THANK YOU, ALLISON. THE FIRST PRESENTATION TODAY IS ON COMMUNITY PARTNERSHIP AND
ENGAGE MANY PROGRAM AND WILL BE BE AN EVERY VIEW.
AN OVERVIEW.
>>GOOD MORNING. I’M FROM THE SOUTH TOO.
I EXPECT A RESPONSE. I’M DALE KELLY, CHIEF OF THE
FILL DIVISION AND RESPONSIBLE ACKNOWLEDGE THE FILL DIVISION OF
THE DECENNIAL CONSENSUS. I ALSO WANT TO THANK THE SUBJECT
MATTER EXPERTS IN THE ROOM. I AM GOING TO TALK TO YOU ABOUT
OUR COMMUNITY PARTNERSHIP AND ENGAGEMENT PROGRAM.
THE ACRONYM ALSO KNOWN AS CPEP.
YESTERDAY WE HAD UPGRADES ON THE INTEGRATED PARTNERSHIP AND
COMMUNICATIONS PLAN. THEY MENTION THE COLLABORATION
BETWEEN LOCAL AND NATIONAL PARTNERSHIPS AND HOW WE’RE
BRINGING AWARENESS TO THE CENSUS.
MR. FON TENOT DESCRIBED HOW WE’LL
PROVIDE EVERY PERSON IN THE NATION AN OPPORTUNITY TO BE
COUNT. OUR SPECIALISTS ARE ON THE
GROUND CONNECTIONS WITH THE TRUSTED VOICES IN THE COMMUNITY
THAT WILL MAKE THIS HAPPEN AND THAT WILL WORK ACKNOWLEDGE
PEOPLE UNLIKELY TO RESPOND TO THE CENSUS.
SO THE ROLE OF OUR PARTNERSHIP SPECIALISTS AND MEETING THE
PRIMARY GOAL OF THE COMPLETE AND ACCURATE COUNT OF THE POPULATION
AND HOUSING IS TO EDUCATE, ENCOURAGE AND ENGAGE.
WE NEED PEOPLE TO UNDERSTAND WHY IT’S IMPORTANT AND THE BENEFITS
TO RESPONDING TO THE CENSUS. AND THROUGH OUR SPECIALISTS, WE
ENCOURAGE PARTNERS TO MOTIVATE IN THEIR COMMUNITY TO
SELF-RESPOND. HOWEVER, IF SELF-RESPONSE IS NOT
THE FIRST CHOICE, THEY FOSTER THE RELATIONSHIPS WITH OUR
ENUMERATORS. WE ARE ENGAGING GRASSROOTS
ORGANIZATIONS TO REACH GROUPS WHO WE CONSIDER HARD TO LOCATE,
HARD TO CONTACT, HARD TO PERSUADE AND HARD TO INTERVIEW.
WE HAVE BUILT RELATIONSHIPS WITH COMMUNITY-FAITH BASED AND
ORGANIZATIONS AN OTHERS TO INCREASE AWARENESS AND PARTICIPATION.
THIS IS NOT AN EXHAUSTIVE LIST OF ORGANIZATIONS WE CONSIDER AND
THE VOICES WE DEPEND ON TO REACH POPULATIONS WITH HISTORICALLY
LOW RESPONSE RATES. OUR STATE AND LOCAL OFFICIALS
ARE CERTAINLY IMPORTANT TO THIS EFFORT.
AS MENTIONED YESTERDAY, THERE ARE CURRENTLY 46 STATE LEVEL AND
OVER 1500 LOCAL COMPLETE COUNT COUNTIES.
WE ALSO RELY ON OUR ORGANIC ORGANIZATIONS.
THE INDIVIDUALS AND FAMILIES INTERFACE WITH ON A DAILY BASIS
TO USE THEIR INFLUENCE TO INCREASE AWARENESS AND
PARTICIPATION IN THE 2020 CENSUS.
AND WE KEEP CONNECTIONS THROUGH OUR ORGANIZATIONS WITH OUR
CUSTOMER RELATIONSHIP MANAGEMENT SYSTEM OR C.R.M. TO REPORT
ACTIVITIES OF CURRENT AND FUTURE PARTNER.
WE ALSO USE THIS TO GENERATE REPORTS ON STATUS OF ACTIVITIES OF PARTNER ORGANIZATIONS WITH
THE CENSUS. THE INTEGRATION OF THE COMMUNITY
AND IT ENSURES CONSISTENT MESSAGING ABOUT THE 2020 CENSUS
REGARDLESS OF WHICH PROGRAM IT IS COMING FROM.
MOST IMPORTANT IS WE DELIVER THE RIGHT MESSAGE TO THE RIGHT
AUDIENCES AT THE RIGHT TIME.
WE ARE TAKING ADVANTAGE OF PRINT AND DIGITAL MEDIA TO DISSEMINATE OUR MESSAGE.
WE RELY ON OUR SPECIALISTS AND PARTNER TO CONVEY THE 2020
CENSUS IS CONFIDENTIAL AND IT’S IMPORTANT.
THEY SUPPORT CENSUS IN SO MANY WAYS FROM BEING THE TRUSTED
VOICE AND COMMUNICATOR TO VOLUNTEERING OR INVITING CENSUS
HEADQUARTERS BACK TO VOLUNTEER AT EVENT TO GET THE MESSAGE OUT
ABOUT THE OPPORTUNITY TO BE A PART OF THIS MASSIVE
UNDERTAKING. THEY PROVIDE INFORMATION ON
AVAILABLE JOBS. WHEN WE HIRE PEOPLE WE INTEREST
TO TRAIN THEM AND WE NEED SPACE TO CONDUCT THESE TRAININGS.
IT IS OUR PARTNER WILLING TO DONATE SPACE WITHIN THEIR
COMMUNITIES SUCH AS THEIR CHURCHES, SCHOOLS OR CIVIC
CENTERS AND OTHERS AND WE’RE NOT ASKING OUR PARTNER TO CREATE NEW
WAYS TO SUPPORT THE CENSUS, WE’RE SIMPLY ASKING THEM TO USE
WHAT THEY ALREADY HAVE IN PLACE. FOR EXAMPLE, IF AN ORGANIZATION
HAS A NEWSLETTER OR A BLOG OR WEBSITE, WE’RE ASKING THEM TO
CARRY THAT MESSAGE ABOUT CENSUS.
DEF WHEN IT COMES TO RECRUITING AND
HIRING IT HAS TO BE REPRESENTATIVE OF THE PEOPLE OF
THE NATION AND WE WANT ENUMERATORS COMFORTABLE IN WHICH
THE NEIGHBORHOODS THEY WORK AND LIVE.
OUR LOCAL PARTNER ARE THE SUBJECT MATTER EXPERTS TO
PROVIDE INPUT AND INPUT AND ADVICE ON PREFERRED MESSAGING
AND ENUMERATION METHODS. THE CENSUS BUREAU PARTNERSHIP
PROGRAMS INCLUDES STAFF THAT WILL ENGAGE MORE THAN 300,000
NATIONAL AND LOCAL PARTNER. IN 2010 OUR GOAL WAS 789
PARTNERSHIP SPECIALISTS. ACKNOWLEDGE 2020
ACKNOWLEDGE 2020 WE KNOW HOW IMPORTANT IT IS TO
CONNECT WITH PEOPLE AS SOON AS POSSIBLE.
THIS SAY SNAPSHOT OF OUR INTERACTIVE MAPPING IT IS
ANOTHER TOOL THAT WE USE FOR EFFECTIVEAS POSSIBLE.
THIS SAY SNAPSHOT OF OUR INTERACTIVE MAPPING IT IS
ANOTHER TOOL THAT WE USE FOR EFFECTIVESOON AS POSSIBLE.
THIS SAY SNAPSHOT OF OUR INTERACTIVE MAPPING IT IS
ANOTHER TOOL THAT WE USE FOR EFFECTIVE COMMUNICATION AND WE
USE IT TO IDENTIFY HARD TO SERVICE AREAS USING 2012 AND
2016 AMERICAN COMMUNITY SURVEY DATA.
THIS TOOL IS AVAILABLE TO OUR SPECIALISTS.
IT’S AVAILABLE TO OUR PARTNER AND THE PUBLIC FOR ACCESS ABOUT
AREAS ACROSS THE NATION THAT TRADITIONALLY HAVE LOW RESPONSE SCORES.
IT LETS US KNOW WHERE SPECIAL AREAS ARE NEEDED FOR AREAS WITH
LANGUAGE BARRIERS OR POVERTY LEVELS OR WHERE RESIDENTS ARE
DISPLACED DUE TO NATURAL DISASTERS.
THIS IS ANOTHER SNAPSHOT OF THE TOOL.
IT SHOWS IN THIS PARTICULAR SLIDE IT SHOWS WHERE LOCAL
PARTNERSHIP SPECIALISTS NEED TO FOCUS THEIR EFFORTS WITHIN THE
REGION TO DEVELOP OUTREACH AND WORK WITH LOCAL PARTNER TO
INCREASE AWARENESS AND PARTICIPATION.
THEY HAVE ACCESS AND SPECIALIST AND PARTNERS HAVE THIS
INFORMATION IN ADVANCE TO MAKE DECISIONS.
IT’S CRITICAL FOR OUR PLANNING OF A DISTRIBUTION OF STAFF.
WE KNOW WHERE PARTNERSHIP SPECIALISTS ARE NEEDED BY USING
THIS TOOL. AS I MENTIONED, IT’S AVAILABLE
TO THE PUBLIC. I’LL GIVE YOU THE WEBSITE ON A SUBSEQUENT SLIDE.
I’LL ASK. WE KNOW IT WILL TAKE THE ENTIRE
COUNTRY TO ACTIVELY SUPPORT AN ACCURATE 2020 CENSUS COUNT BY
BECOMING A PARTNER IN A GRASSROOTS ORGANIZATION.
OUR PUBLIC BECOMES A MEMBER OF DIVERSE GROUP OF 2020 CENSUS
PARTNER AND PART OF A NETWORK PART OF LOCAL ORGANIZATIONS THAT
HAVE PERSONAL LIVE ACCESS TO CENSUS DATA TO ASSIST IN
ACCURATE REPRESENTATION FOR THEIR COMMUNITY.
AND THE ASK OF OUR PARTNERS IS THEY ASK EVERYONE TO
SELF-RESPOND AT THE BEGINNING OF A PEAK OPERATION AND WE HAVE 500,000 TEMPORARY JOBS AVAILABLE NEXT SPRING.
I’LL FAST FORWARD THROUGH THIS SLIDE BECAUSE MARIA WENT THROUGH
THE VERSION YESTERDAY AS WELL AS THE INFORMATION ON THE RELEASE
OF THE WEBSITE. I WANT TO TALK ABOUT OUR
PARTNERSHIP PORTAL. IT IS ANOTHER TOOL THAT IS
AVAILABLE TO LINK RESOURCES AND IT PROVIDES A TOOL KIT WITH
SUGGESTIONS ON HOW TO BEGIN TAILORING OUTREACH EFFORTS.
IT PROVIDES A LIST OF SUGGESTED ACTION ITEMS ON HOW TO SPREAD
THE WORD AND AN ONLINE SIGNUP FORM TO JOIN THE EFFORT.
AND WE ALSO PROVIDE ACCESS TO DATA DISSEMINATION SPECIALISTS
THROUGH WORKSHOPS AND YOU’LL SEE THE PHONE NUMBER LISTED ON THE BOTTOM OF THE SLIDE.
I THINK I STAYED WITHIN MY TIME AND WE’RE TRYING TO CONNECT WITH
AS MANY ORGANIZATIONS AS POSSIBLE FOR THE HARD TO COUNT
COMMUNITIES. I WANT TO THANK YOU FOR YOUR
TIME AND APPRECIATE ANY SUGGESTIONS OF ORGANIZATIONS
THAT WOULD BE INTERESTED IN BECOME PARTNER OR THE CENSUS
BUREAU SHOULD ENGAGE WITH IN THE LOCAL AND
REGIONAL LEVEL. WITH THAT I WANT TO TURN THE
FLOOR OVER TO JESSICA.
THANK YOU. FOLKS WERE TALKING YESTERDAY AND
WOULD APPRECIATE A PAINTING OF THE PICTURE OF WHO SOME OF THE
LOCAL PARTNERSHIP SPECIALISTS ARE AND WHAT A DAY IN THE LIFE
OF A LOCAL PARTNERSHIP LOOKS LIKE OR WHAT A FOCUSSED AREA OF
AN INDIVIDUAL LOOKS LIKE TO UNDERSTAND THE SCOPE UNDER A
SINGLE PERSON SO YOU MIGHT BE ABLE TO —
>>WE HAVE SUBJECT MATTER EXPERTS IN THE ROOM.
A DAY IN THE LIFE OF A SPECIALIST, GOOD QUESTION AND
THANK YOU FOR THAT. SO AS WE SEE IT, SO AS WE SEE IT THIS SAY PERSON
OUT IN THE COMMUNITY MAKING CONNECTIONS.
I’LL GIVE AN EXAMPLE. IN THIS COMMUNITY, SOME OF THE
LOCAL CHURCHES BECAUSE WE KNOW PERHAPS THOSE CHURCH MEMBERS OR
THAT PASTOR OF THAT CHURCH IS MAKE THE CONNECTION IN THE
COMMUNITY WE WANT TO CONNECT WITH ANY ORGANIZATION THAT
COMMUNICATES WITH PEOPLE IN THE COMMUNITY TO TALK WITH THE
IMPORTANCE CENSUS AND WHY IT’S A BENEFIT TO RESPOND TO THE CENSUS
OR PARTICIPATE.
SPECIFIC IN THE DAY IN THE LINE, JAIME, I’LL LOOK TO YOU BECAUSE
YOU HAVE THE EXPERIENCE OF GOING OUT AND BEING PART OF THAT
ORGANIZATION.>>GOOD MORNING.
I’M JAMIE CHRISTY LAST CONSENSUS I WAS THE REGIONAL DIRECTOR FOR
SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA. HARD TO ANSWER YOUR QUESTION
DIRECTLY BECAUSE THE SPECIALIST AS DIVERSE AS THE COUNTRY IS. WE WOULD HAVE UNIQUE AREAS OF
FOCUS. WE HAVE SPECIALISTS IN THE STATE
OF HAWAI’I AND THERE WOULD BE EFFORT TO WORK WITH THE
POPULATION LIVING IN HAWAI’I.
THEY WOULD SPEND DAYS GOING TO SPECIFIC ORGANIZATIONS.
IN SOME WAYS IT WAS A SALE PITCH AND WOULD TRY TO SELL THE CENSUS
AND ENGAGE THEM AND FIND OUT EVENTS THEY HAVE SCHEDULED,
ALIGN RESOURCES WE WOULD HAVE LIKE MAYBE THINGS WE COULD PASS
OUT AT FESTIVALS OR FAIRS AND SHE WOULD BE THE VOICE
FOR THAT COMMUNITY. MAYBE LATER SHE’D WORK WITH THE
ORGANIZATIONS THERE AND THE NEXT DAY SHE MAY WORK WITH THE MAYOR
OF HAWAI’I OR HONOLULU ON EVENTS THE CITY WAS PUTTING ON.
IN HER INSTANTS IT WAS FOCUSSED ON A UNIQUE POPULATION. OTHERS HAD WORK ON THE
GOVERNMENT. IN LOS ANGELES COUNTY WE’D HAVE
A LIAISON AND BRIEF DEPARTMENT REPS ON THE CENSUS TIME LINE AND
THE HIRING GOALS AND SPECIFIC AREAS OF FOCUS AND THE AVENUES
THE CITY HAS TO COMMUNICATE WITH RESIDENTS OR COUNTY HAD TO
COMMUNICATE WITH PEOPLE IN UNINCORPORATED AREAS.
THE PARTNERSHIP PROGRAM IS AS DIVERSE AS THE POPULATION IS.
WHAT’S UNIQUE IS WHAT DALE REFERENCES IN TERMS OF THE AREA
FOCUS. IT ISN’T UNIVERSAL.
IT’S FOCUSSED ON SPECIFIC AREAS. USUALLY DEFINED BY GEOGRAPHY AND
SOMETIMES DEFINED BY CHARACTERISTICS MUCH A
POPULATION. WE SHORT OF REFINED OUR FOCUS
THERE. DOES THAT HELP?
>>YEAH, THANK YOU SO MUCH.
>>ANY SUGGESTIONS IN ORGANIZATION WOULD BE A PARTNER
OR THE CENSUS SHOULD ENGAGE WITH AT THE LOCAL AND REGIONAL LEVEL.
FROM MY BACKGROUND AS AN OPPORTUNITY OR I’M CURIOUS IF
THIS IS AN AREA OF FOCUS THATTED TOO OUT TO ME AND THIS IS LESS
GEOGRAPHIC AND MORE ABOUT PARTICULAR POPULATIONS OR
CHARACTERISTICS BUT PEOPLE IMPACTED BY OUR CRIMINAL JUSTICE
SYSTEM AND IN KORS RATED COULD BE — INCARCERATED COULD BE
GREAT ADVOCATES FOR PARTICIPATION.
THEY’RE OFTEN FAMILIAR WITH HOW THE CENSUS COUNTS THOSE PEOPLE
AND ALLOCATION AND OFTEN INTERESTED IN ADVOCATING FOR
ADJACENT TOPICS SUCH AS THE RESTORATION OF VOTING RIGHTS.
SPECIALISTS WHO KNOW HOW TO TAP INTO THAT EXISTING ENGAGEMENTS
TO ENCOURAGE NOT JUST DIRECTLY AFFECTED PEOPLE BUT THE PEOPLE
AROUND THEM AND THEIR COMMUNITIES TO ENGAGE COULD BE
AN INTERESTING AVENUE TO EXPLORE.
AND THERE’S EXAMPLES OF THIS. TRANSITIONING HOUSES ARE OFTEN
ALREADY PARTICIPATING IN THESE COMMUNITY PARTNERSHIPS.
FOR EXAMPLE, THEY’RE OFTEN FUNCTIONING AS POLLING STATION.
AND THERE IS A POINT FOR THE CONVERSATIONS AND EVEN PRISON
NEWSPAPERS. I LIVE IN CALIFORNIA IN THE BAY
AREA AND SPEND A LOT OF TIME AT SAN QUENTON AND THE NEWSPAPER
REACHES 13,000 PEOPLE IN THE CDCR.
BY EXTENSION, THEY’RE COMMUNITY, FRIENDS AND FAMILY.
JUST A THOUGHT, FOR EXAMPLE, A GROUP OF PEOPLE WHO MIGHT BE
ESPECIALLY INTERESTED IN THIS AND HAVE THE ABILITY TO ACTIVATE THEIR COMMUNITIES.
AND ONE FOLLOW-UP QUESTION FRAMED IN A COUPLE WAYS AND
CURIOUS HOW CPEP MEASURES THE EFFECTIVENESS OF PARTNERSHIP SPECIALISTS AND HOW YOU ATTEMPT
TO DETERMINE ATTRIBUTION FOR HOW THEY TRANSLATE TO PARTICIPATION
AND I FRAMED IT IN A COUPLE WAYS IN THE SLIDES.
THERE’S A COUPLE WAYS TO GET AT THE INTENT OF THE QUESTION BUT I
WANTED TO OFFER THAT FOR DISCUSSION.
>>THANK YOU, I APPRECIATE THAT QUESTION.
SO WE HAVE FOUR MEASURABLE OBJECTIVES THAT WE PUT IN PLACE FOR THE CPEP PROGRAM
AND WE EXPECT TO REACH OUT TO 300,000 NATIONAL AND CPEP AND
WE’RE PLANNING TO REACH OUT TO OR FORM 300,000 PARTNERSHIPS BY
MARCH OF 2020. THE OTHER IS WE ARE ESTABLISHING
PARTNERSHIPS WITH AT LEAST ONE ORGANIZATION AND THOSE THAT
REACH DIRECTLY FROM OUR OBJECTIVES THAT SERVE IN ALL
TRACT A LOW RESPONSE SCORE OF 30 OR 9% OF ALL CENSUS TRACKS AND TRACT A
LOW RESPONSE SCORE BETWEEN 20 AND 30.
THIS IS INFORMATION WE GET FROM THE ROAM WITH WE CAN IDENTIFIED
WHERE WE NEED TO PUT OUR PARTNERSHIP SPECIALISTS OR HAVE
TO FOCUS ON WITH THE LOW RESPONSE RATE.
WE HAVE THE INFORMATION IN ADVANCE.
WE CAN MOVE THEM AS NEEDED. THE OTHER OBJECTIVE IS TO
FACILITATE THE FORMATION OF THE COMPLETE COUNT COMMITTEES AND
SIMILAR EFFORTS IN ALL 50 STATES INCLUDING THE DISTRICT OF
COLOMBIA, PUERTO RICO AND CITIES WITH A POPULATION OF 200,000 BY
JANUARY OF 2020. WE HAVE AT LEAST 46 STATE LEVEL
AND OVER 1500 COMPLETE COUNT COUNTIES.
AND THEN THE LAST IS TO PROVIDE SUPPLEMENTAL LANGUAGE SUPPORT
FOR OVER 100 LANGUAGES DIRECTLY OVER VIA THE ESTABLISHED PARTNERSHIPS.
I HOPE THAT GETS TO YOUR ANSWER.
I DEFINITELY UNDERSTAND THE OBJECTIVES.
I’M INTERESTED TO WHAT EXTENT YOU CAN THREAD THAT THROUGH
ACTUAL CENSUS COMPLETION. THAT’S HARD TO DO OR INTEGRATED
ACROSS A BUNCH OF DIFFERENT ORGANIZATIONS.
THAT WOULD THE HEART OF THE QUESTION.
IT’S FRAMED IN A COUPLE OTHER WAYS IN THE SLIDE.
DO WE HAVE A WAY OF ONE WAY TO THINK ABOUT IS
IF WE SPENT MORE MONEY ON MORE COMMUNITY PARTNERS WOULD THAT
TRANSLATE TO HIGHER CENSUS COMPLETION RATES AND WHAT ARE
THE THINGS WE’RE TRACKING THAT TRANSLATE TO CENSUS COMPLETION?
>>WHEN YOU SAID COMMUNITY PARTNER ARE YOU TALKING ABOUT
PARTNERSHIP SPECIALISTS?>>NOT THE 300,000.
THAT WOULD BE HARD TO DO.>>WE KNOW IN 2018 WE DIDN’T
HAVE PARTNERSHIP SPECIALISTS ON THE GROUND AND IT MAKES A
DIFFERENCE. WE THINK IF WE DON’T HAVE PEOPLE
IN THESE COMMUNITIES AND CARRYING THAT MESSAGE THERE IS
GOING TO BE LESS AWARENESS OF THAT.
I DON’T KNOW IF THERE’S SOMETHING ELSE ANYONE ELSE WOULD
LIKE TO ADD. YOU’RE RIGHT IT’S A HARD PROBLEM
BECAUSE WE’RE HITTING THEM WITH ADVERTISING AND WE’RE HITTING
THEM WITH OTHER KINDS OF MOTIVATION.
I THINK WHAT YOU’RE ASKING IS DO PARTNERSHIP SPECIALISTS WORK AND
HOW DO WE KNOW IT WORKS AND DOES IT GET SOMEBODY TO ANSWER THE
CENSUS QUESTION. WE HAVE ACTUALLY IN PREVIOUS
CENSUSS HAVE DONE RESEARCH — CENSUS WE HAVE DONE RESEARCH IN
PARTNERSHIP WITH PROGRAMS AND THE CONCLUSION WAS BROAD, YES,
IT’S EFFECTIVE. WE JUST CAN’T SAY HOW EFFECTIVE
IT WAS. IT’S HARD TO SAY.
AND TO THE SECOND WAY YOU PHRASED THAT, ARE SOME MORE EFFECTIVE THAN OTHERS?
CLEARLY THERE’S A DIFFERENCE IN RESULTS AMONG SPECIALISTS BUT IT
DEPENDS ON WHAT WE’RE ASKING THEM TO DO.
