–A–
Charge of the Panel to Review the 2010 Census

[The Panel to Review the 2010 Census will] conduct a comprehensive evaluation of the statistical methods and operational procedures for the 2010 census. The panel will address, in particular, methods and procedures that may affect the completeness and quality of the census enumeration, including preparation of the Master Address File and associated spatial data, census operations affecting group quarters enumeration, housing unit enumeration, and completeness of census coverage, the Census Coverage Measurement Program’s field, matching, and estimation activities, use of technology, and management of the 2010 census. The panel will not only evaluate the 2010 census as such, but also draw lessons for design and planning for a more cost-effective 2020 census. The panel will issue a final report at the completion of a five-year study with its findings and recommendations and will issue one or more interim reports as needed to address particular topics for which it is important to provide an early assessment of 2010 operations and advice for 2020 census planning.
