Census Bureau to Release 2020 Census Data Quality Results
Census Bureau to Host Webinar and News Conference
FEB. 17, 2022 — The U.S. Census Bureau will release the first set of results from the 2020 Post-Enumeration Survey (PES) along with additional results from the 2020 Demographic Analysis (DA) estimates on March 10.
The first release of PES results will provide national estimates of population coverage overall and by demographic groups, such as race and Hispanic origin, as well as age groups and sex. Results from the DA estimates will include net coverage error estimates by single year of age and sex at the national level. Together, these results help evaluate the quality of the 2020 Census.
Estimates from the PES of population and housing unit coverage by state and by several census operations are scheduled for release in the summer.
Thursday, March 3
1 p.m. EST
The Census Bureau will conduct a webinar prior to the release of the results. The webinar will explain the purpose, methodologies and types of results that will be made available from the PES and DA.
Thursday, March 10
10 a.m. EST
The Census Bureau will host a virtual news conference to brief media on the release of the first results from the PES and accompanying DA estimates.
Both events will consist of a simultaneous audio conference and online presentation.
A live Q&A session with subject matter experts for media, stakeholders and partners will immediately follow the webinar and news conference. Accredited media members will be given priority for questions. Please dial in 15-30 minutes early to allow time for registration.
Both events will be recorded and available for viewing in the press kit. Transcripts will also be available.
