Memorandum 2016.21: Adjustment of FY 2017 Test Scope

Memorandum 2016.21
Component ID: #ti1869164939

This memorandum documents the 2020 Census Program decision to move two field test operations out of fiscal year (FY) 2017 to mitigate program risk amidst funding uncertainty.

Component ID: #ti971173658

On October 18, the U.S. Census Bureau announced that it will stop plans to test field operations in Puerto Rico, the Standing Rock Reservation in North and South Dakota, and the Coleville Reservation and Off-Reservation Trust Land in Washington State in 2017. Instead, we will consider including these sites in our 2018 End-to-End Census Test.
