The primary goal of the 2010 CCM program was to measure coverage error in the 2010 Census such that this information could be used to improve the coverage of future censuses. As a result, the scope of coverage measurement was broader and the emphasis was different than it had been in the past. Specifically, the 2010 CCM goals were to:

  1. produce measures of coverage error, including its components of omissions and erroneous enumerations;
  2. produce these measures of coverage error not only for demographic groups and geographic areas, but also for key census operations; and
  3. continue to provide measures of net coverage error.

2010 CCM Workshop

The U.S. Census Bureau conducted a 2010 Census Coverage Measurement (CCM) Workshop on January 12-13, 2009, in Washington, D.C. Invited experts in the field of coverage measurement attended along with Census Bureau coverage measurement staff. The purpose of the workshop was to review the estimation methodology the Census Bureau planned to use for the CCM program and obtain input on those plans.

The following documents were provided to all participants prior to the workshop.
