This report describes the results of cognitive testing on five new formats for presenting the residence instructions on the decennial short form mail questionnaire. These forms tested new approaches to improving coverage by presenting residence rules in more readable and understandable ways. The effort in this research was to explore new approaches to the presentation of these instructions, and not to test the exact wording intended as panels in the 2005 Content Test. It was anticipated that some of these approaches might not prove feasible in early testing, and that others would need revision and possible retesting in order to prepare them for use in the 2005 Content Test.
