Census Bureau needs to collect all data that support any evaluation studies it intends to carry out. More coordination of these activities would be desirable in the future, by having final evaluation plans earlier. Given the uncertainty about overall census plans and budgets for 2000, however, we recognize why coordination of evaluation and research plans was not possible. We hope that future censuses can benefit from longer times for planning.
