NCRN Meeting Spring 2016: A 2016 View of 2020 Census Quality, Costs, Benefits
Spencer, Bruce D.
Census costs affect data quality and data quality affects census benefits. Although measuring census data quality is difficult enough ex post, census planning requires it to be done well in advance. The topic of this talk is the prediction of the cost-quality curve, its uncertainty, and its relation to benefits from census data.
