Executive Summary

This report assesses the accuracy of the Census 2000 Dress Rehearsal results for Sacramento City, Menominee County, and the Columbia, South Carolina site. We examine the consistency of housing and population totals with independent benchmarks for each site. We assess the consistency of key demographic characteristics, such as persons per household, age/sex distributions, race/Hispanic origin distributions, vacancy rates, and group quarters population.

The dress rehearsal census results pass most tests of demographic consistency. For all three sites, the demographic characteristics examined agree with past census data and expected trends.
