early testing activities. You can access preliminary results on this website under Research Updates. We will post additional results as they become available.
