Census Bureau to Release 2020 Census Operational Plan
What: U.S. Census Bureau officials will release and discuss the operational plan for conducting the2020 Census during a live stream of the fall quarterly program management review for the public, key stakeholders and oversight bodies. Additionally, the Census Bureau will provide updates on other census topics, including 2015 National Content Test and 2016 Census Test activities.
The 2020 Census operational plan outlines key operations, the decisions made based on research and testing to date and a timeline for remaining decisions. The innovations planned for the 2020 Census will make it easier for people to respond and save taxpayers more than $5 billion over what it would cost using older methods.
The Census Bureau is releasing this plan five years prior to the 2020 Census — three years earlier than released for the last census. Through the smart use of technology and existing data sources, the 2020 Census can provide substantial taxpayer savings while maintaining a commitment to quality, accuracy and confidentiality.
Presenters will take questions from on-site audience members following completion of their remarks.
