The U.S. Census Bureau released the first set of results from the 2020 Post-Enumeration Survey (PES) along with additional results from the 2020 Demographic Analysis (DA) estimates on March 10.
The first release of PES results provides national estimates of population coverage overall and by demographic groups, such as race and Hispanic origin, as well as age groups and sex. Results from the DA estimates includes net coverage error estimates by single year of age and sex at the national level. Together, these results help evaluate the quality of the 2020 Census.
Estimates from the PES of population and housing unit coverage by state and by several census operations are scheduled for release in the summer.