WE HAVE A COMMUNITY OF CAMBODIANS IN L.A. COUNTY AND
IT’S A SMALL COMMUNITY. THE SCOPE OF WHAT THAT
PARTNERSHIP SPECIALISTS WAS ASSIGNED TO DO WAS NARROW.
IT’S RIGHT OUTSIDE OF LONG BEACH.
THEY ONLY DID A HANDFUL EVENTS WITH A SMALL HANDFUL GROUP OF
PEOPLE BUT IF THEY DIDN’T DO ANYTHING WITH THOSE PEOPLE WE
PROBABLY WOULDN’T HAVE COUNTIED THE CAMBODIAN COMMUNITY.
SO WAS THAT AN EFFECTIVE OUTREACH FROM A DOLLARS AND
SENSE OUTREACH? PROBABLY NOT.
BUT FROM A DATA QUALITY PERSPECTIVE IT WAS HUGE AND INVALUABLE.
IT’S DIFFICULT TO ANSWER. EVERYONE UNDERSTANDS GRASSROOTS
AND ENGAGEMENT AND FACE TO FACE IS INVALUABLE FOR COMMUNITY INDICATED THEY WOULD
NOT RESPOND. WE’RE NOT ONLY LOOKING AT WHERE
THEY’RE ENGAGING BUT WHAT IS THE RESULT OF THAT ENGAGEMENT.
IT’S ONE THING TO BE A PARTNER. WE’RE ALSO TRIES TO ITEMIZE
THROUGH THE C.R.M. TOOL AND THE RESULTS OF THAT PARTNERSHIP AND
IN THE PAST WE TRIED TO ASSIGN A DOLLAR VALUE TO CALCULATE WA WE
WE — WHAT WE CALL VALUE-ADDED BUT DOLLARS AREN’T ALWAYS THE BEST MEASURE OF SUCCESS.A WE —
WHAT WE CALL VALUE-ADDED BUT DOLLARS AREN’T ALWAYS THE BEST
MEASURE OF SUCCESS.WE — WHAT WE CALL VALUE-ADDED BUT
DOLLARS AREN’T ALWAYS THE BEST MEASURE OF SUCCESS.E —
WHAT WE CALL VALUE-ADDED BUT DOLLARS AREN’T ALWAYS THE BEST
MEASURE OF SUCCESS. — WHAT WE CALL VALUE-ADDED BUT

WHAT WE CALL VALUE-ADDED BUT DOLLARS AREN’T ALWAYS THE BEST
MEASURE OF SUCCESS. WHAT WE CALL VALUE-ADDED BUT DOLLARS AREN’T
ALWAYS THE BEST MEASURE OF SUCCESS. WHAT WE CALL
VALUE-ADDED BUT DOLLARS AREN’T ALWAYS THE BEST MEASURE OF
SUCCESS.WHAT WE CALL VALUE-ADDED BUT DOLLARS AREN’T ALWAYS THE
BEST MEASURE OF SUCCESS.>>MY NAME IS CATHY PETIT.
I ORGANIZE A NETWORK OF COMMUNITY PARTNER THAT DO
SIMILAR WORK SO I KNOW THIS IS A VERY HARD JOB AND THEY HAVE
OBVIOUSLY A LOT OF AUTONOMY AND IS IT BETTER TO GO TO THIS OR
THAT MEETING. I’M WONDERING, TWO THINGS, ONE,
WHAT KIND OF TRAINING YOU’RE PROVIDING FOR THEM.
HOW DO YOU ONBOARD THEM OR ARE THEY GENERALLY PEOPLE WHO ARE
DATA DISSEMINATION SPECIALISTS AND SHIFTING OVER AND ALREADY
FAMILIAR AND WHAT KIND OF ONGOING PEER CONNECTIONS THEY
HAVE. THERE’S CAMBODIANS ALSO IN
HOUSTON SO MAYBE THEY CAN HELP EACH OTHER.
AND I ALSO THINK IN THOSE EXAMPLES YOU SAID THEY COULD SET
THEIR OWN GOALS. THAT’S A VERY SPECIAL QUESTION.
SO WHAT WAS THE UNDERCOUNT OF CAMBODIANS AND THE SELF-RESPONSE
SCORE AS TRACKED IN 2010 AND WHICH ONE IS IN 2010.
TO ENCOURAGE THEM TO THINK ABOUT WHAT THEIR OWN MEASUREMENTS
WOULD BE. 1500 IS A LOT BUT IT’S ALSO NOT
SO MUCH THAT YOU WOULD INCREASE. I’M WONDERING HOW TO SUPPORT
THESE FOLKS AS THEY’RE DOING THIS REALLY DIFFICULT JOB.
I’M SURE 1500 DOESN’T SOUND LIKE A LOT TO ME AND THEY HAVE A LOT
OF TERRITORY TO COVER AND A LOT OF DIFFERENT GROUPS SO THERE YOU
GO.>>THANK YOU, I APPRECIATE THE
QUESTION. SO IN TERMS OF THE TRAINING,
THEY GET TRAINING FROM THE HEADQUARTERS PERSPECTIVE AND THE
CPEP PROGRAM IS ONE I OVERSEE. WE HAVE A CPEP TEAM HERE IN
HEADQUARTERS THAT DEVELOPS TRAINING AND WE’RE COMMUNICATING
THAT ACROSS THE SIX REGIONS. THEY’RE ALSO CONNECTING WITH
EACH OTHER. WHAT I’M FINDING IS MANY OF
THESE PEOPLE ARE PARTNERSHIP SPECIALIST COMING BACK TO THE
CENSUS. THIS IS THEIR MULTIPLE TURN AT
DOING THIS AND THEY’RE VERY KNOWLEDGEABLE AND UNDERSTAND
WHAT THE JOB BRINGS BUT ALL THROUGH THE PROCESS WE ARE
GIVING THEM TRAINING AND PROVIDING TOOLS.
THEY ARE CONNECTING WITH EACH OTHER THROUGH THE SHIRT YOU’LL
CONFERENCE CALLS AND THINGS OF THAT COMMUNICATION STAYS OPEN
THROUGH THE CENSUS. YOU ALSO ASKED ABOUT THEM
SETTING THEIR OWN GOALS. WE CERTAINLY PROVIDE THEM WITH
OUR OBJECT ITCHES AND OUR GOALS — OBJECTIVES AND OUR GOALS AND
IT’S IN THE TRAINING AND UNDERSTANDING OF WHAT THOSE LOOK
LIKE. AND THE FACT THAT AS WE TALKED
ABOUT THE INTEGRATEDNESS OF THE NATIONAL AND COMMUNICATION PLAN
IKE. AND THE FACT THAT AS WE TALKED
ABOUT THE INTEGRATEDNESS OF THE NATIONAL AND COMMUNICATION PLAN
AND SO WE’RE CONSTANTLY COMMUNICATING THE MESSAGE TO
THEM. I’M NOT SURE I’M GETTING TO
THEIR POINT BUT AS FAR AS THE TRAINING WE CONTINUE TO DO THE
COMMUNICATIONS ACROSS THE REGION.
WE’RE CONSTANTLY MEETING AND HAVING THE CONVERSATIONS AND
TALKING ABOUT BEST PRACTICES AND WHAT’S WORKING HERE IN THIS
PARTICULAR COMMUNITY AND IF IT WOULD WORK.
I’VE BEEN PRESSED YOU’RE USING A GEOSPATIAL TOOL FOR YOUR
ANALYSIS WITH MY BACKGROUND THANK YOU FOR DOING THAT.
THIS MAY SEEM CRAZY BUT IT’S AN ACRONYM WITH THE TOOL THE ROAM,
THE ACRONYM IS KIND OF PASSIVE AND I WANT TO PUT OUT THAT MAYBE
A MORE ASSERTIVE ACRONYM, CALL IT ROAR, REACH OUT AND RECRUIT.
JUST A COMMENT. IT’S A GOOD TOOL AND WHEN I
THINK OF ROAM IT SEEMS LIKE IT’S ABOUT DIRECTION.
>>THANK YOU FOR THE COMMENT.>>THIS IS MARIO MARATZI.
THANK YOU FOR YOUR PRESENTATION. IT DOVETAILS AND COMPLEMENTS
WELL WITH THE PRESENTATION WE GOT YESTERDAY ON THE INTEGRATED
PARTNERSHIPS AND COMMUNICATION OPERATION.
SO I THINK WHAT YOU’RE DOING IS IMMENSELY IMPORTANT.
I HAVE BEEN ON THE OTHER SIDE OF THIS AS A PARTNER THAT SIGNS ON
WHEN I WORKED AT A LOCAL ORGANIZATION.
I BELIEVE ALL CENSUSS ARE LOCAL. SO WHAT YOU ARE DOING IS REALLY,
REALLY IMPORTANT. AND SOMETHING FROM WASHINGTON,
D.C. PERSPECTIVE WE CAN SOMETIMES FORGET.
ONE THING THAT’S DIFFERENT THIS TIME AROUND, THIS DECADE IS THE
WAY PEOPLE GET INFORMATION HAS DRAMATICALLY CHANGED,
INTENSIFIED THE FRAGMENTATION THROUGH WHICH THE CHANNELS OF
PEOPLE GET INFORMATION AND WE ALL KNOW THE SOCIAL MEDIA
REVOLUTION I’M REFERRING TO. MAYBE I’M WRONG BUT I THINK I
HEARD IN THE PREVIOUS PRESENTATION THAT THE BUREAU IS
HIRING ONE COMPANY THAT WILL BE MANAGING THE SOCIAL MEDIA FOR
THE 2020 CENSUS. THAT STRUCK ME AS PERHAPS ONE GOOD WAY OF
THINKING ABOUT IT AT THE BEGINNING AND PERHAPS SOMETHING
THAT THE CENSUS BUREAU SHOULD THINK MORE ABOUT.
AND I’M GOING TO TRY TO CONNECT THAT PRECISELY WITH THE LOCAL
PARTNERSHIP PROGRAM YOU ARE MENTIONING.
MY CONCERN IS BY HAVING ONE COMPANY AND AN ARMY OF LOCAL
PARTNERSHIP SPECIALISTS, WHAT IS THE ENGAGEMENT BETWEEN THE LOCAL
PARTNERSHIP SPECIALISTS AND THE COMPANY WORK THE SOCIAL MEDIA?
MY CONCERN IS THAT THIS MAY BE A MISSED OPPORTUNITY TO USE THE
LOCAL KNOWLEDGE OF PARTNERSHIP SPECIALISTS TO BE MORE EFFECTIVE
WITH THE MESSAGING AT THE LOCAL LEVEL.
THERE IS NOT A LOT OF INTERACTION BETWEEN THE ARMY OF
LOCAL PARTNERSHIP SPECIALISTS AND THE LOCAL MEDIA STRATEGY
THAT MAY BE A HITCHED OPPORTUNITY.
WHAT’S MORE OF A CONCERN AND I HAVE BEEN SPEAKING TO SEVERAL
COMMITTEE MEMBERS I GET THE SENSE SEVERAL ARE ALSO CONCERNED
IS THIS MAY OPEN UP THE 2020 CENSUS TO THE LOCAL COMMUNITY
CRISES OVER SOCIAL MEDIA FOR WHICH THE BUREAU WON’T BE ABLE
TO RESPOND QUICKLY BECAUSE IT’S NOT TAKING ADVANTAGE OF ITS ARMY
OF LOCAL PARTNERSHIP SPECIALISTS.
IT GOES BACK TO THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN THE LOCAL PARTNERSHIP
SPECIALISTS AN SOCIAL MEDIA STRATEGY.
>>THANK YOU, MARIA.>>GOOD MORNING, MARIO.
FOR SOCIAL MEDIA, WELL, WE HAVE A COMBINATION OF EFFORTS HERE.
WE HAVE A SOCIAL MEDIA STAFF AT THE CENSUS BUREAU HEADQUARTER
COORDINATES CLOSELY WITH THE CAMPAIGN SO THEY ARE VERY WELL
SUPPORTED BY OUR TEAM AND SUBCONTRACTORS OR MULTIPLE PARTNER IT IS NOT ONLY A
SUBCONTRACTOR TRYING TO COME WITH THE COMMUNICATION EFFORTS AND PARTICULARLY SOCIAL
MEDIA. AND THE VENDOR WE HAVE SELECTED
FOR SOCIAL MEDIA MONITORING AND WE HAVE A
COMPLEMENTARY SERVICE YNR IS USING TO SUPPORT THE SOCIAL
MEDIA EFFORTS AT THE HEADQUARTERS AND TO THE YNR
POINT OF VIEW. HOWEVER, SOMETHING WE’RE TRYING
TO BE CAREFUL OF THIS TIME AROUND IS INDIVIDUAL SOCIAL
MEDIA ACCOUNTS BY REGIONAL OFFICES AND BY PARTNERSHIP
SPECIALISTS. LAST CENSUS 10 YEARS AGO WHEN SOCIAL
MEDIA WAS KIND OF EXPLODING WE HAD SEVERAL FACEBOOK ACCOUNTS
AND IT WAS INEFFECTIVE. WE HAD DIFFERENT MESSAGES.
WE HAVE PEOPLE FOLLOWING ONE AND WE’RE TRYING TO HAVE ONE VOICE
THIS TIME. AND WITH THE IDEA OF USING OUR
MULTIPLE COMPONENT INCLUDING THE PARTNERSHIP SPECIALISTS TO FEED
THE MAIN ACCOUNT AND MAKE USE OF THE MAIN ACCOUNT.
FOR EXAMPLE, TODAY WITH FACEBOOK WE CAN USE THE HASH TAGS AND USE
EVENTS AND THEY DON’T NECESSARILY NEED THE INDIVIDUAL
ACCOUNT THEY CAN USE THE MAIN ACCOUNT TO SUPPORT WHATEVER
EFFORT THEY’RE DOG LOCALLY AND WE CAN TARGET EFFORTS AND THAT’S
WHAT WE CAN DO BUT OUR RECOMMENDATION IS NOT HAVING
INDIVIDUAL ACCOUNTS OR MULTIPLE EFFORTS BECAUSE IT CAN GET OUT
OF CONTROL AND AT THE END OF THE DAY IT’S NOT EFFECTIVE.
YOU END UP HAVING 3,000 OR 4,000 ACCOUNTS BETWEEN HALF COURTS,
SPECIALISTS AN PARTNERS WE LOSE THE IDEA OF THE ONE VOICE AND WE
NEED TO KEEP IT ONE VOICE.
>>THANK YOU, I THINK IT CLEARLY EXPLAINED MY QUESTION.
I WOULD SUGGEST YOUR ABSOLUTELY RIGHT.
IT MAY GET A LITTLE BIT DISORGANIZED IF EVERY SPECIALIST
STARTED USING THEIR OWN ACCOUNT IT MAY NOT BE WISE TO DO.
>>AND I UNDERSTAND WHEN THEY DO OUTREACH EFFORT THEY COMMUNICATE
WITH FOLKS THROUGH THEIR PERSONAL ACCOUNTS.
I CANNOT PREVENT THAT.
I MYSELF HAVE USED MY CENSUS BUREAU ADDRESS VAND PEOPLE
CONTACTING ME ON MY PERSONAL ACCOUNTS BECAUSE KNOW WHO I AM
AND I UNDERSTAND THAT’S A NATURAL COMMUNICATIONS EFFORTS
BUT FROM A MESSAGING PERSPECTIVE WE’RE TRYING TO KEEP ONE VOICE
THROUGH THE SOCIAL MEDIA PLATFORM.
>>I UNDERSTAND IT’S IMPORTANT TO COORDINATE THE MESSAGE.
BUT I ALSO THINK THERE’S SOMETHING ELSE I WANT TO PUSH
BACK ON. THE CONCEPT OF ONE VOICE, IT’S
VERY ALLURING. IT MAKES THINGS SIMPLE BUT THE
CENSUS IS A LOCAL OPERATION AS WELL.
PERHAPS FORCING ONE VOICE MAY NOT BE AS EFFECTIVE FROM A MESSAGING POINT OF VIEW.
>>THE IDEA OF ONE VOICE IS PARTICULARLY IMPORTANT WHEN YOU
MAKE AUTHORITATIVE STATEMENTS ON FACTS AND SOMETHING WE DISCUSSED
YESTERDAY AND WE’LL DISCUSS MORE.
SORRY, THIS IS LEON THE ASSOCIATE DIRECTOR OF
COMMUNICATIONS, GOING INTO THE CENSUS IS HOW WE’LL COMBAT
MISINFORMATION AND DISINFORMATION AND MAKE SURE
PEOPLE UNDERSTAND THE BASIC FACTS OF HOW TO RESPONSE AND
WHAT THEY GET FROM THE CENSUS BUREAU AND WHAT IS NOT FROM A
CENSUS BUREAU AND WHAT’S FROM A BAD ACTOR.
THERE’S AN ASPECT OF THIS THAT’S FOUNDATIONAL IN OUR
COMMUNICATION STRATEGY WHEN WE LOOK AT OFFICIAL COUNTS AND
VOICES. I’LL LET JAMIE AND GAIL CHIME IN
AND ONE THING THAT’S IMPORTANT HOW PARTNERSHIPS ARE RECRUITED
AND BROUGHT IN IS WE EXPECT A LOT OF TAILORED MESSAGING TO
EMERGE FROM OUR PARTNERSHIP NETWORKS TO SMALL COMMUNITIES.
I FULLY EXPECT YOU’LL SEE DIFFERENT CREATIVE SOCIAL
CAMPAIGNS AND TARGETED MESSAGING EMERGE FROM OUTSIDE THE CENSUS
BUREAU AS A PART OF THE LARGER CAMPAIGN THAT WE’RE SUPPORTING
THROUGH OUR NATIONAL PARTNERSHIP EFFORTS AND INTEGRATED
PARTNERSHIP EXPERTS TOO AND THERE’S A MIDDLE GROUND WHEN THE
POINTS YOU’RE RAISING AND MARIA IS RAISING WHERE ANY NATIONAL
CAMPAIGN HAS TO LIVE AND IT IS EVERYTHING IS A NATIONAL
STRATEGY IMPLEMENTED LOCALLY ABOUT THIS CENSUS.
>>THANK YOU, SO DO LOCAL PARTNERSHIP SPECIALISTS HAVE A
WAY, IF LOCAL PARTNER OR LOCAL PARTNER SPECIALISTS EMERGE
SOMETHING EMERGING IN THE SOCIAL MEDIA, WILL THE CENSUS BUREAU
PROVIDE A WAY TO TAKE UP TO NATIONAL LEVELS WEEKLY?
>>ABSOLUTELY.>>THIS IS JAMIE CHRISTY.
>>WE LISTED A BLOCK OF PEOPLE ALL DOING THE SAME THING.
EMBEDDED IN THE NUMBERS ARE PEOPLE WITH CERTAIN FOCUSES ON MEDIA FOR EXAMPLE.
A IS — TASK IS TO MONITOR LOCALLY AND IT’S NOT JUST
REACTING BUT IT’S BEING PROACTIVE ON THAT.
THEY COMMUNICATION WITH THE CELLS AROUND AND THE PARTNERSHIP
TEAM AROUND THEM AROUND EVENTS AND ACTIVITIES GOING ON.
WE’LL ALSO HAVE PARTNERSHIP SPECIALISTS DEVOTED TO THE
NATIONAL PARTNERSHIP INITIATIVE. IF A MAJOR CORPORATION WANTS TO
DO THAT ON A NATIONAL LEVEL WE’LL DO IT ON THE GROUND AND
WE’LL HAVE PEOPLE DEPLOYED ON THE GROUND.
I THINK THERE’S SYNERGY WITH THE LOCAL MESSAGE
AND THE LOCAL TAILORING WITH THE CENSUS IS WHAT MAKES IT SO COOL.
I REMEMBER THE GIANT T-SHIRTS THAT CAME OUT IN THE 2010
CENSUS, SKID ROW COUNTS IN LOS ANGELES.
YOU SAW THEM IN L.A. A LOCAL COMMUNITY GROUP SAID
THEY HAD TO DO A GOOD JOB AND THEY PASSED OUT THE T-SHIRTS AND
IT’S AWESOME TO SEE THAT. IT’S SOMETHING WE WOULD HAVE
NEVER COME UP WITH BUT THEY DID AND THAT’S COOL AND THAT IS
REPEATED DOZENS OF TIMES.>>JACK.
>>JACK LEVIS. THIS IS PARTLY TO DALE AND
PARTLY TO AL AND I’M AN OPERATIONS PERSON.
YOU’RE ALL PROFESSIONALS, OBVIOUSLY, YOU KNOW WHAT YOU’RE
DOING AND HAVE LOTS OF HISTORY AND SO YOU HAVE PATTERNS OF HOW
THE CENSUS WILL GO JUST LIKE MY BUSINESS, WE HAVE PATTERNS OF
HOW TO EXECUTE. BUT THERE’S CHANGES THIS CENSUS.
YOU HAVE NEW TECHNOLOGY WITH MOJO AND YOU HAVE INTERNET
RESPONSE AND WE HEARD THE CBAM STUFF WHICH IS SOMEWHAT
SOBERING, THE RISK IS IF THE PATTERN CHANGES.
SIMILAR TO MY BUSINESS, THAT’S WHY I’M REACTING E-COMMERCE
CHANGE THE PATTERN OF DELIVERY AT CHRISTMAS AND WHEN A PATTERN
CHANGES, DETECTING THE CHANGE AND REACTING TO IT IS IMPORTANT
TO BECOMING SUCCESSFUL.
WHAT ARE YOU DOING TO DETECT THE PATTERN CHANGES AND I’M GUESSING NERFU IS SHOWING URN YOU DIDN’T
EXPECT AND HOW DO YOUURN YOU DIDN’T EXPECT AND HOW DO YOUPURN
YOU DIDN’T EXPECT AND HOW DO YOURN YOU DIDN’T EXPECT AND HOW
DO YOUN YOU DIDN’T EXPECT AND HOW DO YOU YOU DIDN’T EXPECT AND
HOW DO YOU REACT. YOU ARE LOOKING FOR A CHALLENGE
AND YOU’RE SEEING NERFU IN HIGHER AREAS THAN EXPECTED AND
WILL YOU DETECT THAT AND WILL YOU USE PARTNERS TO HELP YOU REDUCE THAT.
>>IF WE WAIT UNTIL THAT WE WAITED TOO LONG TO DETECT A
CHANGE. WE START DETECTING A CHANGE IF
WE SEE LOWER SELF-RESPONSE. SO WE’RE MONITORING
SELF-RESPONSE FROM THE BEGINNING.
AS WE LOOK AT THE INTERNET SELF-RESPONSE IN THE EARLY DAYS
WHEN WE STARTED INVITING PEOPLE IN MARCH, THE FIRST TWO WEEKS
FOR THE TYPES OF RESPONSE GIVE US INDICATIONS IF WE’RE SEEING
CHANGE IN TIME. WE’RE TIGHTLY SYNCED WITH
COMMUNICATION AND THEIR ABILITY TO USE DIGITAL MEDIA TODAY TO
MOVE IT AND FOCUS IT WHERE WE SEE PATTERNS OF RESPONSE THAT
ARE TOO LOW AS WE’RE IN THE EARLY STAGES OF THE OPERATION.
IF WE START TO SEE THAT IT’S GOING CAUSE US TO HAVE A BIGGER
CUT OVER TO NON-RESPONSE FOLLOW-UP, THAN THE REGIONS ARE
AWARE OF THAT. IT’S A LITTLE TOO LATE TO START
DOING HIRING BUT THEY START TO BE AWARE IF THEY’LL GET A BIGGER
WORK LOAD AND PREPARE AND A CALM STANDPOINT IS WHEN WE
RAMP UP THE MESSAGING WHILE WE’RE STILL OUT WITH INTERNET
SELF-RESPONSE. ONE REASON WE ARE LEAVING THE
INTERNET OPEN TO THE END OF THE OPERATION IS TO GIVE PEOPLE A
CHANCE TO CONTINUE TO RESPOND THROUGHOUT THE RESPOND ON THE
INTERNET. WE CAN DO ACTIVITIES WHERE WE’LL
SAY, OUR COMMUNITY ORGANIZATIONS GOES IN WITH iPADS AND RALLIES
PEOPLE AROUND RESPONDING DUE TO SELF-RESPONSE TOOLS BUT WE’RE
MONITORING THAT FROM DAY ONE.>>PERFECT ANSWER.
