The U.S. Census Bureau (Bureau) will spend at least $2 billion to enumerate households that did not return census forms during the 2010 Census. Increasing the response rate would reduce the number of households that Bureau field staff must visit. To address concerns about reducing the cost of enumerating these households, this report: (1) analyzed how the Bureau develops, supports, and updates the response rate estimate, and the extent to which the Bureau uses the estimate to inform its 2010 planning efforts; (2) described the methods the Bureau considered for increasing response and how it te

The Census Bureau has insufficient policies and procedures and inadequately trained staff for conducting high-quality cost estimation for the decennial census.
