Arguably, the Decennial Census is the single most important data collection effort the federal government undertakes. It is important not only for the data it provides directly, but also because it supports numerous other activities within the federal statistical system. For example, it is the basis for post-census population estimates, and it is the foundation for weighting virtually every government survey. Decennial Census data play a key role in our democratic form of government. Decennial Census data are used for reapportioning the seats in Congress and for drawing new election districts to meet the one-person one-vote requirements (Anderson and Fienberg 1999; Bryant and Dunn 1995). In addition, Census data are used in federal funding formulas that distribute more than $400 billion each year to states and localities (U.S. Senate 1992; Reamer 2010; Blumerman and Vidal 2009).Census data are often http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Population Research and Policy Review Springer Journals
