Results from the 2020 Census Group Quarters Count Imputation

Written by:

The 2020 Census group quarters count imputation process was used to provide a population size for occupied group quarters that lacked a reported population size.

In the 2010 Census, all occupied group quarters had a reported population size; thus, no imputation of population size was needed for group quarters in the 2010 Census. Additionally, no plans to impute population size for group quarters were made during the decade leading up to the 2020 Census. After the 2020 Census data collection had ended and the group quarters response was being reviewed, occupied group quarterss without a population count were found. Thus, the Group Quarters Count Imputation Team was formed in December 2020 and charged with building a statistically sound procedure for imputing population counts for occupied group quarters without a population count.

This report documents the results of the 2020 Census Group Quarters count imputation process.
