About this Test

Component ID: #ti1887195196

The U.S. Census Bureau is researching modern and cost-efficient methods for the population to exercise its civic obligation to be counted in the 2020 Census.  Whether through the Internet, telephone, traditional paper questionnaires, or in-person visits, the Census Bureau is committed to making the mandatory once-a-decade headcount quick, easy, and safe for all to participate.

The 2016 Census Test allowed the Census Bureau to study a variety of new methods and advanced technologies that are under consideration for the 2020 Census.  The primary focus of the test was to refine the methodology for nonresponse follow-up — the operation conducted to personally visit households that do not respond to the census.  The Census Bureau also refined methods and related activities for maximizing self-response (particularly via the Internet) to the 2020 Census. Testing in two sites allowed us to learn more about managing new systems simultaneously in multiple locations.