TRUST ME THE CHANGE IN PATTERN CAN GET YOU ON YOUR HEELS. PERFECT ANSWER, THANK YOU.
>>I JUST HAD A QUICK QUESTION AS TO WHETHER THERE’S ANY
OUTREACH TO GROUPS THAT CAN BE OVER COUNTED TO PREVENT THAT FROM HAPPENING.
>>SO DO WE HAVE A SPECIFIC EFFORT TO ADDRESS THE OVER COUNT.
THE CLOSEST IS AN OUTREACH WITH UNIVERSITIES.
AND I MEAN STUDENTS GOING BETWEEN TO TRY TO EDUCATE THEM
ON HOW TO BE COUNTED AND WHERE TO BE COUNTED.
SO WE DO AN EARLY ACTIVITY TO CAPTURE STUDENTS BEFORE THEY GO
TO SPRING BREAK.
I DON’T KNOW QUE FOCUS ON THE OVERCOUNT.
>>I DON’T KNOW WE PREPARE BUT THE MESSAGING SHOULD BE DON’T
PUT THESE PEOPLE ON YOUR CENSUS FORM AS YOU DO ON YOUR TAX FORM.
THAT’S A BIG CONCERN AND THE COLLEGE STUDENTS ARE A BIG CONCERN.
THE REAL ANSWER IS COMING.>>I DON’T KNOW IF IT’S THE REAL
ANSWER BUT WE’RE AWARE OF THE PROBLEM.
IT’S SOMETHING THAT WE HAVE WORKED HARD TO ADDRESS
OPERATIONALLY. THROUGH THE RESIDENTS CRITERIA
WE’RE DOING THINGS IN COMMUNICATION TO GET AS CLEAR AS
WE CAN AND WE HELP IDENTIFY PEOPLE THAT MAY BE IN TWO PLACES
OR COUNTED IN TWO PLACES. THE PROBLEM EXISTS NOT JUST WITH
COLLEGE STUDENTS BUT PEOPLE WHO HAVE TWO VACATION HOMES.
IN THE WINTERTIME THE FORM WILL GO OR THE MAILING PACKAGE WILL
GO TO EVERY HOUSEHOLD. WE DO TRY TO REACH OUT TO PEOPLE
TO HELP THEM UNDERSTAND IF THEY’RE IN TRANSIT FROM VERMONT
TO FLORIDA DURING THE SPRING, THEY NEED TO REACH OUT
TO ORGANIZATIONS TO HELP US GET THE MESSAGE I THINK THAT’S AN
INTERESTING IDEA WE HADN’T THOUGHT OF BEFORE AND IT’S
SOMETHING WE LOOK AT CLOSELY AND IN INCREASING SOPHISTICATION
FROM AN OPERATIONAL PERSPECTIVE AND QUESTION OR CONTENT PERSPECTIVE.
AT >>AT THE BACK END, THERE’S
EFFORTS TO MAKE SURE WE DON’T DUPLICATE THE RESPONSE.
THERE’S SYSTEM THINGS TO PREVENT MY RESPONSE
AND I WIFE RESPOND FROM THE SAME ADDRESS.
WE HAVE DUPLICATION PROCESSES WITHIN THE SYSTEM BUILT INTO THE
MEASURE TO TRY TO REDUCE OVERCOUNT RESULT FROM THAT.
>>AND WE’RE BETTER AT THAT THAN EVER BEFORE WITH OUR USE OF
ADMINISTRATIVE RECORDS, FOR EXAMPLE, AND THE FACT WE CAN DO
MORE AND HAVE STRONGER ABILITY TO IDENTIFY DUPLICATION WHICH IS
IMPORTANT WITH FRAUD AS WELL AND OUR ABILITY TO IDENTIFY WHERE
MULTIPLE RESPONSE COMING IN.
>>LEON, THE ASSOCIATE DIRECTOR OF COMMUNICATION.
I ALSO THINK IT’S NOT CULLED OUT IN THAT WAY EXACT WAY BUT IT’S
AN INTERESTING LOOK AT THE EDUCATION COMPONENT OF OUR
OVERALL COMMUNICATION CAMPAIGN INCLUDING EVEN IN PAID MEDIA.
WHEN EVEN WHEN I THINK ABOUT COMPLEX HOUSEHOLDS AND WHO IS
SUPPOSED TO BE COUNTED WHERE IS HAPPENING ALL THE TIME.
I LIKE TO BRING UP THE EXAMPLE OF WHEN MY WIFE WAS IN LAW
SCHOOL IN 2010, IT WAS COMPLEX AS TO WHETHER MAKING SURE SHE’S
COUNTIED IN THE — COUNTED IN THE APARTMENT SHE WAS IN OR
WHERE I WAS. SOMETHING I KEEP IN MIND WHEN I
THINK OF HOW WE’RE COMMUNICATING TO PEOPLE.SOMETHING I KEEP IN MIND
WHEN I THINK OF HOW WE’RE COMMUNICATING TO PEOPLE.
>>CATHY.>>I WOULD CAUTION AGAINST
COMPLETE RELIANCE ON THE A.C.S. DATA WHICH FIVE YEARS AND LAGGED
AND HAS VERY WIDE MARGINS OF ERROR.
I WOULD ENCOURAGE THEM TO LOOK AND LOOK AT LOCAL DATA FROM
THEIR CHIEF DATA OFFICERS OR CITIES OR OUR BALTIMORE PARTNER
IS LOOKING AT THE BURSTS IN THE LAST FIVE YEARS IN BALTIMORE AND
LOOKING WHERE FOSTER KIDS ARE.
KNOWING HOW SQUISHY THE DATA IS AT THE TRACK LEVEL AND I
WOULDN’T WANT THEM TO MISS A NEW CROP OF PEOPLE MOVING TO
SUBURBAN JURISDICTION BECAUSE THEY’RE GETTING GENTRIFIED OUT
OF SOME PLACE IN L.A. OR WHATEVER.
>>THANK YOU FOR THAT AND THAT’S A VERY GOOD POINT AND WHY ONE OF
THE REASONS WHY OUR PARTNER IN THESE COMMUNITIES ARE SO
IMPORTANT. THEY’RE DEALING WITH THE
INDIVIDUALS AND THE MOVEMENT OF INDIVIDUALS.
THANK YOU.>>I HAVE A QUICK QUESTION AND
THEN A COMMENT. YOU MENTIONED, I THINK YOU
MENTIONED A GOAL OF 300,000 PARTNERS BY MARCH 1.
HOW DO YOU KNOW YOU HAVE A PARTNER?
WE ARE CAPTURING THAT INFORMATION IN OUR C.R.M., CUSTOMER RESPONSE
MANAGEMENT SYSTEM AND IT’S WHEN A PARTNER PLEDGE TO HELP US WITH
THE CENSUS.>>THANK YOU, THAT’S GREAT.
>>DO THEY HAVE TO USE THE TERM?>>NO.
>>IT SOUNDED 1960s TO ME.>>NO.
IT COULD BE ANY EFFORT.>>CAN I MAKE A COMMENT.
A PARTNER SOMETIMES IS SOMEONE AS SIMPLE AS A HAIR DRESSER SHOP
OR BEARD SHOP THAT POSTS SIGNS AND THEIR MAKING PEOPLE AWARE OF
THE CENSUS IN THEIR COMMUNITY. THOSE ACTIVITIES AT THE LOCAL
LEVEL MAKE A LOT OF DIFFERENCE. A CHURCH ACTIVITY IS A PARTNER
SOMETIMES WHILE THE PASTOR DISCUSSES THE VOICE AND WHILE
THE RABBI IS A TRUSTED VOICE THEY CAN TALK ABOUT THIS COUNTS
FOR US AND OUR COMMUNITY AND BE AWARE OF IT.
HAVE YOU A RANGE OF THE WAYS PARTNER PARTICIPATE AND HELP US.
>>THAT’S SO GOOD. I’M SO GLAD TO HEAR THAT, THANK
YOU. THAT MAKES ME FEEL BETTER.
THAT’S WHAT I WAS SEEING AS WELL.
AND >>IN NEW ORLEANS FOLKS HAVE
ASKED IF THEY DECIDE TO PARTNER HOW THEY WOULD MEASURE THEIR
EFFECTIVENESS. WE WERE KIND OF PONDERING THIS
AND WE KNOW YOU ALL WILL BE PUBLISHING THEM WHICH IS GREAT.
I KNOW DIFFERENT PLACES ARE DIFFERENT.
AND IN NEW ORLEANS BECAUSE NOW ALL OF OUR SCHOOLS ARE CHARTERED
AND EVERYTHING IS DIFFUSED. A SCHOOL DOESN’T SERVE A CERTAIN
CENSUS TRACK. IT SERVES THE WHOLE CITY AND
LOTS OF PEOPLE GO ALL OVER THE CITY TO GET ANYTHING DONE.
IT’S HARD FOR ONE ORGANIZATION TO TRACK THEIR EFFECTIVENESS BY
CENSUS TRACK. WE ALL TALKED A LITTLE BIT ABOUT
THE POSSIBILITY OF 2030 BEING A CENSUS OF PEOPLE INSTEAD OF
HOUSEHOLDS. AND THE FACT THAT EVEN THE
DEFINITION OF A HOUSEHOLD IS GETTING MORE AND MORE AND MORE DIFFICULT.
I THOUGHT IN AN IDEAL WORLD IF WE WERE TRACKING PEOPLE YOU’D BE
TRACKING BY PEOPLE AND THE ORGANIZATIONS AND THE
BARBERSHOPS AND WHATNOT WOULD BE ABLE TO MEASURE THEIR
EFFECTIVENESS. I THOUGHT I’D MENTION THAT AS
FOOD FOR FUTURE THOUGHT IN TERMS OF BECAUSE I THINK THE QUESTION
OF HOW TO MEASURE THE EFFECTIVENESS OF THE PARTNERSHIP
IS IMPORTANT. THE CENSUS WANTS TO MEASURE ITS
EFFECTIVENESS IN ALL WAYS AND THERE MAY BE MORE POSSIBILITIES
IN THE FUTURE IF RESPONSE IS NOT MEASURED.
SO TIDE HOUSEHOLDS IN A — TIED TO HOUSEHOLDS IN A GEOGRAPHIC FASHION.
>>BASED ON THE MEASUREMENT, EMPLOYEES, ARE THEY INCENTIVIZED
ON SOME MEASURE?>>THEY ARE EVALUATED ON THEIR
PERFORMANCE BUT THERE’S NO DIRECT INCENTIVE TO DO MORE OR
LESS. .
>>WE ACTUALLY HAVE LOOKED AT DOING SOME DIFFERENT KINDS OF
INCENTIVES IN THE PAST THE CHALLENGE GOES BACK TO TRYING TO
FIND A CONSISTENT WAY OF DOING ININCENTIVES LIKE AL MENTIONED
PATH FLYER UP IN A — PUTTING A FLYER UP IN A BARBERSHOP AND YOU
GET RECRUITS, IT GOES BACK TO WHAT YOU’RE ASKING THEM TO DO
AND ARE THEY DOING IT. THAT’S GENERALLY HOW WE MEASURE
HOW WELL THEY’RE DOING WHAT WE ASK THEM TO DO.
AND THAT’S GENERALLY A JUDGMENT LIKE MOST OF US ARE EVALUATED IN
TERMS OF OUR PERFORMANCE.
>>I THINK WE’RE READY FOR THE NEXT SESSION.
>>JONATHAN ROTHBAUM AND EDWARD BERCHICK
WILL DISCUSS THE CURRENT POPULATION SURVEY ANNUAL SOCIAL
AND ECONOMIC SUPPLEMENT.
JEFF LOWER.>>WE’LL TALK ABOUT THE REDESIGN
WE’VE BEEN WORKING ON FOR THE LAST FEW YEARS.
SO JUST TO GIVE YOU A SENSE OF WHAT WE’RE TALKING ABOUT I, I
WANT TO SHOW THE INCOME AREA AND WE’LL TALK ABOUT HEALTH
INSURANCE IN 2014 WE REDESIGNED THE QUESTIONNAIRE SO THIS IS
INCOME YEAR 2013. CAN SEE FOR EXAMPLE IN OUR
HISTORICAL SERIES THERE’S A BREAK IN SERIES WHERE WE WERE
USING THE NEW QUESTIONS AND OLD PROCESSING SYSTEM.
IN THE INTERIM WE’VE BEEN WORKING ON THE DATA PROCESSING
SYSTEM TO GET FULL VALUE FROM THE DATA WE’VE BEEN COLLECTING
AND FROM 2018 INCOME YEAR FORWARD IT GOES INTO
OUR ESTIMATES FOR INCOME POVERTY AND HEALTH INSURANCE.
AND THEN WE REPROCESSED BACK AND WE HAVE ONE WHERE WE RELEASED
THE PUBLIC USE FILE AND IN THE NEXT FEW WEEKS WE’LL PUT A FILE
FOR INSURANCE INCOME AND THOUGH THERE’S AN EVERY LAP AND THE
INCOME COVERS THE OFFICIAL ESTIMATES WE PUT OUT.
THAT’S WHAT WE’RE TALKING ABOUT HERE.
AND SO NOW TO GO THROUGH MORE BACKGROUND OF THAT AND TALK
ABOUT THE SURVEY CHANGES THEMSELVES ON THE INCOME SIDE
WITH HEALTH INSURANCE AND THE PROCESSING CHANGES WE’RE MAKING.
A BACKGROUND IT’S THE LONGEST RUNNING SURVEY CONDUCTED BY THE
CENSUS BUREAU. IT’S THE SOURCE OF OUR NATIONAL
POVERTY STATISTICS AND LOOK AT MEDIAN HOUSEHOLD INCOME AND THE
UNINSURED RATE. THERE’S BEEN GROWING EVIDENCE
OVER MISCLASSIFICATION ON REPORTING OF INCOME AND CONCERNS
OF OVER ESTIMATES OF THE INSURED RATE AND WHY IT WAS IMPLEMENTED.
AND IN 2014 WE HAD A SPLIT PANEL WHERE THERE WERE TWO SETS OF
RESPOND ENTS RANDOMLY SELECTED TO GIVE AN OLD AND NEW
QUESTIONNAIRE AND OLD RESPONDENTS GOT NEW
QUESTIONNAIRE AND THAT WAS PUT INTO PRODUCTION IN 2015 AND
WE’VE BEEN PROCESSING THE DATA WITH THE PROCESSING SYSTEM WHILE
WE’VE BEEN CATCHING UP WITH THE HE HAD ITS AND NOW FROM 2019
FORWARD WE’LL BE USING UPDATED PROCESSES WE’VE BEEN WORKING ON
AND WHY DID WE DO THE REDESIGN? IMPROVING THE DATA QUALITY.
A BIG FOCUS OR INCOME WAS THE CHANGING NATURAL OF RETIREMENT.
WORLD’S BEEN CHANGE FROM THE LAST 40, 50 YEAR FROM DEFINED
BENEFIT PENSION TO 401(k)s AND NOW THAT’S BEING REFLECTED MORE
AND MORE IN THE INCOME OF RETIREE.
WE NEEDED TO REDESIGN THAT TO BETTER CAPTURE THAT INCOME AND
REFLECT THE CHANGING LANDSCAPE FOR HEALTH INSURANCE.
WHAT DID WE DO? ONE OF THE THINGS WE’RE
TARGETING IS NON-RESPONSES GOING UP.
IF SOMEONE IS UNWILLING TO GIVE US THE RESPONSE OF HOW MANY
DOLLARS THEY HAVE IN EARNINGS, WE IS THEM IS IT $0 TO $50,000.
WE HAVE MORE DETAILS TO OUR REQUIREMENT INTEREST QUESTIONS
AND CHANGES TO HOW PEOPLE REPORT DISABILITY AND ELIMINATE
CONFUSION WE WERE SEEING AND VARIOUS OTHER CHANGES.
WHEN WE ANALYZE THE DATA WE SAW 3.2% HIGHER MEDIAN HOUSEHOLD
INCOME. THIS IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN
THE TWO QUESTIONNAIRES OVER THE TWO PERIODS.
WE SAW A DIFFERENCE BUT NOT STATISTICALLY SIGNIFICANT IN
POVERTY. WHEN WE PROCESS THE OLD
QUESTIONS AND THE NEW QUESTIONS AND BY INCOME TYPE YOU SEE 4%
OVERALL AND YOU SEE MORE INCOME IN THE CATEGORIES WE’RE
TARGETING AND MORE INCOME IN THE CATEGORIES WE WERE SPECIFICALLY ASKING.
TWO SETS OF RESPONDENTS OVER THE SAME PERIOD.
WE’VE BEEN LOOKING AT THE DATA. WE’RE USING RANGING IN OUR
AMPUTATION IF YOU SAID YOU WERE IN $0 TO $50,000 WE’LL LOOK AT
THE RANGE. WE OVERHAULED HOW WE VIEWED
OTHER INCOME AND WE HAD VARIOUS OTHERS AS WE MADE
VARIOUS OTHER ADVANCES. THE MOST IMPORTANT OF WHICH
WHICH YOU’LL SEE LATER IS THE TOP CODE FOR A LOT OF INCOMES
WERE FIXED AND NOMINAL TERMS.
WE THEM IN THE — INCREASED OUR DATA AND WE’LL REVISIT THEM MORE
FREQUENTLY SO THERE WON’T BE A DECLINE IN THE TOP CODE.
TO GIVE YOU A SENSE FOR RANKS, ABOUT 20% OF RESPONDENTS ARE
ITEM NON-RESPONDENTS TO EARNINGS.
WHEN YOU GET TO HOW MUCH DID YOU EARN, THEY’LL SAY I DON’T KNOW
OR UNWILLING TO RESPOND AND 75% OF THOSE PEOPLE GAVE ACE RANGE
— US A RANGE TO USE AND A LOT OF PEOPLE WERE WILLING TO GIVE
US THAT DATA SO THAT’S A BIG IMPROVEMENT AND ABOUT HALF THE
ITEMS HAVE A RANGE ATTACHED TO THEM SO THIS IS GIVING US A LOT
MORE INFORMATION WITH WHICH TO CAN DO BETTER ESTIMATES FOR
INCOME. FOR ALLOCATIONS FLAGS FOR DATA
USERS, THIS IS SOMETHING I’VE SEEN ANECDOTALLY A LOT.
THERE WERE TWO FLAGS DATA USERS HAD TO CHECK ONE IS THE
AMPUTATION FLAG FOR THE ITEM AND THE OTHER WAS A CRYPTICALLY
NAMED VARIABLE. THEY DIDN’T RESPOND TO ENOUGH OF
THE INCOME PORTION FOR THE DATA TO BE USED IT’S A WHOLE
SUPPLEMENT SO ALL THE DATA ITEMS ARE IMPUTED.
AND WE CHANGED IT SO IF THERE’S ONE CODE YOU HAVE TO CHECK AND
THAT INFORMATION OF HOW IT WAS IMPUTED IS THERE.
AND IT ALSO INCLUDES INFORMATION ON THE QUALITY AND WHETHER A
RANGE WAS USED IN THAT ALLOCATION.
HAVE YOU MORE INFORMATION IN HOW MUCH TO TRUST A PARTICULAR ALLOCATION.
WE DON’T HAVE A LOT OF TIME TO GO THROUGH ALL THE CHANGES BUT
THAT’S A QUICK LOOK AT THEM. I WANT TO SHOW YOU THE RESULTS
NOW COMPARING THE MORE RECENT YEARS WITH THE NEW QUESTIONS, PROCESSED TWO DIFFERENT WAYS.
THIS IS THE PERSON LEVEL AND WE SEE 1.4% MORE DOLLARS FOR ONE
PERSON AND FOR SOME PROGRAMS YOU SEE LESS INCOME AND POTENTIALLY
MORE OVERALL. THE BIG CHANGES FOR THOSE ARE
HOW WE DO ALLOCATIONS AN USING THE RANGE RESPONDENTS REPORTED,
NON-RESPONDENTS REPORTED. THOSE ARE THE CHANGES THERE.
FOR INTEREST IN DIVIDES A BIG CHANGE IN THE — DIVIDENDS IN
THE TOTAL THERE’S A CHANGE IN TOP INCREASE AND THEY HAVE THE
SAME RANGE IN ALLOCATION CHANGES.
IN TERMS OF HOUSEHOLD INCOME AT THE MEDIAN, YOU DON’T SEE VERY
MANY CHANGES SO THIS IS MEDIAN HOUSEHOLD INCOME OVERALL AND BY
SUBGROUPS. FOR MOST THEY’RE NOT
STATISTICALLY DIFFERENT OR ECONOMICALLY MEANINGFUL BUT YOU
SEE A HANDFUL OF GROUP WITH STATISTICALLY SIGNIFICANT
DIFFERENCES AT THE 90% LEVEL HISPANIC AND TWO AGE GROUPS.
AT THE TOP OF THE DISTRIBUTION, YOU SEE MORE INCOME.
THIS IS PRIMARILY ABOUT INCREASING THE TOP CODE YOU SEE
ACROSS THE BOARD INCREASES. I’LL HAND THIS OVER TO EDWARD TO
TALK ABOUT HEALTH INSURANCE.
THERE WAS A REDESIGNED QUESTIONNAIRE TO CAPTURE
INFORMATION ON HEALTH INSURANCE STARTING IN 2013.
THE CHANGES WE EXTEND THE REFERENCE PERIOD AND GATHERED
INFORMATION ABOUT TYPES OF HEALTH INSURANCE COVERAGE THAT
HAD NOT PREVIOUSLY EXISTED AND DID A HOUSEHOLD DESIGN.
THE REASON WAS TO REDUCE RESPONDENT BURDEN AND THINK
THROUGH THE TYPES OF COVERAGE THEY HAD.
THE SECOND WAS TO INCREASE THE RATE OF COVERAGE BECAUSE IT
TENDED TO CAPTURE LESS COVERAGE AND THE IN INSURED RATE TENDED
TO BE HIGHER AND THE DETAIL OF THESE TYPES THAT WERE ENTERING
THE HEALTH INSURANCE LANDSCAPE. THE NEW QUESTIONNAIRE MOVED FROM
THE BROAD QUESTIONS AND ASKED MORE TAILORED SPECIFIC
QUESTIONS. SO PERSONS COULD REPORT THEIR
COVERAGE THROUGH 600 DIFFERENT PATHS.
THE OLD TRADITIONAL PROCESSING SYSTEM WITH THE NEW DATA MEANT
WE COULD NOT ALWAYS PRESERVE THE MORE DETAILED INFORMATION.
THE NEW UPDATED PROCESSING SYSTEM INCLUDES MORE DETAIL ON
THE NEW TYPES OF COVERAGE AND MARKETPLACE COVERAGE AND WHETHER
IT WAS SUBSIDIZED. WE USED SUB-ANNUAL HEALTH
INFORMATION AT THE MONTHLY LEVEL AND IMPLEMENTED A NEW PROCESS
THAT USES HEALTH INSURANCE UNITS I’LL TALK ABOUT IN A COUPLE
SLIDES. THE OTHER THING THE
QUESTIONNAIRE CHANGED AND WE WERE ABLE TO IMPLEMENT IS
SEPARATE TRI CARE FROM OTHER MILITARY COVERAGE.
THAT’S FOR ACTIVE DUTY MILITARY AND OTHER TYPES OF MILITARY
COVERAGE ARE TYPES OF PUBLIC COVERAGE.
BEFORE WE HAD THEM TOGETHER AND NOW WE CAN SEPARATE THEM AND PUT
TRI CARE IN THE CATEGORY OF PRIVATE WHICH MEANS OUR
DEFINITIONS OF PUBLIC AND PRIVATE HAVE CHANGED WITH THE
UPDATED PROCESSING SYSTEM.
