Count Question Resolution Operation (CQR)

The Count Question Resolution (CQR) operation provides an opportunity for tribal, state, and local governmental units to request that the Census Bureau review their boundaries and/or housing counts by block to correct geographical errors.

The Census Bureau will accept 2020 CQR cases requesting a review of legal boundaries, a review of housing counts by 2020 census tabulation block, or a review of both. If the review process finds errors related to geographic boundaries or housing placement, then housing and population counts will be corrected and the revised counts will be redistributed to all affected governmental units. CQR only reviews data that was collected and processed during the census. It cannot collect new data or conduct a recount or review of group quarters population counts.

The deadline for case submissions from eligible tribal, state, and local governmental units is June 30, 2023.
