Media Advisory — Census Bureau to Host Webinar on 2010 Census Coverage Measurement Program
The U.S. Census Bureau will hold a webinar prior to the May 22 release of the 2010 Census Coverage Measurement results. The results to be released on May 22 will provide estimates of coverage of the census for the nation, major demographic groups, by key census operations and for states, large counties and places. In addition to estimates of net coverage, the Census Bureau will also release estimates of the components of census coverage, including erroneous enumerations and omissions. While the webinar will not release the results themselves, it will help explain the methodology behind this post-enumeration survey, why it is conducted and what types of estimates will be available on May 22. The coverage measurement results provide one way of analyzing the quality of the 2010 Census counts.
The event will consist of a simultaneous audio conference and online presentation. A question-and-answer session will follow the presentation. We suggest participants log in and call in early.