JUST TO GO OVER RESULTS. I WANT TO SAY WE’RE GOING
COMPARE THE RESULTS FROM THE RESEARCH FILE WHICH USES THE
UPDATED PROCESSING SYSTEM AND PRODUCTION FILE WHICH USES THE
TRADITIONAL SYSTEM AND WE URGE CAUTION IN MAKING THE COMPARISON
BUT WE’RE DOING THIS TO YOU WILL STRAIGHT THE — TO ILLUSTRATE
THE CHANGES. YOU CAN SEE WITH THE NEW
PROCESSING SYSTEM ON THE GREEN LINE THE OVERALL COVERAGE RATE
IS ABOUT 9/10s HIGHER.
THE IN UNINSURED RATE IS DIFFERENT AND
WE HAVE A WEBSITE THAT GOES THROUGH THE DIFFERENT REASONS
WHY THE CHANGE OCCUR. TWO I WANT TO HIGHLIGHT IS WE
UPDATE THE IMPUTATION PROCEDURE IN WHICH NO HOUSEHOLD MEMBER REPORTS COVERAGE.
WITH THE TRADITIONAL SYSTEM WE DIDN’T TAKE INTO ACCOUNT THE
OTHER TYPES OF COVERAGE THE PERSON IMPUTED OR THE COVERAGE
STATUS OF OTHER PEOPLE’S HOUSEHOLD.
NOW WE START AT A HEALTH INSURANCE UNIT WHICH SAY CONCEPT
FROM THE UNIVERSITY OF MINNESOTA THAT LOOKS AT PEOPLE WITHIN A
HOUSEHOLD WHO ARE ELIGIBLE TO SHARE COVERAGE AND WE DO
IMPUTATION BASED ON THAT CONSTRUCT.
AND WE’LL HAVE A WORKING PAPER SPECIFICALLY ON THAT COMING OUT
IN THE NEXT FEW WEEKS. WE ALSO REFINED HOW WE CONSTRUCT
ESTIMATES OF ANNUAL COVERAGE. WE BUILT UP THE ANNUAL LEVEL TO
THE ANNUAL LEVEL LIKE INCOME OUR MAIN COVERAGE ESTIMATE IS FOR
THE PREVIOUS CALENDAR YEAR. AND AGAIN I WANT TO EMPHASIZE
WITH THE UPDATED PROCESSING SYSTEM, THE DEFINITIONS OF
PUBLIC AND PRIVATE HAVE CHANGED. SO IF YOU LOOK ON THE SLIDE YOU
CAN SEE THAT WHAT IT FALLS INTO EACH BUCKET AND THE MAIN CHANGES
TRICARE IS MOVING FROM THE PUBLIC LINE UP TO THE PRIVATE
LINE. SO YOU CAN SEE WITH THE NEW
UPDATED PROCESSING SYSTEM, PRIVATE COVERAGE IS
SIGNIFICANTLY HIGHER AND PUBLIC COVERAGE IS SIGNIFICANTLY LOWER. IF YOU LOOK AT SPECIFIC COVERAGE
TYPES YOU SEE SIGNIFICANT CHANGES BETWEEN THE RESEARCH AND
PRODUCTION FILE AND UPDATE AND TRADITIONAL PROCESSING SYSTEMS
FOR ALL TYPES OF COVERAGE EXCEPT FOR MEDICARE.
ONE THE AIMS IS TO CAPTURE CHANGING INSURANCE LANDSCAPE.
WE LOOKED AT WHAT GROUPS HAVE THE LARGEST CHANGES AND
CONSISTENT WE FOUND THE LARGEST CHANGES FOR ADULTS AGED 19 TO 64
AND FOR PERSONS INCOME TO POVERTY RATIOS BELOW 400% WHICH
IS CONSISTENT WITH CHANGES HAVE IDENTIFIED IN THE HEALTH POLICY
LITERATURE. YOU CAN SEE THAT HERE FOR THE
SAKE OF TIME I’M NOT GOING TO GO THROUGH ALL THE ESTIMATES.
WE ALSO HAVE HEALTH INSURANCE MEASURES AND WHETHER DIRECT
COVERAGE WAS THROUGH A MARKETPLACE SO HEALTHCARE.gov
AND WHETHER THAT PERSON RECEIVED A SUBSIDY TO PARTNER WITH THE
HEALTH INSURANCE PREMIUMS. WE ALSO HAVE MEASURES OF
COVERAGE AND WHETHER A PERSON HAD COVERAGE NON OF THE YEAR,
PART OF THE YEAR OR ALL THE YEAR, WE HAVE REFINED MILITARY
COVERAGE. TRYCARE IS SEPARATED.
AND PREVIOUSLY WE ONLY HAD WHETHER A PERSON WAS COVERED
DURING FEBRUARY, MARCH OR APRIL WHEN THE INTERVIEW OCCUR AND NOW
WE HAVE INFORMATION ON THE TYPE OF COVERAGE THEY HELD AT THE
TIME OF INTERVIEW.
IN TERMS OF OUTREACH, WE HAVE A LIST OF WORK PAPERS.
SOME ARE COMING PAPERS AND SOME WILL BE AVAILABLE IN THE NEXT
COMING WEEKS AND MONTHS AND WE HAVE THE UPDATED PROCESSING
SYSTEM. IN APRIL WE’LL RELEASE THE
BRIDGE FILE TO UTILIZE THE UPDATEDUPDATED PROCESSING SYSTEM
AND USER NOTES AND TECHNICAL DOCUMENTATION AND THE LIKE.
WE’RE ALSO DOING OUTREACH AT PROFESSIONAL ORGANIZATIONS,
ACADEMIC ORGANIZATIONS. YOU CAN SEE A LIST OF
CONFERENCES UP THERE AT WHEN WE PRESENTED IN THE FALL OR HAVE
PAPERS ACCEPTED IN THE COMING MONTHS AND P.A.s THE WEEK
AFTERWARDS. WE’LL BE HOLDING I MEETING TO REACH OUT
TO THOSE IN THE GOVERNMENT AND OUTSIDE THE GOVERNMENT.
IN TERMS OF IMPLEMENTATION, WE WILL RELEASE THE ONE FILE AND
RELEASE THE SECOND FILE APRIL 2019 AND THEN USE THAT IN THE
RELEASE FOR THE REPORTS THIS YEAR.
STARTING IN SEPTEMBER GOING FORWARD WE’LL SWITCH TO THE
UPDATED PROCESSING SYSTEM. WE WON’T PROCESS USING THE
TRADITIONAL PROCESSING SYSTEM GOING FORWARD.
THIS IS THE LAST SLIDE. HERE’S A QUESTION FOR YOU.
DO YOU HAVE ANY ADDITIONAL SUGGESTIONS FOR OUTREACH?
DO YOU HAVE AN IDEA OF GROUPS WE SHOULD BE REACHING OUT TO TO
DISCUSS THE CHANGES? AND IF WE DO SO, HOW SHOULD WE TALK
ABOUT THE SLIT OFF OF TRICARE FOR OTHERS MILITARY INSURANCE
AND FOR INCOME AND POVERTY, SHOULD WE CONSIDER THESE CHANGES
TO BE A BREAK IN THE SERIES? THANK YOU VERY MUCH FOR YOUR TIME.
>>THANK YOU. I’LL TURN IT OVER TO JEFF.
>>MY COMMENTS ARE SHORT. I ONLY HAVE TWO SLIDES.
THE FIRST SLIDE I ESSENTIALLY RESTATED YOUR QUESTION.
THANK YOU AND THE REASON I PUT THIS UP IS TO GO BACK TO THE
SLIDE TO GET THE COMMITTEE INPUT AND I REALLY DID WANT TO LEAVE A
LOT OF TIME FOR THE COMMITTEE INPUT.
IN TERMS OF OUTREACH, I’M NOT A STATISTICIAN.
IT’S NOT REALLY MY AREA OF EXPERTISE.
I’M LOOKING FOR THE COMMITTEE TO PROVIDE GOOD INPUT ON THAT.
THE QUESTION I WOULD HAVE RELATED TO OUTREACH IS YOU
LISTED YOUR PEER PAPERS WHICH I READ WHICH WERE GOOD.
AND I DIDN’T UNDERSTAND SOME OF THEM.
YOU ALSO LISTED SOME CONFERENCES THAT YOU’LL OUTREACH WILL ATTEND
AND MY QUESTION RELATED TO THAT IS ARE THE USERS OF REPRESENTED
AT THE CONFERENCES? IS THAT THE ENDPOINT OF THE
OUTREACH OR DO YOU HAVE TO GO ONE LEVEL DEEPER TO GET TO THE
USERS OF THE DATA? THE QUESTION I WAS MOST
INTRIGUED ABOUT WAS YOUR QUESTION ABOUT WHETHER OR NOT
THE CHANGES IN THE IMPROVEMENTS AND THE PROCESS FOR BOTH INCOME
AND HEALTH REPRESENT A TIME SERIES BREAK.
SO IN MY OPINION, IT SOUNDS LIKE AND THIS IS SOMETHING ELSE YOU
COULD STAY TOO BUT IT SOUNDS LIKE FROM BOTH YOUR PERSPECTIVES
YOU’RE CONSIDERING IN A TIME SERIES BREAK UP TERMS OF MOVING
FORWARD WITH THE NEW PROCESS, I DO THINK IT DEPENDS ON THE ICE
OF THE DATA OR THE URGS OF THE DATA AND WHETHER OR NOT THEY
UNDERSTAND THE CHANGES. IT GOES BACK TO WHAT YOU PUT IN
YOUR QUESTION, HOW DO YOU CONVEY THE CHANGES AND COMMUNICATE THE
CHANGES TO THE END USERS OF THE DATA SO THEY UNDERSTAND THE
CONSTRAINTS OF LOOKING AT LEGACY DATA VERSUS DATA MOVING FORWARD.
I THINK THE MESSAGE HAS TO BE 100% POSITIVE.
EVERYTHING YOU’RE DOING IS GREAT.
YOU’RE IMPROVING THE DATA AND MAKING IT MORE ACCURATE.
AS THE END USER OF THE DATA I DON’T SEE HOW ANYBODY CAN BE
OFFENDED THE PROCESS HAS IMPROVED.
I THINK THAT’S YOUR TAGLINE OR MESSAGE MOVING FORWARD, HEY, WE
HAVE THIS GREAT DATA NOW AND WE’RE GOING TO DO EVERYTHING WE
CAN TO MAKE IT USABLE FOR YOU EVEN IF YOU HAVE TO COMPARE IT TO LEGACY DATA.
MY QUESTION IS HOW FAR BACK CAN YOU GO?
DOES IT GO BACK TO WHERE THE QUESTIONS CHANGED WHICH I GUESS
IS 2015 OR CAN YOU IMPLEMENT THE NEW PROCESSES ON LEGACY DATA
WHERE THE QUESTIONS HAD NOT CHANGED?
AND WITH THAT, CAN YOU SOME CONFIDENCE INTERVAL
FOR EVEN THE LEGACY DATA BASED ON WHAT OUR DISCUSSION WAS WITH DISCLOSURE AVOIDANCE.
THOSE ARE THE QUESTIONS I HAVE. I BELIEVE WE HAVE CHRISTIAN ON
THE LINE AND I BELIEVE HE HAS INPUT AS WELL AS THE REST OF THE COMMITTEE.
I’LL GO BACK TO THE SLIDES YOU SHOWED AND OPEN IT UP FOR
COMMITTEE DISCUSSION.>>AND IF YOU WANT TO ANSWER WHAT JEFF JUST ASKED.
>>WE HAVE SOME OF THE EXPERIENCE WITH THE TIME BREAK
BECAUSE THE DIVISION HAS AFFECT THE INCOME ESTIMATES AND WE CAN
USE THE GAP AND UNCERTAINTY TO WORK BACKWARDS TO ADJUST THE
PRE-REDESIGNED ESTIMATES TO MATCH THE CURRENT ONES THOUGH
THE FURTHER YOU GET AWAY FROM THE REDESIGN THE STRONGER THE
ASSUMPTIONS. THIS IS A LONG-RUNNING SERIES.
YOU CAN GO BACK TO THE ’60s.
IT’S NOT THE FIRST REDESIGN. IN THE PAST, FOR EXAMPLE, YOU
HAVE A MEDIAN HOUSEHOLD INCOME AND THE NEW EDIT IS TO TREAT IT
AS A SERIES BUT THAT’S NOT ALWAYS TRUE FOR ANY STATISTICS
OF INTEREST FOR INCOME. IT CAN BE A CHALLENGE IF
PARTICULAR SUBGROUPS WERE AFFECTED FROM THE REDESIGN MORE
THAN THE AVERAGE OVERALL POPULATION.
>>AND WITH HEALTH INSURANCE DATA THE QUESTIONNAIRE CAPTURES
SUCH DIFFERENT CONTENT. IT GOES ABOUT CAPTURING CONTENT
WE DIDN’T GO BACK.
>>I DON’T KNOW IF KRISHNA CALLED IN.
>>I DON’T HAVE THEM ON THE LINE, ALLISON.
>>IT’S EARLY ON THE WEST COAST.>>KEN SIMONSON.
I’M INTERESTED WHETHER THE MEASUREMENT OF INCOME
PARTICULARLY AT THE HIGH END HAS CHANGED IN A WAY YOU CAN CAPTURE
AND IT’S CONCERNED ME HAVE YOU SOMEBODY OVER $200,000 SIN THAT RANGE AND MANY
— IS IN THAT RANGE AND MANY PEOPLE WOULD GO OVER $100
MILLION THAN YEARS AGO AND IF WE GO TO THE INCOME INEQUALITY AND
SOURCES OF INCOME. 0 MILLION THAN YEARS
AGO AND IF WE GO TO THE INCOME INEQUALITY AND SOURCES OF
INCOME. MILLION THAN YEARS AGO AND IF WE GO TO THE INCOME
INEQUALITY AND SOURCES OF INCOME.MILLION THAN YEARS AGO
AND IF WE GO TO THE INCOME INEQUALITY AND SOURCES OF
INCOME.MILLION THAN YEARS AGO AND IF WE GO TO THE INCOME
INEQUALITY AND SOURCES OF INCOME. MILLION THAN YEARS AGO
AND IF WE GO TO THE INCOME INEQUALITY AND SOURCES OF
INCOME. AND DO YOU HAVE A PLAN AS PEOPLE
MOVE INTO HIGHER INCOME BRACKET OR OTHER CHARACTERISTICS CHANGES
YOU’RE ASKING ABOUT?
>>THAT’S VALID AS THE INCOME BECOMES MORE SKEW. TO CAPTURE IN THE SURVEY BUT I
THINK THE CONCERN I THINK SAY VALID ONE.
IT’S A CHALLENGE FOR HOW WE DO TOP CODING.
THE FURTHER YOU GET IN THE TAIL THE HIGHER CHANCE FOR
MISREPORTING OR AN EXTRA ZERO HITS AND THAT PRESENTS A
CHALLENGE FOR HOW WE LOOK AT TOP CODING.
IT’S SOMETHING WE HAVE THOUGHT ABOUT IN ADMINISTRATIVE RECORDS
AS A WAY TO GET AT WHAT MIGHT WE BE MISSING IN THE FAR RIGHT TAIL
OF DISTRIBUTION.>>CATHY.
>>I’M FASCINATED BY HOW TO EDUCATE USERS TO ALL OF THIS AND
WHO CAN COME TO CONFERENCES OR WHO WE PASSIVELY REVIEW PEER REVIEW
JOURNALS AND I’M TRYING TO THINK OF OTHER WAYS WHETHER IT’S A
NEWSLETTER OF THE AMERICAN STATISTICAL ASSOCIATION OR A
BLOG LIKE A PLAIN LANGUAGE LIKE A PEOPLE BLOG IN ONE OF THE
CENSUS BLOGS ABOUT HOW INCOME IS — WHAT YOU SAID WILL MAKE SENSE
TO REGULAR PEOPLE, RIGHT? RETIREMENT INCOME IS CHANGING
AND IT’S HARD TO UNDERSTAND HEALTH INSURANCE THINGS.
I’M TRYING TO THINK OF MORE DIFFUSE MECHANISMS TO GET IT
OUT. THE OTHER GROUP I THOUGHT OF IS
GRADUATE STUDENTS. PEOPLE THAT MIGHT BE — I DON’T
KNOW HOW TO GET TO THE GRADUATE PROGRAMS OR STUDENT ASSOCIATIONS
OR PROFESSORS OR OTHER PEOPLE THAT WOULD MISUSE THE DATA.
THIS SEEMS TO ME TOTALLY CLEARLY A BREAK IN SERIES.
AND IF PEOPLE — IF PEOPLE DECIDE TO USE IT CONTINUOUSLY
FOR WHATEVER PURPOSE THEY HAVE, THEY’LL AT LEAST MAKE THAT
DELIBERATELY KNOWING THE ISSUES.
I WAS THINKING WHO ARE THE MISSED USERS OF THE DATA.
THEY MAY NOT BE GETTING YOUR MESSAGE ABOUT THE PIECES.
AND THEN I WAS ALSO WONDERING IF YOU WERE WORKING ON — WE WENT
THROUGH THE HOME MORTGAGE DISCLOSURE ACTED DISCOULDN’T —
DISCONTINUITY AND LABELLING AND IS IT MISLABELLING OR INCOME AND
R.E.V. METHOD? I DON’T KNOW, AT LEAST TO SIGNAL
AS PEOPLE LOOK TO HISTORIC BECAUSE SOME
PEOPLE WON’T GO INTO THE FILES BUT PIECES OR A STANDARD NOTES
THAT YOU ENCOURAGE NEW RESEARCHERS TO USE?
I DON’T KNOW. I’M TRYING TO THINK ABOUT ALL
THE COMMUNICATION WAYS. THESE ARE SUCH CRITICAL NUMBERS
EVERYONE KNOWS AND USES AND ARE REPORTED IN THE MEDIA AND EVERY
DAY LIFE. THE WORK I AGREE, IT’S AMAZING
THAT WE’RE GETTING IT RIGHT BUT THERE’S MORE WORK
TO DO THAN JUST THE PEOPLE CRUNCHING THE NUMBERS AND I’M
EXCITED TO SEE HOW IT ROLLS OUT. I’M HAPPY TO GO BACK TO MY
COLLEAGUES AT THE URBAN INSTITUTE TO GET OTHER IDEAS
FROM THEM WHO I KNOW ARE AVID USERS OF THIS DATA AND PROBABLY
HAVE A LOT OF OPINIONS TOO.>>THANK YOU FOR THOSE COMMENTS.
WE’RE INVITING PEOPLE FROM URBAN TO MAY 13.
I THINK YOU HAD GREAT IDEAS WITH THE AMERICAN COUNTS AND THE MORE
PEDESTRIAN WAY OF EXPRESSING OF WHAT WE’RE DOING AND REACHING
INTO IMPUTATION. I THINK THAT’S A GREAT WAY.
IN TERMS OF GRADUATE STUDENTS I MENTIONED WE’LL GO TO THE
POPULATION ASSOCIATION OF AMERICA AND WE’LL HAVE PAPERS IN
THE SESSION AND TALK ABOUT USING OUR DATA AND ASK A SUBSTANTIVE
QUESTION AND PRIOR THEY HAVE A PRE-CONFERENCE WORKSHOP AND WE
HAVE A HALF DAY SESSION. I DON’T KNOW WHAT THE LAST
NUMBER OF ENROLLEES IS BUT GRADUATE STUDENTS WILL COME AND
FIND OUT MORE ABOUT USING THE DATA.
I THINK THE LAST POINT ABOUT LABELLING IS INCREDIBLY
IMPORTANT AND SOMETHING WE THOUGHT A LOT OF ABOUT ON THE
HEALTH INSURANCE SIDE WHICH I’M MORE FAMILIAR WITH AND ONE OF
THE REASONS WE CHANGED ALMOST ALL THE VARIABLES.
YOU CAN’T JUST RERUN THE SAME CODE USING THE FILE.
YOU’LL GET A BUNCH OF ERROR MESSAGES AND THAT’S BY DESIGN.
SO CONCEPT TO THINK ABOUT BEFORE USING THE OLD CODE.
EVEN IN REPORTS, I MENTIONED CATEGORIES OF PUBLIC AND PRIVATE
AND WE HISTORICALLY USED GOVERNMENT AND PRIVATE AND NOW
WE’RE USING PUBLIC AND PRIVATE TO SIGNAL THIS IS NOT THE SAME
CATEGORIES YOU’VE SEEN IN PREVIOUS REPORTS AND THERE’S A DIFFERENCE IN WHAT THOSE CONTAIN.
>>JAY WRIGHT. FIRST I HAD A QUESTION.
SORRY, YOU CHANGE THE SLIDE.
SHOULD THE SYSTEM BE CONSIDERED BREAKING SERIES AND IN LAY TERMS
THERE’S A BREAK IN THE SERIES BUT DOES IT HAVE A NORMAL SERIES
AND IF IT’S CONSIDERED A BREAK IN SERIES, DOES THE PROCESS JUMP
UP OR JUST MEAN THERE’S A BREAK IN THE SERIES?
I DON’T KNOW IF THERE’S AN OFFICIAL DEFINITION.
I KNOW FOR US WHEN WE CAME ACROSS THE INCOME BREAK WE HAD
TWO COMPARISONS AND ONE IS THE NAIVE COMPARISON AND THE OTHER
IS CORRECTING FOR THE DIFFERENCE WE SEE IN THE BREAK AND THE
UNCERTAINTY OF THAT DIFFERENCE WHEN WE’RE TRYING TO MAKE
COMPARISONS BECAUSE PEOPLE ARE VERY INTERESTED BECAUSE PEOPLE
ARE VERY INTERESTED IN THE DIFFERENCE FROM THE LAST HANDFUL
OF YEARS.>>AND THE LAST QUESTION OR
COMMENT AND THERE’S A CHANGE IN THE METHODOLOGY AND BECAUSE OF
THE DISCONTINUITY PEOPLE MAY WANT TO BE ABLE DURING A
TRANSITION PERIOD TO BE ABLE TO HAVE A SMOOTHER TRANSITION WHERE
THEY CAN GO BACK AND LOOK AT ESTIMATES IN THE OLD
UNIT AND IT SEEMS HAVE YOU THE ABILITY TO DO THAT GOING
FORWARD. YOU CAN PRODUCE THE OLDEST MATS.
YOU CAN TOP CODE IN THE OLD WAY OR IMPUTE IN THE OLD WAY AND DO
THAT FOR SOME WINDOW OF TIME OVER WHICH PEOPLE CAN ADAPT TO
THE METHODOLOGY. IS THAT OF USE?
IT SOUNDS LIKE YEAR DOING THAT ALREADY?
>>WE HAD A RELEASE BOTH WAYS AND LAST YEAR’S DATA WILL BE
RELIEVED IN THE NEXT COUPLE WEEKS.
GIVEN ON THE DATA AVAILABLE WE’RE NOT PLANNING TO PROCESS BOTH WAYS.
GOING BACK IN TIME IT SEEMS YOU’VE BUILT A CAL GRATION TO
GET THE OLDEST OLD ESTIMATES AND UNTIL YOU
CAN’T DO IT FURTHER BUT THAT’S SORT OF AVAILABLE GOING BACK A
WAYS? MAYBE I MISUNDERSTOOD?
>>WE HAD TWO YEARS OF OVERLAP.>>AND I THINK THE LAST
QUESTION, WHEN YOU GO BACK TO THE CHANGING QUESTIONNAIRE, WAS
THERE A CHANGE IN FRAME AT ABOUT THE SAME TIME OR IS THAT WHEN YOU WENT OVER?
>>I’M NOT AWARE OF THE CHANGE IN FRAME AT THAT TIME.
>>IT’S NOT THAT IMPORTANT.
YOU WERE TALKING ABOUT THE HEALTH INSURANCE UNIT OF PEOPLE
THAT COULD BE SHARING A PLAN FOR SOMETHING LIKE THAT.
THERE WAS SOME IMPUTATION RULE WHEN NO ONE REPORTED COVERAGE.
WHAT DO YOU DO THEN?>>YOU GET CONCEPTS WHEN NO ONE
REPORTS COVERAGE IN THAT HOUSEHOLD.
