2020 Census: Prioritized Information Technology Research and Testing Is Needed for Census Design Decisions
Carol R. Cha (au)
One of the most important functions of the U.S. Census Bureau (Bureau) is conducting the decennial census, which is mandated by the Constitution and provides vital data for the nation. This is a major undertaking, and the Bureau increasingly relies on information technology (IT) to support the operational design and execution of the census. For the 2020 Decennial Census, the Bureau is planning significant changes to the methods and technologies it uses to conduct the census. However, it has not previously used many of these methods at the scale being considered for 2020, which adds a large degree of risk. This report reviewed the Bureau's IT-related efforts for the 2020 census. It determines (1) progress in researching and testing IT options to support design decisions for the census; (2) key IT risks facing the census and evaluate the Bureau's efforts to mitigate them; and (3) progress in implementing prior GAO recommendations related to IT management and information security. Figures. This is a print on demand report.
