census.gov is #shutdown but you can read about Census 2010 research

The Census Bureau website is down with the government shutdown:

Census shutdown message

But, you can read all about some research based on the 2010 Census. Here is a sampling:

Misclassifying New York’s Hidden Units as Vacant in 2010: Lessons Gleaned for the 2020 Census
Joe Salvo and Peter Lobo | Population Research and Policy Review
August 6, 2013
This is a great article if you are interested in the details of the history of the Census Bureau’s master address file; how it gets created, corrected, updated, etc.

This piece traces the puzzling number of vacancies in two areas of New York City during the 2010 Census, which resulted in a lower census count than New York City had expected. It is a nice piece of detective work. As a reminder, Peter Lobo was a PSC trainee who I always quote as saying “I worked with Ren Farley at Michigan, and the time I spent there were some of the best years of my life.”

Quality and the 2010 Census
Hogan, Howard et.al. | Population Research and Policy Review
April 5, 2013
This is a nice summary of ways to evaluate census quality – 2 of the 5 authors are PSC trainees (Howard Hogan and Victoria Velkoff).

There is a companion press conference on the Census Bureau website, which will be linked to when the #shutdown is over.

The rest of the articles in this special issue devoted to the 2010 Census are here:
