2020 Census Cost Drivers: Status of Research and Testing
Authors: Evan Moffett
The Congress has indicated, and the Census Bureau agrees, that the cost growth in the Decennial Census experienced over the last four 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 being done to realize these cost savings for the 2020 Census.
