The U.S. Census Bureau’s 2020 Census Operational Plan documents the current design for conducting the 2020 Census. As the initial version of an emerging concept of operations, it reflects and supports evidence-based decision making by describing design concepts and their rationale, identifying decisions still to be made, and describing significant issues and risks related to the implementation of the Operational Plan.

The detailed operational plans complement the 2020 Census Operational Plan, presenting the detailed operational design for each operation, including a summary of the operational processes involved, their inputs, outputs and controls, and the basic mechanisms employed to conduct the operational work.

These documents will be updated over time to reflect changes in strategies that result from 2020 Census planning, research, and testing activities.
