Memorandum 2019.10
Component ID: #ti1832148753

This memorandum documents the various operational components covered in the Federally Affiliated Count Overseas operation. The Federally Affiliated Count Overseas operation obtains counts by home state of U.S. military and federal civilian employees stationed or assigned overseas and their dependents living with them overseas. "Overseas" is defined as anywhere outside of the 50 United States and the District of Columbia. Therefore, "overseas" includes all foreign countries and foreign territories, as well as the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico, the U.S. Virgin Islands, American Samoa, Guam, and the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands. Counts are obtained from administrative records and are used to allocate the federally affiliated population living overseas to a home state for the purpose of apportioning seats in the U.S. House of Representatives.
