Census Bureau Announces 2018 End-to-End Census Test to Begin

Press Release Number CB17-115


July 11, 2017 — The U.S. Census Bureau announced today that the first part of the 2018 End-to-End Census Test will begin next month, as census takers take to the streets in three test sites to update local housing addresses.

The address canvassing operation will take place in Pierce County, Wash.; Providence County, R.I.; and the Bluefield-Beckley-Oak Hill, W.Va., area, and will allow the Census Bureau the opportunity to conduct the process of 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.

Following the conclusion of address canvassing operations in the three sites in early October, the Census Bureau will continue conducting the 2018 End-to-End Census Test in Providence County. Peak operations there will begin in March 2018.
