2003a). As a result, dozens of studies were cancelled, reducing the total list of studies from 149 to 91. Eighteen planned studies were “cancelled” from the evaluation program because they were expedited and completed as part of the Executive Steering Committee for A.C.E. Policy (ESCAP) report series, as support for the Census Bureau’s decisions on census adjustment in March and October 2001. The remaining studies were cancelled by the Census Bureau in an “[attempt] to obtain the best balance of resources” between “completing and releasing Census 2000 data products” and “conducting key Census 2000 evaluations” (U.S. Census Bureau, 2003a).
