of census imputations and on demographic analysis components, particularly immigration.

The panel commends the Bureau for the extensive evaluations that it has conducted of the census and the A.C.E. to date. These evaluations underscore the critical importance for the census of having a coverage measurement program, such as the A.C.E., with a large independent survey that can provide detailed information on coverage errors for population groups and geographic areas.

Sincerely yours,

Janet L.Norwood,

Chair

Panel to Review the 2000 Census
