This ethnographic research study examined three Health-Related Group Quarters (HRGQ) facilities. Health-Related Group Quarters (HRGQ) populations include but are not limited to those residents who live in skilled nursing facilities, long term and in-patient end-oflife care. Residents typically have serious disabilities due to poor health status, dementia, mental illness, injuries or a history of developmental delay. Population turnover is rapid in these facilities, due to high rates of death, discharge, admission and re-admission, rehabilitation and short term respite care services. The multi-method approach taken included resident and facility observations, an analysis of the 2010 decennial census enumeration, alternative resident list creation, and postenumeration interviews of selected informants. The research questions were the following: 1) what resistance or blockage to access was experienced by outsiders gaining access?; 2) what were the resident characteristics and limitations?; 3) how often did transitions and turnover occur in the population?; 4) how was the census enumeration conducted, and what problems arose?; and 5) what is the potential for an accurate post-enumeration survey to determine Census Coverage Measurement (CCM) in HRGQ facilities?
