2015 Census Tests

The Census Bureau conducted tests in 2015 that could significantly improve the upcoming 2020 Census. There were a number of tests planned, each with different goals and objectives.

The Address Validation Test enabled us to assess the performance of the methods and models that will help us develop the 2020 Census address list and develop workload models.  The 2015 Census Test conducted in Maricopa and Savannah allowed us to employ a variety of new methods and advanced technologies that are under consideration for the 2020 Census.  The final test in 2015 was the 2015 National Content Test, and this test aided us in obtaining a nationwide measure of response rates for Internet and self-response.