SO WE’RE TALKING ABOUT THE WAY WE CONSIDER HEALTH INSURANCE
UNITUNITS AND BEFORE IT MATCHED A PERSON TOWARDS THE
CHARACTERISTICS. NOW WE CONSTRUCT A HEALTH
INSURANCE UNIT BASED ON SHARING YOUR PLAN WITH YOUR PARENTS IF
YOU’RE UNDER 26 BUT NOT WITH YOUR SIBLING IF YOU’RE 40.
AND WE MATCH ON THE CHARACTERISTICS.
INSTEAD OF THINKING ABOUT THE PERSON, WE THINK WITH THE H.I.E. IN THE HOT DECK.
>>KEN SIMONSON. I HAVE A NUMBER OF QUESTIONS
ABOUT LESSONS LEARNED AND HOW TO IMPART LESSONS LEARNED.
WAS THERE A PROCESS TO LOOKING AT ALTERNATIVES FOR CHANGES YOU
MADE IN WHAT WAS BEING ASKED AND HOW IT WAS PROCESSED AND PRESENTED?
HAVE YOU LEARNED SOME THINGS THAT WOULD BE USEFUL TO THE
COUNTER PARTS IN THE CENSUS BUREAU AND HOW DO YOU
COMMUNICATE WHAT WENT RIGHT OR WHAT YOU SHOULDN’T BE DOING AND THIRD, WERE THERE
THINGS YOU CONSIDERED OR DROPPED, ETCETERA, YOU’D STILL
WANT TO KEEP AVAILABLE FOR CONSIDERING THE NEXT TIME YOU’RE
GOING TO DO REVISIONS IN THIS?
>>FOR LESSONS LEARNS THE BEST MEANS OF COMMUNICATING THAT IS
WE PUT OUT BOTH AT THE TIME OF THE INITIAL REDESIGN AND NOW
PUTTING OUT PAPERS ABOUT WHAT WE’VE DONE AND WHY.
IN TERMS OF THINGS CONSIDERED AND THERE’S LOTS OF AVENUES WE
CAN EXPLORE BUT LIMITED RESOURCE TO EXPLORE THEM SO BIGGER HAUL
OF THE IMPUTATION SYSTEM AND THINGS I’D LIKE TO PURSUE BUT
WE’RE STILL DOING ACTIVE RESEARCH TRYING TO FIGURE OUT
AND WE HAVE WORKING PAPERS RELATED TO OTHER WAYS TO IMPROVE
THE DATA THAT’S ONGOING TO THE WORK WE’RE DOING.
>>AND BEFORE THE QUESTIONNAIRE WAS CHANGED IT WAS BASED ON A
DECADE OF RESEARCH. THERE WAS FIELD TESTING,
COGNITIVE TESTING. THE USUAL SET OF RIGOROUS
DECISION MAKING. THROUGHOUT THE PROCESS WE TRIED
TO ENGAGE STAKEHOLDERS TO GET FEEDBACK AND ALSO HAVE BEEN
DOING EVALUATION. I CAN SPEAK TO IN THINKING ABOUT
THE MONTHLY LEVEL HEALTH INSURANCE USING TO CONSTRUCT
ESTIMATES AND I DID BENCHMARKED AGAINST THE SURVEY WHICH IS RUN BY H.H.S.,
HEALTH AND HUMAN SERVICES.
WE’RE PLANNING ADDITIONAL PROCEDURES TO MAKE SURE WE CAN
EXPRESS WHAT WE’VE DONE IN A WAY THAT’S CLEAR AND BENCHMARKED
AGAINST OTHERS’ WORK.>>IN TERMS OF SHARING
INFORMATION, LESSONS LEARNED WITH COLLEAGUES, A WORKING PAPER
IS A FAIRLY FORMAL WAY OF DOING IT.
I HOPE YOU’VE HAD INFORMAL DISCUSSIONS ALSO.
AND HAVING CONSENSUS OPERATE THROUGH SILOS BUT THERE’S NOT
BEEN AS MUCH AS CROSS-FERTILIZATION OF IDEAS
WE’VE BEEN ABLE TO BENEFIT FROM SO I HOPE YOU’VE DONE THAT IN AN
IN FORMAL WAY.>>I CAN’T THINK OF THE NAME OFF
THE TOP OF MY HEAD BUT THERE WAS AN A GROUP I PRESENTED AT FROM
FORMAL WAY.>>I CAN’T THINK OF THE NAME OFF
THE TOP OF MY HEAD BUT THERE WAS AN A GROUP I PRESENTED AT FROM
EARLIER WORK AND WE’VE DONE MORE INFORMAL BROWN BAGGING.
>>AND IN THE STATISTICS DIVISION WHICH OUR BRANCH
REALIZE ON SUBJECT MATTER NOT BASED ON SURVEY.
IT’S NOT JUST C.P.S. FOLKS WORKING ON HEALTH INSURANCE WE
WORK ON HEALTH INSURANCE CONTENT.
THERE’S INTERNAL CROSS FERTILIZATION BASED ON CONTENT.>>GREAT.
>>THIS COMES WITH PRESS RELEASES, DOESN’T IT?
IN THE PRESS RELEASES DON’T WE TRY TO DESCRIBE THIS?
>>I KNOW WHEN WE RELEASE THE RESEARCH FILE IN JANUARY, IT WAS
PUT ON THE P.I.O. TIP SHE’D AND THERE WAS AN ANNOUNCEMENT OUR
DIVISION CHIEF SENT OUT TO THE MEDIA.
I THINK THAT HAS BEEN PART OF THE OUTREACH AS FAR AS I KNOW.
>>WHEN THE REDESIGN INITIALLY WAS DONE WAS IN THE PRESENTATION
OF THE PRESS AND THIS YEAR’S RELEASE IN SEPTEMBER ALSO SO
THAT’S ANOTHER WAY THAT’S MORE PUBLIC COMMUNICATION OF THESE CHANGES.
>>BASED ON THE CONVERSATION YESTERDAY WE WERE TALKING ABOUT
THE A.C.S. USER GUIDES, WHICH ARE FANTASTIC, BY THE WAY, AND
PREVIOUSLY WE TALKED ABOUT CHANGES IN HOW QUESTIONS GET
ASKED TO MEASURE BUSINESS’S USE OF TECHNOLOGY.
THINGS ARE CHANGING QUICKLY IN OUR COUNTRY AND YOU MAY NEED TO
MAKE MORE CHANGES TO THE SURVEY. THE CENSUS MAY WANT A DEFINITION
FOR WHAT A BREAK IN SERIES IS AND PROTOCOLS FOR IDENTIFYING
USERS AND IDENTIFYING APPROPRIATE COMMUNICATIONS WITH
THOSE USERS BECAUSE IT MIGHT HAPPEN A LOT IN THE FUTURE.
>>A QUICK SUGGESTION IS TO REACH OUT TO STATE AND LOCAL
HEALTH OFFICIAL. THERE MAY BE USERS THAT DON’T
GO TO CONFERENCES.
>>IS THIS MARIO MARATZI AND A COUPLE THOUGHTS NO THINK ABOUT.
STARTING WITH ALLISON’S POINT, I WAS THINKING THE SAME THING.
THIS IS NOT SOMETHING THAT JUST MIGHT COME ALONG BUT IT COMES
ALONG ALL THE TIME AND IT’S HARD TO ANSWER THE QUESTION IF WE
DON’T KNOW WHAT WE’RE REFERRING TO AS A BREAK IN THE SERIES.
DO WE MEAN THE CENSUS BUREAU WILL NOT PUT UP A CHART WITH A
LINE CHART CONNECTING DOTS. AND ARE THERE SEPARATE DISCONNECTED THOUGHTS.
WILL WE DESCRIBE THE CHANGES IN METHODOLOGY AND WE’LL USE THE
WORD, THERE’S A BREAK. I DON’T THINK ANYONE WOULD
DISAGREE WITH PUTTING DOCUMENTATION ON THE CHANGES MADE.
AND I’M AFRAID I DON’T HAVE ENOUGH INFORMATION TO HELP YOU
ANSWER IT. I WANT TO HEAR YOU SAY IT OUT
LOUD. FIRST, I THINK IT’S CLEAR
HEARING YOU BOTH THAT ONE SIZE DOES NOT FIT ALL.
PERHAPS HAVE YOU A BREAK IN HEALTH INSURANCE BUT NOT A BREAK
IN INCOME. I THINK IT’S GOING TO DEPEND ON
THE PARTICULAR CHARACTERISTICS ON THE SORTS OF QUESTIONS I’LL
ASK NOW. WHAT SORT OF CHANGES DID YOU DO
THE METHODOLOGY. YOU’VE BEEN GOOD ABOUT ANSWERING
THAT. ONE QUESTION THAT’S NEEDED AND
TAKEN INTO ACCOUNT. SECOND, HOW FAR BACK DO YOU HAVE
CONSISTENT TIME SERIES? I DON’T HAVE IT CLEAR, THE
SURVEY STARTED IN THE ’60s. I KNOW THE INCOME MEASURES ARE
VERY IMPORTANT. I THINK THEY ALSO HAVE AN
IMPLICATION FOR POVERTY RATES WHICH ARE MORE IMPORTANT.
FROM A USER PERSPECTIVE, BREAKS IN THE OFFICIAL POVERTY RATE
WOULD BE A CONCERN. TO THE EXTENT THAT WOULD BE
MINIMIZED THE HOOPLA WE CREATE BY SAYING THINGS ARE DIFFERENT,
THAT MIGHT BE A GOOD THING TO DO FOR THE USER WITHOUT LIMITING
THE DOCUMENTATION WE HAVE TO PROVIDE.
SOMETHING THE B.L.S. DOES QUITE A BIT ESPECIALLY WITH THE C.P.I.
IS TO CREATE THE RESEARCH SERIES WHERE YOU USE THE NEW
METHODOLOGY AND TRY TO IMPOSE IT ON THE OLD DATA TO TRY TO CREATE
A COMPARABLE TIME SERIES AND HOW FAR BACK DOES THAT STRATEGY WORK
FOR YOU AND MY FAVORITE, LET’S PUBLIC TWO NUMBERS FOR THE SAME
TIME PERIOD AND LET THE USER CREATE THE FIRST DIFFERENCES APPROACH WHICH IS
NEVER PERFECT BUT LET’S THE USERS HAVE A WAY OUT.
I’D NEED ANSWER TO BE ABLE TO ANSWER YOUR QUESTION ABOUT BREAKS.
>>AND NEITHER THE REDESIGNED QUESTIONNAIRE OR THE NEW EDITS
IS THERE A STATISTICALLY DIFFERENCE ACROSS TWO SAYS OF GROUPS.
IT’S NOT THE FIRST TIME THE SURVEY’S BEEN REDESIGNED WHERE
IN THE PAST WE HAVE NOT TREATED IT AS A BREAK IN SERIES.
IT DOESN’T MEAN THERE’S NO SUBGROUPS FOR WHICH THERE WASN’T
A SIGNIFICANT DIFFERENCE. WE’RE TESTING AT THE 90%
CONFIDENCE LEVEL SO YOU’LL GET SOME SIGNIFICANT DIFFERENCES
WHEN THERE MAY NOT HAVE BEEN.
WHAT WE HAVE AN EFFECTIVE SERIES AND DOING AN ADJUSTMENT ON THE TIME
DIFFERENCE AND WE’RE MAKE ASSUMPTIONS ABOUT THE DIFFERENCE
BETWEEN THE OLD AND NEW METHOD IN THE YEARS WE ANALYZED BUT IT
DOESN’T MEAN IT WOULD HAVE BEEN TRUE IN THE PAST.
THE ASSUMPTION GETS STRONGER THE FURTHER YOU GET FROM THE DATA
YOU HAVE TO EVALUATE BUT THEY’RE ALL PERFECT WAYS TO BRIDGE THE
CHANGES IN SURVEYS. WE TRY TO PUT OUT AS MUCH AS
INFORMATION AS WE CAN AND LET USERS KNOW ABOUT THE
ASSUMPTIONS BUT IN PART IT’S WHAT PEOPLE COME TO US FOR
THE DATA TO DO.>>I THINK YOU MAKE A GOOD
POINT. FOR HEALTH INSURANCE THERE’S A BREAK IN SERIES.
IT WON’T BE BEFORE ESTIMATES IN 2014C.P.S.
>>WONDERFUL. MARIO MARATZI.
ALLISON, AS WE HEAR THE DISCUSSION IT SEEMS CLEAR MAYBE
THIS SAY TOPIC FOR CSAC TO THINK OF PROTOCOLS FOR
BIG BREAKS. IT’S A BIG DEAL IN THE BUILD SOG
I’D GET THEIR INPUT BECAUSE IT’S A HUGE UNDERTAKING AND I’M SURE
I’M NOT THE FIRST TO PROPOSE IT.
DID YOU GUYS SAY THERE WOULD BE STATISTICALLY SIGNIFICANT CHANGE
IN THE NATIONAL POVERTY RATE?
>>IT’S NOT STATISTICALLY DIFFERENT IF YOU LOOK AT 2016
AND ’17 WITH THE EDITING CHANGE THE DIFFERENCE IS NOT
STATISTICALLY DIFFERENT EITHER.>>THANK YOU VERY MUCH FOR THAT.
JUST WANTED TO MAKE SURE SOME TECHNICAL POINTS
ON HEALTH INSURANCE. THERE’S SEASONAL PATTERNS IN HEALTH INSURANCE COVERAGE.
YOU MENTIONED NOW YOU HAVE SUBANNUAL COVERAGE MEASURES.
ONE QUESTION IS CAN YOU PROVIDE AN EXAMPLE FOR WHAT YOU MEAN SUB
ANNUAL COVERAGE MEASURE?>>WE COLLECT INFORMATION IN THE
QUESTIONNAIRE ON THE MONTHLY LEVEL YOU INDICATE THE LEVEL AND
YOU CHECK ALL THE MONTHS THAT APPLY.
RIGHT NOW WE’RE ONLY RELEASING TO THE PUBLIC A VERSION THAT
SAID NONE, SOME, ALL.
WE STILL NEED TO LOOK AT A MEANINGFUL DIFFERENCE IN SEEING
IF SOMEONE IS COVERED AND CAN WE PROTECT CONFIDENTIALITY
BECAUSE THERE’S TERRITORY WHERE WE WORRY ABOUT EXPOSURE RISK.
WE COLLECT IT AT THE MONTHLY LEVEL AND USE MONTH ESTIMATES.
IN TERMS OF RELEASE.>>SO YOU WON’T RELEASE MONTHLY
DATA?>>AND IT’S WEIGHTED TO THE
POPULATION OF THE COLLECTION YEAR.
IT WOULD TAKE WORK TO THINK ABOUT WHAT THAT MEANS.
THOSE ARE MY QUESTIONS, THANK YOU.
>>THAT’S A GREAT CONVERSATION. I THINK WE FINISHED 10 MINUTES
EARLY.>>YES, WE MUCH JONATHAN AND EDWARD AND THE
DISCUSSION AND EVERYONE. SHOULD WE BREAK NOW AND COME
BACK AT 10:30? WE THAT CLOCK.
NOT THAT CLOCK, THIS CLOCK.>>10:40.
>>SO PEOPLE COULD START WRITING UP THEIR RECOMMENDATIONS BASED
ON THE TWO CONVERSATIONS WOULD THAT WORK?
WE HAVE A LITTLE TIME? YES.
>>20 MINUTES.>>ALLISON DO YOU WANT TO GIVE
PEOPLE STYLE GUIDANCE ON RECOMMENDATIONS.
IF YOU WOULD, TRY TO AVOID SAYING WE RECOMMEND AND SAY CCAC RECOMMENDS.
I THINK THAT IS ENOUGH. THAT’S HELPFUL.
THANKS.>>TOMMY WRIGHT. THE COMMITTEE IS BACK IN SESSION
NEAR 10:40. WE WILL NOW HAVE PRESENTATIONS
FROM LISA DONALDSON AND SHELLY KARLSSON ON
INTERNET AND SELF-RESPONSE EXPERIENCE.
I CAN REMIND YOU THAT WE WILL LIKELY HAVE THE POLLS FOR THE
PUBLIC COMMENT DURING THIS SESSION.
I THINK SHEILA’S PRESENTING.
>>FIRST OF ALL, THANK YOU FOR HAVING US HERE TODAY.
MY NAME IS SHELLY KARLSSON WE’RE RESPONSIBLE FOR INTERNET
ACTIVITIES IN THE CENSUS BUREAU AND I PLAN TO GIVE YOU AN
OVERVIEW OF THE DATA COLLECTION SYSTEM WE’LL USE FOR THE
ECONOMIC CONSENSUS. IT’S THE BIGGEST PROGRAM IN OUR DIRECTDIRECTORATE AND HAS
175,000 MULTI-LOCATION BUSINESSES.
I MEAN THEY HAVE TWO OR MORE LOCATIONS.
IT’S THE MOST COMPREHENSIVE MEASUREMENT OF THE ECONOMIC
PROVIDINGPROVIDING STATISTICS ON MEASUREMENTS CONSISTENT AND
COMPREHENSIBLE AND ACROSS GEOGRAPHIC AREAS.
WE CONDUCT THE CENSUS EVERY YEARS IN YEARS ENDING IN TWO AND
SEVEN AND WE DID PROVIDE A PAPER OPTION TO OUR ISLAND AREAS
HOWEVER, ALL THE STATESIDE LOCATIONS WERE COLLECTED ELECTRONICALLY.
THE FOUR SYSTEMS USED FOR THE ECON CENSUS WERE THE RESPONDENT
PORTAL AND C.R.N. TOOL, THE CONTENT METADATA SYSTEM COMET
AND THE PROGRAM CENTURION. FIRST I’LL TALK ABOUT THE
RESPONDENT PORTAL. IN EARLY 2017 WE INTRODUCED THIS
AS A CENTRAL PORTAL TO MANAGE SURVEYS IN ONE PLACE.
WE USED ONE WEB ADDRESS FOR ALL SURVEYS WHEREAS IN THE PAST WE
HAD MULTIPLE URLs FOR DIFFERENT SURVEY INSTRUMENTS.
IT CAN ADD MULTIPLE SURVEYS TO THIS COUNTY AND CAN COMMUNICATE
TO SECURE MESSAGING. IN THE PAST WE HAD MULTIPLE
SYSTEMS TO PERFORM THE FUNCTIONALITY.
AND THEY CAN GO THROUGH THE RESPONDENT PORTAL WITHOUT ADDING
ADDITIONAL CREDENTIALS.
IN ADDITION TO THE ECON CENSUS USING THE TOOL, IDEALLY ONCE WE
MIGRATE OUR SURVEYS IT WILL BE A ONE-STOP SURE HAVE A FOR ALL
ECONOMIC RESPONDENTS. AND WE OFFER A UNIQUE 12 DIGIT
CODE. A RESPONDENT WILL GET ONE FOR
EACH SURVEY THEY’RE ASKED TO PARTICIPATE IN.
THIS IS THE RESPONDENT PORTAL. RESPONDENTS HAVE THE OPTION TO
SIGN IN OR REGISTER FOR A NEW ACCOUNT IF THEY DON’T HAVE ONE
YET. IN ORDER TO REGISTER, WE ASK FOR THEIR FIRST
NAME, LAST NAME AND TELEPHONE NUMBER AND RESPONDENTS ARE
REQUIRED TO ANSWER FIVE SECURITY QUESTIONS THEY’LL USE IF THEY
FORGET THEIR PASSWORD. IF THEY ARE UNABLE TO ANSWER THE
SECURITY QUESTIONS UPON PASSWORD RESET WE PROVIDE AN OPTION TO
GET AN E-MAIL LINK TO RESET THE PASSWORD.
THE PASSWORDS EXPIRE NEVER 90 DAYS AND ONCE THEY COMPLETE THE
REGISTRATION THEY’LL GET A CONFIRMATION TO THE E-MAIL
ADDRESS THEY USED TO REGISTER THEM.
WE’VE HAD HALF A MILLION ACCOUNTS REGISTER THROUGH THIS
PORTAL INCLUDING ALL 12 SURVEYS PLUS THE ECON CONSENSUS.
I WILL NOTE WE’RE SEEING SOME RESPONDENTS
STRUGGLING WITH THE SECURITY REQUIREMENTS THE COMPLEXITY OF
THE PASS WORDS THE FACT THEY EXPIRE EVERY 90 DAYS AND THE
PROCESS SURROUNDING COMPLETING AND USING THE SECURITY QUESTIONS
TO RESET THEIR PASS WORDS.
ONCE THEY SIGN IN, THEY’LL HAVE SURVEY CARDS.
THEY’LL SHOW UP AFTER EVERY AUTHENTICATION CODE THAT GETS
ENTERED. OVER ON THE RIGHT YOU’LL SEE
THEY HAVE THE OPTION TO ENTER A NEW AUTHENTICATION CODE WHEN
THEY RECEIVE A NEW SURVEY PARTICIPATION LETTER AND
ACCOUNTANTS MAY HAVE THE SAME SURVEY CARD BUT FOR DIFFERENT
BUSINESS. WHEN THE COLLECTION PERIOD
CLOSES, WE HAVE A HISTORY TAB AND THE RESPONDENT WILL BE ABLE
TO SEE THEY WERE ABLE TO PROVIDE INFORMATION FOR A PRIOR SURVEY
HOWEVER THE RESPONSES WOULD NOT BE SAVED IN THE SYSTEM.
THEY’D HAVE TO REQUEST THAT THROUGH A SECURE MESSAGE ALSO
THROUGH THE PORTAL THE SURVEY CARD HAS A SURVEY NAME AND DUE
DATE, THE COMPANY NAME AND I.D. THIS REPORT NOW WHICH IS THE
SINGLE ACCESS TO THE CENTURION REPORTING TOOLS AND THEY CAN
REQUEST A TIME EXTENSION IF THE SURVEY ALLOWS FOR TIME EXTENSION
AND CHECK THEIR FILING STATUS, USE SURVEY F.A.Q.s, SEND FOR
SURVEY SUPPORT AND WE HAVE AN 800 NUMBER IF THEY FEEL THEY
NEED TO CALL AND THE BUTTON IS A LINK TO THE SERVICE WEBSITE TO
PROVIDE MORE INFORMATION ABOUT THE SURVEYS THEY’RE BEING ASKED
TO COMPLETE. I’D MENTIONED THE REPORT NOW
FUNCTIONALITY WHICH IS THE SINGLE SIGN-ON TO SEN TOUR ON.
— CENTURION. THIS SHOWS THE LANDING PAGE
THEY’LL END UP ON AT CENTURION ONCE THEY HIT REPORT NOW.
THE SHARE SURVEY ACCESS FUNCTIONALITY ALLOWS USERS TO
SHARE TO DELEGATE TO OTHERS WITHIN THEIR COMPANY.
THIS IS THE ONLY WAY USERS CAN SHARE ACCESS SINCE THE
AUTHENTICATION CODE WE PROVIDE THEM IS ONE-TIME USE ONLY.
AFTER THEY ENTER THE E-MAIL ADDRESS THEY
CAN ADD A NOTE, PLEASE HELP ME ON ONE THROUGH 10 AND THEY’LL
GET INSTRUCTIONS ON HOW TO CREATE AN ACCOUNT OR LOG INTO
THEIR ALREADY EXISTING ACCOUNT. THE FUNCTIONALITY ALLOWS THEM TO
PASS THIS TO THE NEXT PERSON RATHER THAN CREATING A NEW
ACCOUNT FOR A COMPANY. ONE THING I WANTED TO MENTION,
THE DELEGATES HAVE FULL ACCESS TO THE SURVEY.
THEY CAN ALSO ADD ADDITIONAL DELEGATES IF THEY NEED TO.
THEY HAVE THE SAME ACCESS AS THE PERSON WHO DELEGATED TO THEM.
RESPONDENTS CAN NOW COMMUNICATE WITH CENSUS REPRESENTATIVES AND
IF THEY WANT TO SEND A MESSAGE OR CHOOSE TO ADD ATTACHMENTS.
WE ALSO ASK THEM TO SELECT FROM PREDEFINED TOPICS.
