Project details

Since 1950 the U.S. Bureau of the Census has conducted major studies to evaluate the net or gross omissions of persons from the decennial censuses through direct survey methods.  The 1980 Post Enumeration Program (PEP) is the most recent member of this series.  Typically, a sample survey of households has been used to provide the sample of persons for whom the existence of matching census enumerations is evaluated; in some instances, persons have been selected from list frames based on administrative records instead.
