This memorandum documents the various operational components covered in the Count Review Operation. The 2020 Census Count Review Operation enhances the accuracy of the 2020 Census through:

  • Implementing an efficient and equitable process to identify and incorporate housing units that are missing from the Census Master Address File.
  • Identifying and including or correcting large group quarters, such as college/university student housing, that are missing from the MAF or geographically misallocated.
  • Positioning unresolved cases for a smooth transition to the Count Question Resolution operation.
  • Evaluating census responses and subsequent data files at multiple levels of geography for reasonableness, and verifying that edits have been properly applied.