THIS ALLOWS US TO PROPERLY ROUTE THE MESSAGE FROM THE CENSUS
BUREAU AND PRESENT AN FAQ ON THE SPOT TO ANSWER THEIR MESSAGE
BEFORE THEY HAVE TO SEND IT. SO NOW I’LL TRANSITION TO THE
INTERNAL APPLICATION THAT SUPPORTS THE PORTAL WHICH IS OUR
MANAGEMENT TOOL. THIS TOOL WAS BUILT WITH A FOCUS
ON CUSTOMER SERVICE AND DATA COLLECTION WHERE IN THE PAST A
LOT OF THE TOOLS USED BY CUSTOMER SUPPORT AREAS WERE
SHARED WITH DATA ANALYSIS AND PROCESSING.
THE TOOL WAS BUILT SPECIFICALLY FOR THE CUSTOMER SUPPORT AREAS.
IT’S USED BY INTERVIEWERS AND ANALYSTS AT HEADQUARTERS AN IN
ADDITION TO THE ECON CENSUS WE HAVE OTHER SURVEYS CURRENTLY
SUPPORTED THROUGH THIS TOOL. SOME HIGHLIGHTS THAT I’LL TALK
ABOUT, ORGANIZATIONAL SEARCH WHICH IS A 360 VIEW OF THE
COMPANY. SECURE MESSAGING FUNCTIONALITY I
MENTIONED AND INBOUND AND OUTBOUND CALLS AND THE ABILITY
TO HAVE ECON PROGRAMS.
AND THERE’LL BE ONE TOOL TO USE. THE TOOL IS ALSO BEING USED
ACROSS THEENT ENTERPRISE THE ENTERPRISE AND THE CENSUS
PROGRAM YOU HEARD ABOUT THIS MORNING.
I MENTIONED THE ORG SEARCH. WE HAVE A CONTEXT TAB.
AND THERE’S OTHER ORGANIZATIONAL CONTACTS SUCH AS FROM
CONFERENCES, COMPANY VISITS AS WELL AS PHONE CALL.
A DROP DOWN ALLOWS TO YOU SELECT CONTACTS FOR OTHER SURVEY WHICH
IS IS HELPFUL IF YOU’RE TRYING TO FIND A CONTACT FOR YOUR
PARTICULAR SURVEY. WE HAVE ALL THE INTERACTIONS
STORED IN THIS TOOL AND AUDIT TRAIL OF ALL INTERACTIONS
INCLUDING INBOUND AND OUTBOUND PHONE CALLS AND REQUESTS AN SXUR
MESSAGES. IT’S ALL INTERACTIONS IN ONE
SINGLE TOOL WHICH IS SOMETHING WE DO NOT HAVE BEFORE.
AND WE HAVE INSTRUCTIONS, QUESTION, CONTENT, RESPONSE
VARIABLES AND ATTRIBUTE AND THE LAYOUTS OF QUESTIONS BASED ON
PRE DEFINED TEMPLATES AND PATTERNS.
BENEFITS OF THE CENTURION SOLUTION.
IT’S WIDELY USED ACROSS THE CENSUS BUREAU RIGHT NOW BUT MOST
THE INSTRUMENT HARD CODED.>>THIS IS TARA DUNLAP JACKSON.
FOLKS ON THE LINE PLEASE MUTE YOUR PHONE.
>>I WAS SAYING A LOT OF THE APPLICATIONS TO THE CENSUS
BUREAU RIGHT NOW ARE HARD CODED BUT THE SOLUTION OFFERS TO
DYNAMICALLY RENDER THE SURVEY CONTENT WHICH IS GREAT FOR EN
DURING BETWEEN PATHS AND FOR THE ECON CENSUS WE HAD INDUSTRY
SPECIFIC PATHS AND MANY HAD QUESTIONS AND THE ANALYST COULD
ENTER ONCE AND SHARE IT BETWEEN PATHS.
IT ALSO ALLOWS FOR RESPONSE-DRIVEN INSTRUMENT.
WE CAN PUT BRANCHING AND SKIP PATTERNS AND THE CHANGES ARE
RENDERED NIGHTLY. AN ANALYST CAN MAKE A CHANGE AND
SPECIFY IT BE RENDERED FOR THE NEXT MORNING AND THE CHANGES ARE
THERE FOR THEM THE NEXT DAY. THE SOLUTION ALSO PROVIDED A
FULLY ONLINE ELECTRONIC INSTRUMENT OPPOSED TO THE
DOWNLOADABLE SOFTWARE WE USED IN PAST CENSUSS. — CENSUSES.
AND THEY’RE TAKING TO THE REPORTING DASHBOARD TO VIEW THE
SURVEYS THEY’RE ASKED TO COMPLETE.
THIS SPECIFIC EXAMPLE IS A MULTILOCATION COMPANY AND
THERE’S MULTIPLE FORMS WE ASK THEM TO COMPLETE.
THE NAVIGATION BAR ACROSS THE TOP SHOWS THE RESPOND JECT —
RESPONDENT WHERE THEY ARE AND THEY CAN VIEW A PDF OF THEIR
SURVEY AND GO WITH A SURVEY VIEW OPTION AND MULTILOCATION OPTIONS AND WE HAVE LINK TO HELP
AND TUTORIALS TO SHOW DIFFERENT FUNCTIONALITY IN THE SYSTEM.
WE KNOW RESPONDENTS WANT TO KNOW WHAT THEY’RE GOING TO BE ASKED
AND HAVE A WORK SHEET. WHAT WE WANT TO PREVENT IS
RESPONDENTS PUTTING THE DATA ON IT AND USING IT AS A PAPER FORM
TO SEND BACK TO US. SO THIS IS THE SURVEY VIEW IN
SEN TOUR ONAND THE RESPONSE — CENTURION AND THIS TAKE THE
RESPONDENT TO A PARTICULAR LOCATION.
AND THIS ALLOWS FOR RESPONDENTS TO JUMP BACK AND FORTH BETWEEN
QUESTIONS THEY ANSWERED AND THE LAYOUT IS EN DERRED RENDERED FROM THE COMMENT SYSTEM.RENDERED
FROM THE COMMENT SYSTEM.
WE HAVE WARNINGS AND WHAT THE TEXT OF THAT WERE OR WARNING
SHOULD BE. THE TEXT AT THE TOP SHOWS AN
EXAMPLE OF AN ERROR DUE TO A FAILED EDIT.
THE BOTTOM SHOWS AN EXAMPLE OF A WARNING.
THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE TWO IS ULTIMATELY AT SUBMISSION, THE
RESPONDENT WILL NOT BE ABLE TO SUBMIT IF THEY HAVE ERRORS BUT
WILL IF THEY ARE WARNINGS. THEY’LL BE ABLE TO SEE THE
REVIEW SCREEN WHERE THEY’LL BE HELD UP DUE TO ERRORS.
SO I MENTIONED THE SPREAD SHEET REPORTING POPULATION THIS IS
AVAILABLE FOR USERS WITH MULTIPLE LOCATIONS AN THEY CAN
REPORT FROM MULTIPLE LOCATIONS AT ONE TIME AND USERS CAN TAKE
IMPORTANT DATA FROM THEIR DATABASE TO OUR SPREAD SHEETS
AND UPLOAD TO CENTURION TO SAVE TIME AND SOME ARE LARGE AND
COMPLEX. WE HAVE SOME WITH OVER 15,000
LOCATIONS. OBVIOUSLY THEY NEED A TOOL LIKE
THIS TO REPORT RATHER THAN IT’S NOT FEASIBLE TO GO THROUGH THE
SURVEY FORM BY FORM. SO WE DO HAVE SOME EDITS THAT
RUN UPON UPLOAD. THE POP UP WILL NOTIFY THE USER
IF WE HAVE VALUES WE NEEDED TO CHANGE OR NOT UPLOADED DUE TO
ERRORS. SO I MENTIONED BEFORE THE REVIEW
SCREEN, RESPONDENTS WILL BE SHOWED OUTSTANDING ERRORS OR
WARNINGS THEY HAVE. THE GREEN FIX BUTTON ON THE LEFT
ALLOWS THEM TO JUMP BACK TO THE SCREEN WHERE THE ERROR OR
WARNING SO THEY CAN FIX THAT INFORMATION PRIOR TO SUBMISSION.
THIS IS THE SUBMISSION SCREEN. IT PRE SELECTS SURVEYS COMPLETED
WITH NO ERRORS. THE RESPONDENT CAN COMPLETE
SURVEYS INDIVIDUALLY OR AT ONCE OR SUBMIT MULTIPLE TIMES IF CHANGES ARE NEEDED.
ONCE THE MISSION IS COMPLETE THE RESPONDENT WILL GET SHOWN WHAT
HAS BEEN SUBMITTED AND WHAT STILL NEEDS TO BE SUBMITTED AND
THEY CAN BRING UP A PDF OF THEIR RESPONSES AND THERE’S A LINK TO
THE SURVEY WEBSITE. IT SHOWS THEM TO THE WEBSITE
WITH PREVIOUSLY RELEASED STATISTIC AND OTHER INFORMATION
ABOUT CENSUS BUREAU STATISTICS. WE’RE CLOSING OUT OUR ECON
CENSUS OPERATIONS TODAY AND WE HAD A LITTLE OVER 2.7 MILLION
RESPONSES THROUGH THIS TOOL FOR THE 2017 ECON CENSUS.
I MENTION THE RESPONSE PDF AVAILABLE TO USERS AFTER THEY
REPORTED. IT ALLOWS THEM TO PRINT OR SAVE ELECTRONICALLY FOR THEIR
RECORDS. THESE ARE THE QUESTIONS WE HAVE
FOR THE COMMITTEE I THINK WE’LL TALK ABOUT IN A MOMENT.
THANK YOU VERY MUCH.>>GREAT.>>SO I KNOW WE’RE GOING HAVE TO
STOP IN A COUPLE MINUTES FOR THE — SO, FIRST I WANTED TO
THANK SHELLY AND LISA. THIS WAS A LOT OF MATERIAL TO
COVER IN A SHORT AMOUNT OF TIME AND THANK YOU FOR BEING CONCISE AND VERY INFORMATIVE.
TO REITERATE THE CONTEXT, WE’RE TALKING ABOUT A SWITCH IN THE
MODE IN WHICH PEOPLE RESPOND AND WHENEVER HAVE YOU A CHANGE IN
THE WAY PEOPLE DO THINGS WHETHER IT’S TECHNOLOGY OR PAPER,
THERE’S ALWAYS GOING TO BE RESISTANCE.
I SEE IT IN STUDENTS WHEN SNAPCHAT CHANGES THEIR INTERFACE
THERE’LL BE A RESPONSE. TIME WILL MAKE THINGS BETTER AS
PEOPLE BECOME USED TO THE NEW MEDIUM.
THAT’S NATURAL. WE’LL GET IN THE POSITIVES IN A
SEC BUT IT’S NOT JUST ABOUT THE ECONOMIC CENSUS THERE’S OTHER
SURVEYS BEING DELIVERED AS WELL. I THINK IT’S AN IMPORTANT MOVE
IN TERMS OF PROVIDING ONE LOCATION FOR EVERYTHING I’LL
TALK ABOUT WHY THAT’S A VERY STRONG POSITIVE.
THERE’S A LETTER RECEIVED REQUESTING INFORMATION IN THE
SURVEY. THAT COULD BE HELPFUL IN TERMS
OF SECURITY. I THINK THAT’S ANOTHER GOOD
FEATURE OF THE DESIGN. AND OVERALL IT’S A GREAT
OPPORTUNITY FOR SAVINGS AND GREATER GREATER SPEED ACCURACY
AND RESPOND ENT — RESPONDENT INTERACTION.
>>IT’S NOW TIME FOR PUBLIC COMMENT.
FORGIVE ME FOR INTERRUPTING. WE TAKE PUBLIC COMMENT IN
WRITING AND BY PHONE AND THEY’RE IN TWO MINUTES ANYTHING OVER
THAT MAY BE SUBMITTED IN WRITING FOR THE RECORD.
IF YOU’RE FOLLOWING VIRTUALLY AND WOULD LIKE TO MAKE A
COMMENT, PLEASE DIAL, 1-800-369-3137. THAT’S 1-800-369-3137.
AND THE CODE OR PASSWORD IS 5000542.
LET ME REPEAT THAT, 5000542 FOLLOWED BY THE
NUMBER SIGN.>>MY APOLOGIES, TOMMY, IT COULD
BE MY TYPO.>>IT’S 5000542 FOLLOWED BY THE
NUMBER SIGN. AND I’LL GIVE YOU TIME TO DIAL
IN AND ASK FOR THOSE LAST. WE HAVE RECEIVED FIVE WRITE-INS.
WRITTEN SUBMISSIONS WERE RECEIVED FROM GEORGE WASHINGTON
INSTITUTE OF PUBLIC POLICY. STEVE PEARSON, NO AFFILIATION,
AMANDA PEREZ, THE ORGANIZATION IS ZERO TO THREE.
NOW, DO WE HAVE ANYONE WHO WOULD LIKE TO MAKE A COMMENT IN THE
ROOM PRESENT? IF SO, PLEASE PROCEED TO THE
TABLE THERE ON THE SIDE OF THE ROOM NEAREST THE DOORS LABELLED
PUBLIC COMMENT. I UNDERSTAND THERE’S ONE PERSON
AT LEAST WHO IS THERE AND COMING FORWARD.
BEFORE MAKING YOUR COMMENT, PLEASE STATE YOUR NAME AND AFFILIATION CLEARLY.
>>HI, MY NAME IS AMANDA PEREZ AND I’M HERE FROM ZERO TO THREE
A NATIONAL NONPROFIT WHO’S MISSION IS TO ENSURE ALL BABIES
AND TODDLERS GET A STRONG START IN LIFE.
FOR AN ACTIVE MEMBER OF THE COUNT ALL KIDS COMMITTEE THE
NATIONAL COMPLETE COUNT COMMITTEE FOR YOUNG CHILDREN.
THE CONSENSUS IS NOT ONLY A CRUCIAL DATA SOURCE FOR OUR WORK
IT DEFINES THE ALLOCATION AND AVAILABILITY OF A CENTRAL
RESOURCES FOR VERY YOUNG CHILDREN AND THEIR FAMILIES
ACROSS THE COUNTRY. AS YOU KNOW IN 2010, THE YOUNG
CHILDREN HAVE A HIGHER NET UNDERCOUNT THAN ANY OTHER
DEMOGRAPHIC GROUP WITH SIGNIFICANT IMPLICATIONS FOR
INFANT AND TODDLERS ACROSS THE COUNTRY.
EVEN WORSE, BECAUSE THE CHILDREN MISSED MOST OFTEN WERE CHILDREN
OF COLOR, CHILDREN WHO ARE ALREADY DISPROPORTIONATELY POOR
AND UNDER RESOURCED WERE LIKELY TO GET LESS THAN THEIR SHARE OF
DOLLARS AND SERVICE. THE RISK OF A SIGNIFICANT CHILD
UNDER COUNT IN 2020 IS GREATER NOW THAT THOUSANDS OF IMMIGRANT
FAMILIES WILL BE AFRAID TO RESPONSE TO THE CENSUS BECAUSE
IT WILL INCLUDE THE CITIZENSHIP QUESTION.
TODAY’S BABIES WILL BE TOMORROW’S CENSUS TAKES AND CSAC
MEMBERS TO LET’S USE THE TOOLS WE HAVE TO GIVE THEM THEIR NEXT
BEGINNING. WE URGE THE CSAC TO ADDRESS THE
CHALLENGES HISTORIC UNDER COUNT OF YOUNG CHILDREN AND URGE STAFF
TO MEET THOSE CHALLENGES. ESPECIALLY IN TWO WAYS.
FIRST, IN THE 2010 CENSUS THE RESULTS OF THE DUAL SYSTEM
ESTIMATES METHOD GREATLY UNDERESTIMATE THE COUNT OF YOUNG
CHILDREN. WE HOPE TO SEE THIS ISSUE
BROUGHT FOR ADVICE AS WE BELIEVE MEMBERS OF THIS COMMITTEE BRING
KEY EXPERTISE TO MAKE SURE IT’S ADDRESSED IN 2020. SECOND, THE DEMOGRAPHIC DATA WAS
NOT RECEIVED UNTIL 2018 FOR THE 2010 CENSUS.
HAVING THIS DATA AVAILABLE IN A MORE TIMELY FASHION WOULD HELP
ADVOCATESADVOCATES LIKE ME BETTER INTERPRET THE NUMBERS.
CSAC CAN PLAY AN ESSENTIAL ROLE. THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR GIVING ME
THE OPPORTUNITY AND MORE IMPORTANTLY FOR THE RECOGNITION
THAT AMERICA’S BABIES ARE AMERICA’S POTENTIAL AND MORE
THAN JUST NUMBERS IN A DATA SET.
>>TOMMY WRIGHT. THANK YOU, ARE THERE OTHER
MEMBERS IN THE ROOM TO GIVE COMMENT?
SEEING NONE, THANK YOU. NOW, ARE THERE ANY PUBLIC COMMENTERS ON THE PHONE?
>>THERE ARE NONE.>>THANK YOU VERY MUCH.
WE WILL NOW PROCEED WITH JUAN PABLO DISCUSSING THE ECONOMIC
INTERNET SELF-RESPONSE EXPERIENCE.
JUAN PABLO.>>SO WE’RE GETTING TO MANY OF
THE POSITIVES WITH THE NEW APPROACH.
SOME OF THEM ARE THE SAME REASON WHY WE’RE DOING INTERNET
SELF-RESPONSE FOR THE DECENNIAL CENSUS AND THERE’S SAVINGS IN
NOT MANAGING PAPER AND MORE CONVENIENT FOR IN RESPONDENTS
ESPECIALLY FOR THOSE WHO HAVE DATA ELECTRONICALLY ALREADY AND
JUST COPY IT OVER AND HAVING SPREAD SHEETS MAY MAKE THINGS
SIMPLER FOR MANY RESPONDENTS. HAVING ONE PLACE TO MANAGE ALL
SURVEYS, THAT IS AN ACCIDENT FEATURE OF THIS APPROACH.
ONE WAY IT’S HELPFUL IS TO BRING CONSISTENCY TO THE RESPONDENT
EXPERIENCE THROUGHOUT ALL THE SURVEYS.
THEY’LL KNOW WHAT TO EXPECT AS THEY MOVE FROM ONE SURVEY TO
ANOTHER WHAT TO LOOK FOR. THEY’LL BE USED TO THE USER
INTERFACE. IT’S ALSO AN IMPROVEMENT IN
SECURITY. YOU’RE MAKING IT MORE LIKELY FOR
PEOPLE TO KNOW WHERE TO GO TO FILL OUT SURVEYS.
IT’S A DOUBLE WIN THERE.
A RELATIONSHIP MANAGEMENT TOOL, HAVING CONSISTENCY AND THIS
SHOULD ENABLE YOU TO DO THAT. FINALLY, THE COMBINATION OF
CENTURION SHOULD ALSO HELP IMPROVE AND MAKE IT EASIER TO
IMPROVE USER EXPERIENCE OVER TIME AND ALSO REDUCE THE TIME TO
PRODUCE NEW SURVEYS OR MAKE CHANGES.
THE ADVANTAGE IS THERE IF YOU IDENTIFY CHALLENGE THE SURVEY OR
THE WAY YOU WERE DELIVERING SURVEYS YOU CAN FIX IT IN ONE
PLACE INSTEAD OF HAVING TO FIX IT IN 10 PLACES.
IT SHOULD MAKE IT LESS EXPENSIVE TO MAKE THOSE CHANGES AND MORE EFFECTIVE.
NOW TO ANSWER YOUR QUESTIONS. THE FIRST QUESTIONS WERE ABOUT SECURITY.
AND I’LL GIVE — I’M NOT A SECURITY RESEARCHER BUT MORE
AWARE OF SECURITY THAN OTHER FOLKS AS A COMPUTER SCIENTIST.
THE WAY I TRY TO EXPLAIN IT TO FOLKS WHO DON’T DO SECURITY OR
COMPUTER SCIENCE IS IT’S BASED TYPICALLY ON SOMETHING YOU KNOW
OR SOMETHING YOU HAVE OR SOMETHING YOU ARE.
SO SOMETHING YOU KNOW WOULD BE TYPICALLY PASS WORDS OR THE
ANSWERS TO THOSE SECURITY QUESTIONS.
SOMETHING HAVE YOU MAY BE YOUR PHONE OR COULD BE ACTUALLY THE
LETTER WITH THE CODE WE GET FROM THE CENSUS BUREAU.
SOMETHING THAT’S BIOMED — BIOMETRIC.
AND THAT’S NOT SOMETHING THE CENSUS WILL BE DOING SOON SO WE’LL TAKE THAT OUT.AND THAT’S
NOT SOMETHING THE CENSUS WILL BE DOING SOON SO WE’LL TAKE THAT
OUT. THAT’S WHAT SECURITY IS BASED ON
AND E-MAIL AS A USER NAME IS A GOOD IDEA AND YOU MAY SUGGEST
PEOPLE USE THEIR E-MAIL ADDRESS AND SOME PEOPLE MAY NOT DO THAT.
SECURITY QUESTIONS ARE TRICKY JUST FROM PERSONAL EXPERIENCE
AND FROM WHAT A HEAR FROM FAMILY AND FRIENDS IT’S HARD TO FIND
SECURITY QUESTIONS ONE ANSWER IS USING PART OF YOUR SECURITY
QUESTIONS BECAUSE THEY SHOULD KNOW THAT OR CAN LOOK IT UP AT
LEAST. THAT’S COULD BE A POSSIBILITY.
I KNOW YOU DIDN’T TALK ABOUT IT SO MAYBE IT’S THERE, BUT IF IT’S
NOT IMPLEMENTED I WOULD ENCOURAGE AT LEAST IMPLEMENTING
THE TWO-FACTOR AUTHENTICATION IN LIEU OF UPDATING PASSWORDS
PERIODICALLY WHERE IF SOMEONE OBTAINS A PASSWORD THEY STILL
WON’T BE ABLE TO GET IN IF YOU’RE SUPPOSED TO GET A TEXT ON
YOUR PHONE OR SOMETHING LIKE THAT.
THAT’S A RECOMMENDATION.
IN TERMS OF PASSWORD EXPIRATION, I LOOKED UP THE LATEST GUIDELINES AND THAT’S WHAT THEY
SAY I JUST COPIED AND PASTED FROM THEIR RECOMMENDATIONS AND
PROVIDED A LINK THERE VERIFIERS SHOULD REQUIRE THEM TO BE CHANGE
ARBITRARILY BUT THERE COULD BE EVIDENCE OF THE COMPROMISE OF THE AUTHENTICATOR.
PLAIN LANGUAGE DOESN’T NECESSARILY GIVE YOU MORE
SECURITY TO ASK PEOPLE TO CHANGE THEIR PASSWORD EVERY 90 DAYS BUT
IF THERE’S SIGNS OF COMPROMISE THEY SHOULD BE FORCED TO CHANGE
IT IMMEDIATELY. SO YOU HAVE TO REQUIRE STRONG
PASS WORDS INITIALLY. PASSWORDS NOT USED ELSEWHERE.
SOME THINGS SOME PLACE DOING AND I DON’T KNOW IF IT’S WITHIN THE
BUDGET OF THE CENSUS BUREAU OR THE ABILITY TO DO IT IS TO DO
DARK WEB SEARCHS FOR PASSWORDS ASSOCIATED WITH THE E-MAIL
ADDRESSES IN THE ACCOUNTS AND SEE IF ANY OF THOSE BREAK INTO THE SYSTEM
AND THAT MAKES THE ACCOUNT TO BE RESET.
I DON’T KNOW IF THAT’S WITHIN THE REALM OF POSSIBILITIES BUT I
KNOW THAT’S SOMEWHAT OF PEOPLE ARE TRYING TO DO RIGHT NOW TO
INCREASE PASSWORD SECURITY. AGAIN, YOU IF YOU HAVE TWO
FACTOR AUTHENTICATION IT GIVES AN EXTRA LAYER OF SECURITY PASSWORDS
ALONE CAN’T PROVIDE. YOU HAVE THE UNIQUE CODE IN THE
LETTER BECAUSE IT ALSO TELLS YOU THEY DID RECEIVE THIS.
AND IT MAKES IT MORE LIKELY YOU’RE INTERACT THE RIGHT PERSON.
