Using Existing Government Data Sources

Component ID: #ti1760438977


We want to test using existing government data sources such as United States Postal Service or records already provided to the government to identify households that are vacant or public lands such as military lands and national forests data and thereby reduce workload. We are developing methods to reduce costs of the Nonresponse Followup operation, while maintaining our commitment to the quality of the information collected, through the use of existing government data sources and an adaptive contact strategy for field work. We are researching the use of existing existing government data sources to identify (1) vacant housing units that could be enumerated without a visit and (2) occupied housing units that could be enumerated with fewer or no visits during a Nonresponse Followup operation. We are also researching ways to adapt the sequencing of cases requiring a visit and number of contact attempts made at households during field operations, based on information available before and during the data collection period.
