NOTES: Net undercount rates differ slightly from those in Table 6.7 because of different denominators (census count in this table; A.C.E. or PES estimate of population group in Table 6.7); minus sign (–) indicates a net overcount or a decrease in the net undercount rate. See Appendix E (Table E.3) for definitions of race/ethnicity domains. Individual component effects are from introducing one change at a time in the estimation methodology. A different ordering of the revisions would result in slightly different component effects. E- sample and P-sample duplication corrections were based on links of cases to census enumerations outside the A.C.E. search area identified in the Further Study of Person Duplication. E-sample and P-sample measurement error corrections were based on the results of the Evaluation Follow- Up reanalysis for cases not linked to census enumerations outside the A.C.E. search area (the P- sample measurement error corrections also include the results of the Matching Error Study).
