Abstract

Census maps out strategy to count hardest-to-get residents

Annotation

In preparing for the gargantuan effort of counting every person in the USA on April 1, the Census Bureau has devised a database to analyze demographic factors proven to influence response rates. It has assigned a "hard-to-count" score down to the block level and mapped the results nationwide. Areas that have a higher hard-to-count score will be targeted with more of the bureau's marketing budget.