ONE THING I DIDN’T MENTION IN THE SLIDE AS YOU SEND OUT THE
LETTERS, IT’S A GREAT OPPORTUNITY TO EDUCATE
RESPONDENTS ON FISHING RISKS. I DON’T KNOW THERE’S A BROCHURE
OR SOMETHING IN THERE THAT SAYS WE’LL ONLY ASK YOU ENTER SURVEY
RESPONSES AT PORTAL.CENSUS.gov SO IF YOU GO
THERE AND THEY GET ANY OTHER KIND OF REQUEST TO PROVIDE
INFORMATION SOME WHERE ELSE, HOPEFULLY THEY’LL BE SKEPTICAL.
RISK OF DECLINE AND RESPONSE WAS ANOTHER AREA.
AND SO I HAVE A FEW IDEAS HERE. ONE WOULD BE TO TRY TO IDENTIFY
ANY PROFILE OF BUSINESSES THAT ARE HAVING A MORE DIFFICULT TIME
RESPONDING OR WHERE RESPONSE RATES ARE LOWER AND THERE’LL BE
AN OPPORTUNITY TO ENGAGE WITH THOSE COMMUNITYES AND UNDERSTAND
HOW TO REDESIGN THE PROCESS OR DO MORE OUTREACH TO THOSE COMMUNITIES.
I KNOW YOU DIDN’T HAVE TIME TO TALK ABOUT THIS BUT OPTIMIZING
USER EXPERIENCES IN MOBILE DEVICES MAY HELP SOME FOLKS WHO
MAY NOT HAVE AS MANY COMPUTER RESOURCES IN THEIR BUSINESS OR
MAY NOT BE AS COMPUTER LITERAL. THEY’RE MORE LIKELY TO HAVE
MOBILE DEVICES THEY CAN USE TO FILL THINGS OUT.
THIS IS MORE OF A PIE IN THE SKY IDEA BUT MAYBE CONSIDER
PROVIDING SOME KIND OF IMMEDIATE REWARD FOR PEOPLE AFTER FILLING
OUT THE SURVEY. I KNOW NOW THERE’S A LINK TO THE
REPORT AT THE BUREAU AND IT MAY BE POSSIBLE TO
REACH OUT TO THEIR BUSINESS SECTOR AND HAVE IT AVAILABLE IN
THE SAME PORTAL. MAYBE IT CAN PROVIDE A QUICK
VALUE OR SOME IMMEDIATE WAY OF SEEING HOW THEIR DATA RESULTS IN
SOMETHING THAT MIGHT BE USEFUL TO THEM.
THERE MAY BE A NUMBER OF STRATEGIES FOR ADDRESSING GROUPS
OF BUSINESSES THAT MAY HAVE A DIFFICULT TIME RESPONDING.
AND SO YOU MIGHT CONSIDER VIDEO TUTORIALS IF WE’RE TALKING ABOUT
LOW CONSIDER LITERACY POPULATIONS, FOR EXAMPLE.
ONE MORE THING, I SHOULD HAVE SAID THIS FIRST.
I THINK THE KEY ASPECT IN GETTING RESPONSES AND GETTING PEOPLE TO CONTRIBUTE IS TO
EMPHASIZE USER EXPERIENCE USABILITY.
IT’S GOING TO BE CRUCIAL FOR THE WAY THEY PERCEIVE THE CENSUS
BUREAU AND FOR THE LIKELIHOOD TO MOVE ON AND PROVIDE INFORMATION. WE TALKED ABOUT EFFICIENCY AND
BE ABLE TO USE TECHNOLOGY AND A COMPANY TOLD ME EVERY ADDITIONAL
WEB PAGE PEOPLE HAVE TO GO THROUGH BEFORE THEY PURCHASE THE
SERVICE COSTS THEM MORE THAN A QUARTER OF THE PEOPLE WHO WOULD VISIT THE WEBSITE.
NOT HAVING TO GO TO THE SHOPPING CART TO MAKE THE DECISION TO BUY
GIVES THEM MORE BUY.
EVERY CLICK YOU SAVE GETS YOU MORE RESPONSES.
EFFICIENCY, EFFECTIVENESS AND LEARNABILITY
IS WHERE YOU CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE IN THE LONG TERM.
THE GREAT THING IS YOU NOW HAVE ONE PLATFORM.
IF YOU FIX IT IN THE PLATFORM YOU’LL IMPROVE THINGS FOR ALL
YOUR SURVEYS. SO THAT’S A BIG PLUS WITH THIS NEW APPROACH.
AND WE’LL HAVE A GOOD POLICY FOR THE BUREAU NOT JUST FOR THE
ECONOMIC CENSUS SURVEYS. AND THINK ABOUT AND WAYS OF
THINK ABOUT IMMEDIATE REWARDS TO RESPONDING AND WE MAY NOT SEE A
REWARD OR PAYOFF IN RESPONDING TO THE SURVEYS.
AND I HAD MORE QUESTIONS BUT I KNOW YOU HAD A CHANCE TO SEE
THEM BEFORE SO YOU ANSWERED THEM ALL.
WE WON’T GO INTO THAT SLIDE. I’LL STOP HERE AND OPEN IT UP
FOR ANY RESPONSES OR DISCUSSION.
>>THANK YOU, I APPRECIATE IT. ONE THING WE’RE REALLY LOOKING
INTO IS REWARDS. THE MOTIVATION AND RESPONSE IN
USING THE DATA AND THE OUTREACH EFFORTS HAVE BEEN FOCUSSED.
IT BECOMES POWERFUL HAVING THE E-MAIL ADDRESSES OF SURVEY
RESPONDENTS WE THAT WE COULD IMMEDIATELY AS SOON AS THEY
AUTHENTICATE AND KNOW WHAT PROGRAM THEY’RE IN, SEND THEM
THAT NUGGET OR FACTOID THAT WOULD BE SOMETHING THAT MIGHT
VOTE VATE THEM TO GET IN — MOTIVATE AND GET IN AND RESPOND
TO THE PROGRAM. THAT’S SOMETHING WE’RE LOOKING
INTO AND APPRECIATE THE REUP FORCEMENTFORCEMENT —
REENFORCEMENT WITH THAT.REENFORCEMENT WITH
THAT.>>KEN SIMONSON CSAC.
DID THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT SHUTDOWN EFFECT RESPONSE OR
PROCESSING AT ALL ON THIS CENSUS SURVEY?
>>WE ACTUALLY WERE ABLE TO KEEP OUR TOOL OPEN DURING THE
SHUTDOWN I THINK WE GOT ABOUT 2% RESPONSE OVER THAT TIME.
WE WERE NOT ABLE TO DO ANY FOLLOW-UP OPERATIONS.
THE CENTERS WERE NOT STAFFED. WE HAVE ACCOUNT MANAGERS THAT
SUPPORT OUR LARGEST COMPANIES AND THEY WERE NOT AVAILABLE TO
HANDLE PHONE CALLS. WE DID END UP PUSHING OUT BECAUSE OF THE SHUTDOWN.
WE’VE BEEN ABLE TO IN THE LAST FIVE WEEKS PUT EXTRA EFFORTS IN
THE AREAS TO TRY TO GET RESPONSE IN.
>>OF RESPONSE TO PREVIOUS CENSUSES AND RESPONSE?
>>FOR RESPONSE WE FINISHED WITH A 75% WHICH WAS OUR GOAL.
WE HAD THE SHUTDOWN AND DUE TO BUDGET WE E-MAILED SIX MONTHS
LATER THAN NORMAL. WE HAD TO REPLAN A LOT OF THINGS
DUE TO COST CUTS.
IT’S ALL ELECTRONIC. THERE WERE A LOT OF FACTORS THAT
COULD HAVE IMPACTED THAT. IN TERMS OF DATA QUALITY, WE’RE
STILL LOOKING INTO THAT. IMMEDIATELY THERE’S THE OBVIOUS
THINGS COLLECTED ELECTRONICALLY. LAST TIME I THINK WE GOT 53%
ELECTRONIC RESPONSE SO LOTS OF FOLKS STILL USED PAPER.
SOMETIMES WE’D GET BLANK FORMS OR THINGS MISSING AND WE WERE
ABLE TO BUILD THAT IN. THE ERRORS WE TALKED ABOUT
THEY’RE NOT ALLOWED TO SUBMIT IF THEY DON’T GIVE OPERATIONAL
STATUS IN THEIR RECEIPT. THE FACT WE HAVE AUTO SUMS BUILT
KNEE — INTO THE TOOL HELP WITH US THE DATA QUALITY BECAUSE
THEY’RE NOT ABLE TO JUST PUT JUNK ON PAPER AND SEND IT TO US.
I DON’T KNOW HOW MUCH IT’S HELP.>>TOMMY WRIGHT.
WE’RE GIVE THE INTERRUPTION. WE HAVE LEARNED THERE WAS ONE
PERSON ON THE LINE AND WE’RE GOING GIVE THEM AN OPPORTUNITY
TO MAKE A PUBLIC COMMENT. IF YOU’RE ON THE LINE, STATE
YOUR NAME AND AFFILIATION.>>ANDREW REAMER RESEARCH
PROFESSOR AT GEORGE WASHINGTON INSTITUTE OF PUBLIC POLICY AT
GEORGE WASHINGTON UNIVERSITY. SHALL I GO AHEAD AND MAKE MY
COMMENT?>>YES, PLEASE.
>>SO I DID SEND AN E-MAIL YESTERDAY WHICH PERHAPS YOU HAVE
THE CONTENTS IN FRONT OF YOU AND THANK YOU, TARA, FOR POSTING
THAT ONLINE. IN SUMMARY, THE CENSUS BUREAU
SUBMITTED TO THE OFFICE OF MANAGEMENT AND BUDGET AN
INFORMATION COLLECTION REQUEST FOR THE 2020 CENSUS WHICH IS THE
NORM OMB HAS TO APPROVE THE CENSUS REQUEST SO THE FORM CAN
GO IN THE FIELD. IN THE SUPPORTING STATEMENT FOR
THAT INFORMATION COLLECTION REQUEST IS THE PARAGRAPH
JUSTIFYING THE INCLUSION OF THE CITIZENSHIP QUESTION.
SO IN THE PARAGRAPH I HOPE HAVE YOU BEFORE YOU, THERE’S A
SENTENCE THAT SAYS THE CENSUS BUREAU HAS IDENTIFIED NO
CREDIBLE QUANTITATIVE EVIDENCE THAT THE ADDITIONAL OF A CITIZEN
QUESTION WOULD UNDER CUT THE CENSUS AND THIS IS JUSTIFICATION
FOR THE INCLUSION OF THE QUESTION IT WON’T CAUSE A
PROBLEM. I NOTICE THAT LANGUAGE IS
SIMILAR TO LANGUAGE IN THE SECRETARY’S LETTER OF A YEAR AGO
MAKING THE DECISION TO INCLUDE THE CITIZENSHIP QUESTION.
SO SEEING THAT IN THE SUPPORTING STATEMENT AND SEEING THE
PARALLELS IN LANGUAGE WITH THE SECRETARY’S LETTER LET ME TO A
FEW CONCLUSION. I HAVE A REQUEST FOR THE
COMMITTEE. ONE IS WOULD THE COMMITTEE
PROVIDE AN OPINION TO THE CENSUS BUREAU REGARDING ITS SENSE.
IS THAT BOLDED STATEMENT CONSISTENT WITH SCIENTIFIC
PRINCIPLES IN GENERAL AND WITH THE CENSUS BUREAU’S INFORMATION
STATISTICAL QUALITY STANDARDS IN PARTICULAR?
THE O.M.B. GUIDELINES DESIGNATE THE CENSUS BUREAU’S CHIEF
INFORMATION OFFICER WHO I BELIEVE IS KEVIN SMITH TO
ADDRESS ISSUES LIKE THIS. I THOUGHT IT WOULD BE USEFUL TO
GET A WRITTEN STATEMENT FROM HIM REGARDING THE CONSISTENCY
BETWEEN THAT STATEMENT IN THE CENSUS BUREAU’S SUBMISSION TO
O.M.B. AND THE INFORMATION QUALITY GUIDELINES CENSUS BUREAU
USES. AND THEN THE OTHER OBSERVATION
IS THAT BECAUSE AT LEAST IN MY EXPERIENCE, THAT KIND OF
STATEMENT FROM THE CENSUS BUREAU TO O.M.B. JUSTIFYING THE DESIGN
OF A SURVEY IS NOT THE NORM AND I CAN’T IMAGINE WHICH
PROFESSIONAL STAFF WROTE THAT. IT OCCURRED TO ME IT’S PROBABLY
LIKELY SOMEONE ON THE POLITICAL STAFF AT THE CONGRESS DEPARTMENT
WROTE THAT. IT WOULD BE A QUESTION FOR THE
COMMITTEE TO ASK THE CENSUS BUREAU TO IDENTIFY THE AUTHOR OF
THAT PARTICULAR PARAGRAPH. IT MAY BE SOMEONE ON THE
PROFESSIONAL SIDE OF THE CENSUS BUREAU.
AGAIN, IT’S A QUESTION, IS THAT CONSISTENT WITH CENSUS BUREAU
PRINCIPLES AND PRACTICES BUT IF IT IS SOMEONE OUTSIDE THE CENSUS
BUREAU I RAISE THE LAST OBSERVATION WHICH IS WHAT IS
THIS COMMITTEE’S SENSE OF THE CONSISTENT OR ADHERENCE OF THE
CENSUS BUREAU TO PRESENCE PRINCIPLES AND PRACTICE
INSTITUTIONS OF POLITICAL INDEPENDENCE AND REGARDING
COMMITMENT TO SCIENTIFIC INTEGRITY.
THAT IS MY STATEMENT TO THE COMMITTEE.
IF HAVE YOU QUESTIONS FOR ME, I’M HAPPY TO ANSWER THEM BUT I’LL STOP HERE.
>>YOUR FULL STATEMENT IS ON THE COMMITTEE’S WEBSITE THANK YOU
VERY MUCH.>>THANK YOU FOR THE OPPORTUNITY.
>>THANKS FOR THE INTERRUPTION.>> KEN.
I GO BACK TO THE LESSONS LEARNED TO BE SHARED OR SHARED.
WHERE THERE THINGS YOU FEEL SHOULD HAVE BEEN DONE
DIFFERENTLY? THINGS YOU DIDN’T GET TO BECAUSE
OF FUNDING TIME OR OTHER REASONS YOU WANT TO INCORPORATE NOW.
AND ARE THERE THINGS THAT YOU CAN SHARE WITH YOUR COLLEAGUES
DOING OTHER SURVEYS OR OTHER PROCESSING OR SECURITY MEASURES.
>>SO JUST TO START, ONE OF THE THINGS WE HAVE AS LESSONS
LEARNED IS LOOKING AT THE DATA. WE’RE JUST GETTING INTO SOME OF
THE DETAILS FROM THE 2017 ECONOMIC CENSUS.
WE’RE SEEING THAT RESPONDENTS DID HAVE DIFFICULTIES WITH SOME
OF THE PASSWORD RESETS. WE HAD AN INFLUX OF CALLS TO THE
CALL CENTER AND MANY WERE NOT SUBJECT MATTER RELATED.
THEY WERE RELATED TO THE TECHNOLOGY AND ISSUES PEOPLE
WERE ACTUALLY HAVING GETTING INTO THE SYSTEM.
I THINK WE HAVE LESSONS LEARNED THERE.
THAT’S WHY WE WERE PARTICULARLY INTERESTED IN THE COMMITTEE’S
GUIDANCE ON SECURITY OR ANY RECOMMENDATIONS WE HAD THERE.
WE WORK CLOSELY WITH OUR OFFICE OF INFORMATION SECURITY TO
IMPLEMENT AND INTERPRET THE GUIDELINES AS APPROPRIATE.
I THINK WE DEFINITELY SAW SOME OBSTACLES AND BARRIERS
PARTICULARLY AROUND THE LOGGING IN PROCESS.
THE RESET OF THEIR PASSWORD. THE USE OF THEIR SECURITY
QUESTIONS. MANY RESPONDENTS OPTED TO GO
DOWN THE PATH WHERE THE E-MAIL RESET WAS SENT TO THEM DIRECTLY
AND THEY REAUTHENTICATED AND RESET IT RATHER THAN USING THE SECURITY QUESTIONS.-
AUTHENTICATED AND RESET IT RATHER THAN USING THE SECURITY
QUESTIONS.AUTHENTICATED AND RESET IT RATHER THAN USING THE
SECURITY QUESTIONS. THEY HAVE TO BE MORE THAN FOUR
CHARACTERS AND THERE NEEDS TO BE CAPITALS AND IT SEEMS
STRAIGHTFORWARDFUL YOU GO —
STRAIGHTFORWARD UNTIL YOU HAVE TO GO BACK AND REMEMBER THE
DOG’S NAME. WE JUST SHARED DATA WITH OUR
SENIOR LEADERSHIP AND DIRECTORATE AND WE’LL BE USING
THAT. I THINK THE USER EXPERIENCE IS
THE DIRECTION WE WANT TO HEAD.
WE KNOW WHERE IT PROVIDES BARRIERS THERE’S LIMITED
RESPONSE AND WE’RE SENSITIVE TO THAT.
>>YOUR EXPERIENCE — I’M CATHY PETIT.
SORRY. YOUR EXPERIENCE WITH THE
TURNOVER ISSUE BECAUSE WE IMPLEMENTED SALES FORCE TOO SO
KEEPING THAT UP TO DATE AND HAVING THE CONTACT E-MAIL IF THE
PERSON IS NO LONGER THERE, HOW IS THAT IDENTIFIED?
DISABLED? AND WEN — WHEN YOU GET BOUNCE
BACKS? YOUR PROCEDURES AND HOW THIS HAS
AFFECTED THOSE PIECES AS PEOPLE TURNOVER OR LEAVE
COMPANIES WHICH I ASSUME HAPPENS ALL THE TIME.
>>I’LL START AND SHELLY CONDITION FINISH.
THE DELEGATES ARE ALLOWED TO MANAGE.
IF I DELEGATE TO YOU AND THEN YOU LEAVE, I’M ABLE TO DISABLE
ACCOUNTS. IT’S BUSINESS MAINTAINING.
THEY CAN SEE WHO STILL HAS AN ACTIVE ACCOUNT AND WHO HASN’T
ACTUALLY WENT IN AND VALIDATED THEIR E-MAIL AND ESTABLISHED
THEMSELVES SO THEY CAN PING THEIR COLLEAGUES.
I THINK THAT’S THE MAIN WAY.>>IF WE HAVE SITUATIONS WHERE
SOMEBODY LEAVES THE COMPANY OR ON AN EXTENDED LEAVE, WE HAVE
WAYS TO GET SOMEBODY ELSE WITHIN THAT COMPANY ACCESS TO THE TOOL.
WE CAN DELEGATE FOR THEM. DELEGATE THAT SURVEY SO IT’S NOT
LIKE THEY’RE LOST SINCE THAT CODE HAS EXPIRED.
>>DO YOU ENCOURAGE COMPANIES TO HAVE A DELEGATE?
HAVE YOU TWO CONTACT FOR EACH COMPANY?
>>WE ENCOURAGE THEM TO USE THE DELEGATION RATHER THAN LIKE
SHARING ACCOUNTS AND THINGS LIKE THAT.
ONE THING WE HAVE LEARNED IS WE NEED TO DO A BETTER JOB OF
SHOWING THEM THAT TOOL IN OUR DEBRIEFINGS AND STUFF.
IT WAS OBVIOUS SOME COMPANIES DIDN’T KNOW THEY HAD ACCESS TO
DOING THAT AND THAT’S ONE THING WE WANT TO IMPLEMENT IN THE
FUTURE BECAUSE IT’S A POWERFUL THING THEY CAN SHARE BETWEEN
OTHERS AND THEIR COMPANY WHEREAS BEFORE THEY DIDN’T HAVE THAT OPTION.
WE DEFINITELY WANT TO MAKE FOLKS AWARE THAT’S SOMETHING THEY SHOULD BE USING.
MY COMPANY FILLED THAT OUT AND WE HAD A GREAT TIME DOING THAT.
>>JUST A COUPLE QUICK QUESTIONS.
OF THE 25 PERSON THAT DID NOT RESPOND DID YOU HAVE DATA ON HOW
MANY STARTED ON THE PROCESS BUT THEN GAVE UP AND DO YOU HAVE
DATA ON WHETHER THERE WERE BIASES AND WHAT TYPES OF
BUSINESSES RESPONDED AND NOT RESPONDED.
WAS IT SMALLER BUSINESSES HAD A HIGHER RATE OF NON RESPONSE AND THINGS LIKE THAT?
>>YOUR FIRST QUESTION ABOUT FOLKS THAT STARTED AND THEN
DIDN’T, WE DID SEND E-MAILS THROUGHOUT THE PROCESS TO FOLKS
WHO HAD BURNED THAT AUTHENTICATION CODE MEANING THEY
START THE PROCESS BUT NEVER COMPLETED IT.
THE LAST E-MAIL WE SENT THERE WERE ABOUT 130,000 OUT THERE
THAT HAD GOTTEN INTO THE SURVEY BUT NEVER COMPLETED IT.
WE DO HOPE TO USE E-MAIL FURTHER IN THE FUTURE.
RIGHT NOW WE’RE LIMITED TO ONLY USING IT SINCE IT WAS THE FIRST
TIME WE DID THE CENSUS WITH THE SYSTEM.
WE ONLY HAD E-MAIL ADDRESSES FOR FOLKS THAT HAD ACTUALLY STARTED
IT. SO THAT’S HOW WE USED THE E-MAIL
BUT IN THE FUTURE WE’D LIKE TO USE IT MORE WIDELY.
AND I’M SORRY, WHAT WAS THE SECOND QUESTION?
>>WERE THERE SPECIFIC — >>WE ACTUALLY SAW PART COULD BE THE
COLLECTION CYCLE WAS SHORTER IN 2012 BECAUSE OF THE MAIL OUT.
THE LARGE COMPANIES AND SMALL COMPANIES ARE DOWN ACROSS THE
BOARD. IT WASN’T ALL — EVEN THE
LARGEST COMPANIES ARE DOWN ABOUT 10% AND THOSE ARE THE ONES THAT
HAVE THE HAND HOLDING ACCOUNT MANAGER SUPPORT FROM ANALYSTS.
MISSION — ANYTHING ELSE?
>>THANK YOU, THAT CONCLUDES THAT SESSION.
WE ARE RIGHT NEAR 11:30 AND COMMITTEE MEMBERS, I GUESS WE’LL
GET LUNCHES AS WE DID YESTERDAY AND RETURN HERE.
>>YES.>>WE CAN GO GET LUNCH AND
JESSICA IS WRITING UP RECOMMENDATIONS ON PARTNERSHIP
SO IF HAVE YOU ANYTHING FOR HER GIVE IT TO HER AND JEFF IS
WRITING UP INFORMATION ON THE INCOME AND HEALTH INSURANCE
MEASURES AND THEN JUAN PABLO IS WRITING UP RECOMMENDATIONS ON
THE SESSION WE JUST HEARD SO GIVE ANYTHING YOU HAVE TO HIM AS
WE’RE EATING LUNCH AND AS SOON AS YOU ALL CAN GET THOSE TO ME
WE’LL COMPILE IT AND DISCUSS IT.>>DO YOU WANT TO SET A TARGET
TIME FOR COMING BACK FOR DISCUSSION?
>>YEAH. WE SHOULD START DISCUSSION BY
10:00 BUT LET’S AIM FOR 12:30 IF POSSIBLE.
WE HAVE TO GET OUT OF HERE AT 2:00.
DOES ANYBODY HAVE TO LEAVE EARLY?
NO? YOU GUYS ARE THE BEST.
IT’S A GREAT COMMITTEE. SO LET’S AIM FOR 12:30.
THANK YOU. I’LL CALL IN AT 12:30 FOR
DISCUSSION IF THAT WORKS.>>GREAT.
THANK YOU. WE SEE YOU’RE IN THE ROOM
VIRTUALLY. THE MEMBERS ARE STILL
DELIBERATING AND THE DISCUSSIONS HAVE NOT BEGUN SO WE’LL TRY TO
GET THE PROBLEM FIXED SO YOU CAN TAKE PART.
