The Demographic Research Area houses a multi-disciplinary staff of social science researchers (e.g. demographers, economists, geographers, sociologists) responsible for researching, developing, coordinating and implementing innovative applications of administrative records to improve Census Bureau data collection operations and data products. It includes the Survey and Economic Research Group and the Demographic and Decennial Research Group.
The Survey and Economic Research Group focuses on novel applications of administrative records in Census Bureau household survey data collection efforts. The group is responsible for researching and testing innovative methods to improve all phases of the survey life cycle, including frame development, data collection, data processing (including edit and imputation), evaluation and dissemination.
The Demographic and Decennial Research Group works with internal and external stakeholders, sponsors, and data providers to improve decennial census collection efforts. Examples include: researching measurement error in common household survey items such as demographics, household rosters, and participation in public assistance programs; assessing coverage of administrative records in the decennial census and household surveys; and analyzing response changes across multiple censuses and surveys.
