Authors: Frank McPhillips, Laura Waggoner
The Congress has indicated that the cost growth in the Decennial Census experienced in previous decades cannot be sustained. Therefore, the Census Bureau has examined the major drivers of census costs, and is conducting research about changes to the census design and methods likely to produce significant cost savings. This presentation will provide status on the research and testing completed to date and the operational plan being implemented to realize these cost savings for the 2020 Census.