THANK YOU.>>YES.
>>CAN YOU GIVE AN AUDIO TEST. IT SOUNDS LIKE OF LOW TO ME.
>>I’M HERE IN CALIFORNIA.>>THANK YOU, THEY CAN HEAR YOU.
EVERYONE’S JUST READING THE DOCUMENTS.
>>EVERYBODY READY? WE’LL JUMP IN.
PETER JUST BLURT IN IF YOU HAVE SOMETHING TO SAY.
HOW ABOUT THE FIRST SECTION. IT LOOKS LIKE CATHY’S CAUGHT A
COUPLE TYPOS WHICH IS GREAT. I WANTED TO SAY WAS THE
ASSESSMENT AND ANALYSIS RECOMMENDED OR THE ISSUES RAISED
— SORRY, IN THE FIRST SENTNESS I HAVE IT HIGHLIGHTED I DON’T
THINK THE VERB’S QUITE RIGHT.
SO IN RESPONSE TO THE CONCERNS RAISED BY CSAC.
I WASN’T SURE WHAT YOU MEANT. PETER, THAT’S YOUR SENTENCE.
>>SO THIS WAS REPRESENTING THE FACT A NUMBER OF THE ISSUES I
RAISED WITH REGARD TO RISK ASSESSMENT AND MITIGATION HAD
ALREADY BEEN DONE BY THE CENSUS.
SO MANY OF THE ISSUES I WAS TRYING TO
RAISE WERE THINGS THE CENSUS WAS ALREADY THINKING THROUGH.
>>GREAT. THERE’S ONE THING AND YOU DID A
GREAT RE-ORGANIZING THE MATERIAL I SENT AND THERE’S ONE POINT I’D
LIKE TO SUGGEST A CHANGE THAT HAS TO DO WITH IF YOU LOOK AT
THE THIRD TO LAST BULLET UNDER THE POSSIBLE EDITION OF THE CITIZENSHIP QUESTION THERE’S A
SENTENCE THERE CSAC WOULD LIKE THE BRIEFING IN THE PROTOCOL TO
BE USED AND IT STARTS WITH THE DISCUSSION OF THE VOLATILITY OF
OVERALL NON RESPONSE. WE CAN SEE THE THIRD TO LAST BULLET UNDER CITIZENSHIP
QUESTION.>>OKAY, WHAT WOULD YOU LIKE TO
BE CHANGED?>>THAT BULLET WAS MOSTLY A COMMENT IN THE ORIGINAL
VERSION I SENT TO YOU REFERENCING TO THE PROTOCOL
RELATES MORE TO THE LAST BULLET MAINLY UNDERSTANDING EXACTLY
WHAT THE NON-RESPONSE FOLLOW-UP PROTOCOL WILL BE IN THE EVENT OF
SIGNIFICANTLY HIGHER NON RESPONSE AND THE POSSIBILITY THE
CENSUS WOULD THEN POTENTIALLY CHANGE IT’S PROTOCOL.
SO — >>IF I CUT THE LAST PART AND LIKE THAT?
>>THE CUT IT FROM THE THIRD BULLET AND ADDED.
>>I CAN’T SEE THAT BECAUSE I’M 60 SECONDS BEHIND.
>>I SAID WE WOULD LIKE A BRIEFING TO BE USED IN THE PARAGRAPH IN THE QUESTION
WITH THE CITIZENSHIP QUESTION.
>>TOMMY WRIGHT, A POINT OF INFORMATION.
>>I WAS CURIOUS AND THERE’S AMETHODOLOGY
WHICH HAS BEEN ESTABLISHED AND TO ADAPT.
>>THAT’S A QUESTION FOR PETER.>>PETER, I WAS LOOKING AT THE
BULLET WHERE THE BUREAU EXPECT TO DATA DURING THE 2020 CENSUS
THAT WOULD BE USEFUL IN DETERMINING HOW TO ADAPT THE
REAPPORTIONMENT METHODOLOGY, THAT SAID, I’M NOT SURE WHAT
THAT MEANS.>>THIS RELATE TO HOW THE CENSUS
WAS GOING DEAL WITH ISSUES RELATED TO POTENTIALLY MUCH
HIGHER NON-RESPONSE AND THE DEGREE TO WHICH THAT
NON-RESPONSIVENESS MAY REFLECT ITSELF IN A DIFFERENTIAL WAY
ACROSS THE DIFFERENT STATES. I’M NOT AWARE WHAT THE 1941
REAPPORTIONMENT METHODOLOGY IS AND WHETHER IT REFLECTS
STATISTICAL ADJUSTMENTS, FOR EXAMPLE, TO TAKE INTO ACCOUNT
NON-RESPONSIVENESS THAT’S DIFFERENTLY MANIFESTED ACROSS
THE STATES.>>MY UNDERSTANDING IS THAT THE
BUREAU’S GOING TO COME UP WITH 50 NUMBERS THE BEST THAT WE CAN
AND THOSE NUMBERS ARE GOING INTO A FORMULA FOR DETERMINING
APPORTIONMENT. BUT WE’RE NOT GOING TO CHANGE
THE PORTION METHODOLOGY. MAYBE YOU’LL TALK ABOUT THE DATA
THAT GOES INTO THE METHOD AND EDITING AND THINGS WE DO.
BUT THE RE-APPORTIONMENT METHODOLOGY ITSELF WILL NOT
CHANGE I’M AWARE OF.>>SO IT’S REFERENCING THE 15
MEMBERS THE CENSUS WILL PROVIDE?>>YES.
A LOT GOES INTO THAT EDITING AND AMPUTATION AND THINGS LIKE THAT.
>>THAT’S THE ISSUE IS BEING REFERRED TO THERE WITH THE OTHER
THINGS THAT GET DONE?
>>WE MAY LOOK AT SOME WORDING THAT WAY.
>>ARE YOU RECOMMENDING THAT THEY EXPLORE?
IT’S NOT THE PORTIONMENT TT METHODOLOGY.
>>THE METHOD FOR GETTING THE 50 NUMBERS.
>>CORRECT.>>SO ADAPT THE PROCESSING
PROTOCOLS OR SOMETHING LIKE THAT>>Caller: OR IMPUTATION METHODOLOGY.
[OFF MIC] .
>>TOM THREE WRIGHT.
— TOMMY WRIGHT. WE DO DO SOME IMPUTATION AND THE
SUPREME COURT SAID IT WAS OKAY FOR US TO DO.
>>PLEASE SAY YOUR NAME.>>THIS IS ALLISON.
I THINK TOMMY WAS THE ONLY ONE WHO SAID HIS NAME.
[OFF MIC]>>THIS IS CATHY PETIT.
PETER, IF THE SENTENCE SAYS THE BUREAU EXPECT
TO GATHER DATA THROUGH THE 2020 CENSUS THAT WOULD BE HELPFUL IN
ADAPTING OTHER PROTOCOLS USED POST PROCESSING TO REFLECT THE
ETCETERA.>>I THINK WHAT’S MISSING THERE
IS IT’S NOT APPORTIONMENT METHODOLOGY BUT ALL THE
PROCESSES TO GO INTO APPORTIONMENT.
SO WE NEED TO INCLUDE ACROSS THE DIFFERENT STATES A FORM OF
APPORTIONMENT.>>Caller: THIS IS PETER.
THAT’S WHAT I INTENDED. IT’S NOT THE MANDATED ISSUE,
IT’S WHAT THE CENSUS DOES TO INFORM CONGRESS.
THE RE-APPORTIONMENT.
>>CATHY, WHY DON’T YOU PUT IT AT THE END OF THE SENTENCE
INSTEAD OF IN THE MIDDLE THERE.>>TO PRODUCE — SORRY, WHERE DO
YOU WANT ME TO PUT IT?>>DIFFERENT STATES TO INFORM
APPORTIONMENT.>> RE-APPORTIONMENT?
>>TOMMY WRIGHT, I ASSUME THAT’S WHAT YOU MEANT, PETER.
>>Caller: THIS IS PETER. YES, THAT’S EXACTLY WHAT I
INTENDED.>>THIS IS ALLISON, THANK YOU,
GUYS, THESE ARE IMPORTANT CLARIFICATIONS SO OUR RECOMMENDATIONS ARE UNDERSTOOD.
>>COMING BACK TO THE FIRST SENTENCE IN THE SECTION THE
SUPREME COURT WILL DECIDE THE ISSUE THAT SEEMS MORE CERTAIN
THAN I IMAGINE IS EXPECTED TO DECIDE THE ISSUE?
>>AND THIS IS ALLISON. ON THE THIRD BULLET WHERE WE
REMOVED THE REQUEST FOR THE BRIEFING, I WANT TO MAKE SURE
THERE’S AN ACTION ITEM THERE.>>Caller: THIS IS PETER.
I DON’T THINK THERE’S ANY ACTION ITEM GIVEN AND THE SENTENCE HAS
BEEN TAKEN OUT. IT’S MORE IN THE DOMAIN OF A
COMMENT OR SOMETHING ALONG THOSE LINES NOT REALLY A REQUEST FOR
ADDITIONAL BRIEFING.>>YEAH.
>>THIS IS ALLISON. OKAY.
>>PETER, MAYBE IT SAYS THE CENSUS NEEDS TO FULLY PREPARE TO
PIVOT WHICH I THINK IS THE INTENT?
>>Caller: THIS IS PETER. THAT WOULD BE FINE WITH ME THAT CHANGE.
>>HOW’S THIS SECTION LOOK TO EVERYBODY?
>>DO YOU WANT ME TO GO IN ORDER?
>>THIS IS CATHY PETIT. THEY RAN — RAN READ — THEY CAN
READ IT. DOES EVERYBODY KNOW HOW TO GET
BACK TO WHERE I WAS? ESCAPE?
THAT’S A GOOD ONE. SAYS THE TECH GUY IN THE ROOM.
>>WE HAVE THREE COMPUTER SCIENTISTS IN THE ROOM.
THOSE ARE THE NEXT THREE BULLETS STARTING WITH, PETER, THE EXPECTS TOGETHER.
AND THE LAST ONE JUST TO WRAP UP THIS SECTION.
ALL RIGHT, THAT SECTION’S CLOSED.
IS THAT GOOD?
EVERYBODY NOD YOUR HEAD. MOVING TO THE END TO END TEST.
I DON’T KNOW — WE WOULD LIKE TO HEAR MORE ABOUT AND I ORIGINALLY
SUGGESTED A ONE-WAY BRIEFING VERSUS A MEETING SECTION BUT DO
PEOPLE HAVE A FEELING ABOUT WHETHER THIS IS WORTH MEETING
SESSION TIME?>>PEOPLE WANT TO SPECIFY?
>>A ONE WAY BRIEFING, CATHY?>>I WAS THINKING THE ADDITIONAL
INFORMATION REGARDING THE END TO END TEST WOULD BE A ONE-WAY
BRIEFING. COULD BE ONE OR ALL DEPENDING ON
WHAT THEY FIND OUT.>>SO AS A REMINDER TO EVERYONE
AND THIS IS HELPFUL TO KEEP IN MIND, IN OUR RECOMMENDATIONS WE
HAVE A NUMBER OF THINGS WE’VE ASKED FOR IN THE FALL AGENDA AND
WHAT I NOTICED SO FAR IS WE HAVE TOO MANY REQUESTS AND IT CAN’T
POSSIBLY HAPPEN. SO IT’S GOOD TO BE STRATEGIC
ABOUT AS CATHY, SAYING, WE COULD COVER THIS IN A ONE-WAY BRIEFING
TO ASK INFORMED QUESTIONS THAT ARE HELPFUL.
IN ADDITIONAL, WORKING GROUPS, WE HAVEN’T RECOMMENDED ANY
WORKING GROUPS SO MAYBE WE ALOUD TO — ALLUDE TO THIS AND IF YOU
WANT MORE ENGAGEMENT THAT WOULD BE PERFECT.
CATHY, YOU THINK OF A ONE-WAY BRIEFING?
>>IT SEEMS VAGUE. WE EITHER WANT WRITTEN RESPONSES
OR A SESSION OR — >>YEAH, THAT’S GOOD.
>>DOES THAT SOUND GOOD, EVERYBODY, ONE WAY BRIEFING?
>>THIS IS PETER. I WOULD AGREE WITH THE ONE-WAY BRIEFING.
>>GREAT.>>BE SPECIFIC.
>>IF WE’RE SPECIFIC IT’S VERY GOOD.
TOMMY.>>TOMMY WRIGHT, I’M NOT
SUPPOSED TO REALLY ENTER INTO THE DISCUSSION.
>>CLARIFICATIONS AND QUESTIONS ARE WELCOME.
ALL THE CITIZENSHIP QUESTIONS THE COMMITTEE IS WHERE THE
CENSUS BUREAU IS CONDUCTING THIS 480,000 ADDRESSES THIS SUMMER ON
THAT. I JUST WANTED TO REMIND YOU OF THAT.
I’M NOT SURE I SAW THAT IN THE SECTION.
IT SEEMED TO BE FOCUSSED ON THE GATHERING ON THE 2020 CENSUS.
I JUST WANT TO REMIND THE COMMITTEE OF THAT.
>>>>I WASN’T SURE.
>>IS IT THERE?
IT WOULD BE BEFORE GATHERING THE 2020 —
>>IS THERE? I DON’T THINK IT’S THERE.
AND THE INFORMATION — TOMMY WRIGHT.
>>PETER, THIS IS ALL ABOUT THE PLACEMENT OF THE QUESTION.
CSAC WOULD LIKE A REPORT AND THE IMPACTIMPACT.
>>AT THE FALL 2019.
>>Caller: THAT CHANGE MAKES SENSE STO ME MODIFYING IT IN THAT WAY.
>>EXCELLENT. I’M GOING BACK TO THE END TO END TEST.
>>THIS IS JUAN PABLO. I HAVE A SUGGESTION OF SOMETHING
TO ADD THAT OCCURRED TO ME AFTER THE PRESENTATION SO WE DIDN’T
DISCUSS IT YESTERDAY. INSTEAD OF REQUEST TO GET INFORMATION ON
THE PATH FORWARD ON THE INTERNET SELF-RESPONSE AND DROP OFF
POINTS, HOW DO PEOPLE NAVIGATE THE INTERNET
SELF-RESPONSE AND ALSO THE BERS OF USER WHO
GET MOBILE DEVICES AN IF WE CAN GET THAT BREAK DOWN THAT WOULD
BE USEFUL.>>ONLINE RESPONSES INCLUDING DATA.
>>FOLLOWED BY USERS INCLUDING DROP OFF POINTS LEARNING ABOUT
DEMOGRAPHICS AND THE USE OF MOBILE DEVICE USERS.
>>BY DEMOGRAPHICS.>>DID YOU SPECIFY USE OF MOBILE
DEVICE BY DEMOGRAPHIC GROUP?>>YES, YOU COULD SAY OVERALL
PERCENTAGE OF THESE GROUPS WERE MORE LIKELY TO USE MOBILE.
THAT MAY HELP YOU BETTER TARGET SOME OF THE OUTREACH LATER ON.
>>THE NEXT PARAGRAPH THIS IS MY RECOMMENDATION BASED ON MY
INTERACTION WITH COMMUNITY GROUPS.
>>THIS IS ALLISON. ON THE PARAGRAPH ON THE 2020
SPACE I WAS TRYING TO CAPTURE WHAT YOU AND JESSICA HAD SAID.
I WANT TO CAPTURE WHAT YOU WANT.>>WEB AND MOBILE INTERFACE.
THERE’S JUST TWO, RIGHT? NOT OTHER.
>>I THINK WE HAD THESE ASKS A YEAR AGO IN HOPES AND IT’S A CURIOSITY AND I
DON’T WANT TO DISTRACT.
>>WHAT DO YOU THINK, ABBY? SHOULD THAT BE ON THERE?
>>I THINK IT WOULD BE LESS OF A DEMONSTRATION FOR US.
I THINK MY CONCERN WAS AND THE PROS AND
CONS. YOUR POINT FROM YESTERDAY, WILL
PEOPLE HELP FACILITATE USING IT AND HAVING A HEADS UP ON WHAT IT
LOOKS LIKE TO CRAFT MATERIALS I THINK SAY GREAT POINT IF WE
PREFER TO TAILOR IT TOWARDS THAT POINT.
>>CONSIDER THE BENEFITS OF PUBLISHING THE INTERFACE AHEAD OF TIME.
>>THIS IS JUAN PABLO. I WOULD SAY PUBLISHING VIDEOS.>>OKAY.
VIDEO DEMONSTRATIONS OR TUTORIALS.>>I WOULD ADD TO THAT SENTENCE,
DOES IT MAKE SENSE ANYMORE?>>NO, IT’S GOOD.
JUST NEEDS TO INCLUDE IN THE BEGINNING, SIMILARLY CSAC
REQUEST THE CENSUS BUREAU CONSIDER JUST ADD THAT.>>GO AHEAD.
>>OKAY. THE LAST ONE WAS ASKING FOR
DISCUSSION OF THE EVALUATIONS THAT ARE PLANNED AND ALLISON AND
I TWEAKED THIS TO SPECIFY COVER AND QUALITY WE WANT TO LEARN
ABOUT THEM BUT GIVEN THE LIMITED AMOUNT OF TIME THAT WOULD BE THE
MOST IMPORTANT PIECE FOR THE FALL.
>>COMMENTS. THIS IS JAY.
DOES THAT OAKLAND THE EVALUATION OF THE COMMUNICATION STRATEGY
FOR IS THAT A SEPARATE EFFORT?
>>THIS IS TOMMY, IT INCLUDES SOME EXPERIMENTS YESTERDAY TO BE
FINALIZED AND SOME EVALUATIONS AND LOTS OF ASSESSMENTS AND I
WAS TRYING TO REMEMBER THIS MORNING WHETHER IT INCLUDED THE
PARTNERSHIP SPECIALISTS AS WELL AS SOME THINGS BUT THERE’S AN
EVALUATION BUT WHO IS DOING IT.>>THERE’S AN ASSESS MANY —
ASSESSMENT OF THE PARTNERSHIP PROGRAM AND THERE’S SOME ASPECTS
OF THE 2020 PROGRAM BUT AS I SAID YESTERDAY, IT’S DIFFICULT
TO DO THE KIND OF EXPERIMENT THAT WOULD REALLY SHOW YOU —
THE KIND OF PARTNERSHIP IS CHALLENGING BECAUSE YOU CAN’T
REALLY TURN ANYTHING OFF IN ANY MUNICIPALITY AROUND THE COUNTRY.
WE TRIED IN 2010 TO DO AN EXPERIMENT BUT THE AIRWAYS ARE
FLOODED AND IT’S JUST CHALLENGING.
WE ARE LOOKING AT WAYS AND I THINK IT’S ALSO TRUE THAT SOME
OF THE EXPERIMENTS AS TOMMY SAYS ARE STILL BEING REFINED AND
DEVELOPED. IT’S ONGOING WORK.>>I DON’T KNOW WHAT’S AVAILABLE
IN 2016?>>THERE’S ANNOUNCEMENT OF
COMMUNICATIONS WORK FROM 2016 ON THE WEBSITE.
>>THAT MAY BE A GOOD THING TO LOOK AT.
>>THAT’S TRUE.>>THIS IS CATHY.
I GUESS I’M JUST CONCERNED WE COULDN’T COVER THE DEMOGRAPHIC
ANALYSIS AND THE COMMUNICATION IN ONE SECTION.
>>SHOULD WE HOLD RECOMMENDATION FOR A FUTURE MEETING.
>> I WAS NOTING ABOUT EVALUATING THE EFFECTIVENESS OF
THE COMMUNICATION PLAN AND WHETHER IT’S COMBINED?
>>DO YOU THINK IT SHOULD BE?>>THAT WOULD BE WHEN WE GET TO
YOUR SECTION.>>YEAH.
>>AND WHAT DOES IT STAND FOR?
>>EXPERIMENTS.>>NO, THE “B.”
>>YOU ASKED ME BUT WHY WOULD I KNOW THE ANSWER.
>>WHAT IS C PEX.>>EXPERIMENTS IF IT’S IN THE
RIGHT ORDER.>>SO PROGRAM FOR EVALUATION AND EXPERIMENTS?
THE CENSUS PROGRAM FOR.
>>THERE’S EXPERIMENTS, EVALUATIONS AND ASSESSMENTS AND
MAYBE A LISTING OF THOSE IN SOME FORM BUT THAT COULD BE SHARED.
>>THAT WOULD BE GREAT.
>>YOU CAN DELETE AFTER CPEX THE WORD PROGRAM.
>>THE CPEX COMPONENT.
>>DOES ANYONE HAVE COMMENTS?
>>INTEGRATE PARTNERSHIPS.>>WE’LL TWO TO THE OTHER
SECTIONS SO PLEASE LOOK AND MAKE SURE IT’S WHAT YOU HAD IN MIND.
>>THIS IS MARIO AND AN APPRECIATE THE EDIT.

FACEBOOK AGREED TO IMPLEMENT THE FEATURE IN GOVERNMENT IT DIDN’T
REQUIRE THE GOVERNMENT TO PRODUCE THIS MAYBE WE NEED TO
CHANGE THE SENTENCE TO REFLECT IT’S AN ASK OF THE TECH
COMPANIES TO INTEGRATE THIS.>>COMPLETELY AGREE WITH JESSICA
AS THE AUTHOR OF THE CONFUSING SENTENCE AND WANTED TO GIVE
SOMETHING CONCRETE TO THINK ABOUT BUT SHE’S RIGHT.
PARTNER WITH TECHNOLOGY PARTNERS OR NEGOTIATE AGREEMENTS WITH
TECHNOLOGY PARTNER THAT CAN LEVERAGE SOCIAL MEDIA PLATFORMS FOR CENSUS MESSAGING AND THERE’S
A METHODOLOGY FOR HOW TO DO IT AND MAYBE IN THE PARAGRAPH FOR
EXAMPLE SORT OF THING.>>I LOVE THAT REFRAMING AND

PERSON’S PROFILE PICK.

SHOULD INTRODUCE NEW TECHNOLOGY AT THIS POINT, RIGHT?
>>THIS IS JUAN PABLO. SO MAYBE I’LL PUT IN IDEA AND
SAY SOMETHING LONG THE LINES OF PROVIDE FEEDBACK SELF-RESPONSE WITH CURRENT
RESPONSE RATES.>>AND THIS WOULD EXPLORE WAYS TO PROVIDE IMMEDIATE FEEDBACK

IF IT’S POSSIBLE TO ADD.
>>SHOULD WE SCROLL DOWN MORE? I THINK THIS IS WELL WRITTEN.
>>IT WAS SUGGEST TO LINK BACK TO THE CALL-IN QUESTION IN THE

SPECIFIC TO CALL UP A PERSON FOR WHAT FEEDBACK ON THAT.

>>THIS IS JAY. ON THE PROTOCOL FOR OUTREACH AND
COMMUNICATION RELATED TO SUCH AN OCCURRENCE I THINK IT SHOULD BE
BROADER BEYOND OUTREACH AND COMMUNICATION AND INCLUDING HOW

SOMETHING THAT CAPTURES THE IDEA THAT THIS TRIGGERS A WHOLE SUITE.

>>YEAH, LIKE HOW LONG SHOULD A SERIES BE CARRIED FORWARD AND
BEST PRACTICES FOR THE BRIDGING ACROSS THE CONTINUITY AND SOME
OF THE LITTLE STUFF IS RENAMED VARIABLES SO PEOPLE AREN’T

BEGINNING, THE CENSUS BUREAU HAS IDENTIFIED.
NO CREDIBLE QUANTITATIVE EVIDENCE THAT IT WOULD IMPACT
THE UNDER COUNT OF THE 2020 CENSUS.

CITIZENSHIP QUESTION WOULD IMPACT THE NET UNDER COUNT OF
THE 2020 CENSUS. AND YOU’VE GOT THAT.

ADDITION OF AN CITIZENSHIP QUESTION WOULD
IMPACT THE UNDER COUNT.>>I — THIS IS JUAN PABLO.
