Memorandum 2016.19
Component ID: #ti256272275

This memorandum documents the release of the 2020 Census Detailed Operational Plan for Geographic Programs Operation – Geographic Delineations Component. This document baselines the overall 2020 Census delineation process and provides specific details for the Geographic Delineations operation. It will be updated over time to reflect changes in strategies that result from census planning, research, and testing activities.

The Geographic Delineations program determines, delineates, and updates the geographic area boundaries to serve two purposes during the 2020 Census: data collection and data tabulation. The Census Bureau divides the nation into these geographies to manage 2020 Census field operations and tabulation activities.
