Census Bureau Announces Address Canvassing Operation Begins

Press Release Number CB17-143

AUG. 28, 2017 The U.S. Census Bureau today began the Address Canvassing operation for the 2018 End-to-End Census Test across three test sites.

The operation will use mobile technology to verify and update our housing unit address list and will allow the Census Bureau to test procedures in building its 2020 Census address list across a wide area of physical geography, housing structures and residence types. An updated address list will help ensure an accurate and complete count for the nation in 2020.

The operation will take place in Pierce County, Wash.; Providence County, R.I.; and the Bluefield-Beckley-Oak Hill, W.Va., area. Following the conclusion of address canvassing in the three sites in early October, the Census Bureau will continue conducting the 2018 End-to-End Census Test in Providence County. Field operations there will begin in March 2018.
