FEB. 23, 2021 — Today, the U.S. Census Bureau released a report authored by JASON titled, “Assessment of 2020 Census Data Quality Processes.” In this report, JASON (an independent scientific advisory group):
In order to aid the writing of this report, and to get the most useful recommendations possible, the Census Bureau briefed JASON in early January about a range of 2020 Census operations, including field data collection, schedule changes, software development and testing, administrative records usage, imputation, data quality indicators, and ongoing post-data collection processing activities. These processing activities will determine state population counts, apportionment, and redistricting, among other data points. The Census Bureau will continue to assist external specialists to independently review the operational aspects and quality metrics of the 2020 Census.
The Census Bureau is grateful for JASON’s timely proposals and is working to implement the proposed recommendations.
