The 2020 Census Count Review Operation (CRO) enhances the accuracy of the 2020 Census through:

  • Implementing an efficient and equitable process to identify and incorporate housing units (HUs) that are missing from the Census Master Address File (MAF).
  • Identifying and including or correcting large group quarters (GQs), such as college/university student housing, that are missing from the MAF or geographically misallocated.
  • Positioning unresolved cases for a smooth transition to the Count Question Resolution operation.
  • Evaluating census responses and subsequent data files at multiple levels of geography for reasonableness and verifying that edits have been properly applied.

Business Process Model

The purpose of this BPM is to describe the Census Operations business processes – activities, resources and key milestones.
