NOTES: Correct enumeration rates are correct enumerations divided by the sum of correct and erroneous enumerations;—, not estimated. See Appendix E (Table E.3) for definitions of race/ethnicity domains.

a Revision II and PES rates are not comparable because there was no equivalent to the Further Study of Person Duplication in 1990 and the results of the 1990 Evaluation Follow-Up were not used to adjust the estimated rates.

b Total; not available by tenure.

c 1990 correct enumeration rates include Pacific Islanders.

SOURCES: Original A.C.E. and PES correct enumeration rates from Davis (2001:Tables E-2, F-1, F-2); Revision II A.C.E. correct enumeration rates by race/ethnicity and housing tenure group from table provided by the U.S. Census Bureau to the panel, May 22, 2003; total Revision II correct enumeration rate from Fenstermaker (2002:Table 9).
