Park DR S, NE- Atlanta, Georgia 30329.
The Georgia Department of Community Affairs will host this FREE 2-hour training session on procedures for the U.S. Census Bureau Count Question Resolution Program. Census Bureau staff will conduct this training on: Wednesday, June 08, 2011 from 1:00-3:00 pm in the Department of Community Affairs, Room 302.
Although the Census Bureau attempts to count everyone during the Census, historically, there have been a small percentage of cases where a wrong geographic boundary or coding of a housing unit was used to produce the official census population and housing counts for a local area. There may also be cases where due to processing errors, the Census Bureau mistakenly duplicated or deleted living quarters that were identified during the census.
A process has been established by the Census Bureau for elected officials to challenge their jurisdiction’s 2010 Census count — Count Question Resolution. The program was created to specifically address three types of instances where a state, local or tribal government feels an error was made in the 2010 Census results for their area.
Count Question Resolution will accept challenge submissions from governmental units beginning June 1, 2011. All challenges must be received by the Census Bureau no later than June 1, 2013. It is important to note that the Census Bureau will not collect any additional data or conduct additional surveys during this challenge process.
If a challenge results in a change, the Census Bureau will issue official revised counts to the affected governments. These changes can be used by the governments for future programs that require official 2010 Census data. They will also be used to calculate subsequent population estimates for that community.
