Summary file 3 sf3
Summary File 3 (SF3)

  • Summary File 3 consists of 813 detailed tables of Census 2000 social, economic and housing characteristics compiled from a sample of approximately 19 million housing units (about 1 in 6 households) that received the Census 2000 long-form questionnaire. Fifty-one tables are repeated for nine major race and Hispanic or Latino groups: White alone; Black or African American alone; American Indian and Alaska Native alone; Asian alone; Native Hawaiian and Other Pacific Islander alone; Some other race alone; Two or more races; Hispanic or Latino; and White alone, not Hispanic or Latino.

  • Summary File 3 presents data for the United States, the 50 states, the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico in a hierarchical sequence down to the block group for many tabulations, but only to the census tract levels for others. Summaries are included for other geographic areas such as Zip Code Tabulation Areas (ZCTAsTM) and Congressional districts (106th Congress).

  • Summary File 3 includes 484 population tables and 329 housing tables that are identified according to geographic coverage

What changes are coming
What Changes are Coming?

  • American Community Survey (ACS)

    • Census Long Form Data – every year?

      • Demographics

      • Commuting

      • EEO

American Community Survey


Decennial census
Decennial Census

American Community Survey


ACS

  • The new survey will provide current demographic, socio-economic and housing information about America’s communities every year – information that until now was only available once a decade.

  • Starting in 2010, the ACS will replace the long-form census questionnaire that was sent to about 1-in-6 addresses in Census 2000. And as with the long form, information from the ACS will be used to administer federal and state programs and distribute more than $200 billion a year.

  • In 2005, a rolling, random sample of housing unit addresses throughout the United States and Puerto Rico began receiving the American Community Survey in the mail every month.

  • Starting in 2006, data will be available annually for all areas with populations of 65,000 or more. For smaller areas, it will take three to five years to accumulate a large enough sample to produce annual data. For example, areas of 20,000 to 65,000 can receive data averaged over three years. For rural areas, small urban neighborhoods or population groups of less than 20,000, it will take five years to accumulate a sample size comparable to the decennial census. These averages will be updated every succeeding year.

What s going on now
What’s Going on Now?

  • Preparation for the 2010 Census

    • To prepare for the 2010 Census, the Census Bureau will conduct a series of tests.

    • In late 2005, they will conduct the National Census Test (NCT).

2010 Census


2010 testing strategy
2010 Testing Strategy

  • 2003 National Census Test – Race/ethnicity and response options

  • 2004 Census Test – Field automation, coverage improvement, group quarters frame development

  • 2005 National Census Test – Content, language, questionnaire package design, response options

  • 2006 Census Test – More field automation, coverage improvement, language, group quarters, AIAN enumeration methods

  • 2008 Dress Rehearsal – all major systems, methods and procedures

2010 Census

Objectives

  • Improve reporting completeness and accuracy

  • Improve coverage accuracy

  • Enhance feasibility for targeted mailing of replacement questionnaires

  • Improve self response while maintaining data quality through the use of bilingual questionnaires

  • Reduce respondent and data capture errors

2010 Census


Scope methodology
Scope/Methodology

  • Mailout/Mailback

    • Approximately 420,000 households

  • Approximately 20 Questionnaire panels

  • Evaluation Followup Data Collection

2010 Census


Methodology
Methodology

  • Use of variations of proposed questionnaire content

  • Use of various methods to increase response, including:

    • Replacement questionnaire methods

    • Follow-ups

  • Use of the Internet as an optional mode for completing a census form

2010 Census


Methodology1
Methodology

  • Short form only

  • Each housing unit will receive:

    • An Advance Letter

    • A paper questionnaire, with a cover letter

    • A postcard (Reminder/Thank You)

2010 Census


Questionnaires panels
Questionnaires/Panels

  • The 2005 NCT consists of a data collection strategy involving a multi-part control panel and 19 experimental panels.

  • Each panel has been designed to test more than one experimental objective, so the number of treatments is not the same as the number of panels.

2010 Census


Questionnaires panels1
Questionnaires/Panels

  • What

    • Five experimental treatments (four control components and two experimental panels) are designed to identify the best strategy for increasing self-enumerated response

  • Why

    • To reduce data collection costs by reducing the Non-response Follow-up workload

    • To improve data quality for the 2010 Census

2010 Census


Questionnaires panels2
Questionnaires/Panels

  • What

    • Five panels will test various ways of presenting the Hispanic origin, race, and ancestry questions

  • Why

    • To design questions for the 2010 Census that will capture a more accurate picture of the American people

2010 Census


Questionnaires panels3
Questionnaires/Panels

  • What

    • Eleven panels will test at least one or more of the following objectives:

      • The Internet as an optional mode

      • Language

      • Population (Age/Date of Birth/Relationship/Tenure)

      • Space saving options

  • Why

    • To reduce the unduplication workload

    • To reduce the Non-response Follow-up workload

    • To reduce the number of geocoding corrections
