2020 Census Planning GEOGRAPHIC SUPPORT SYSTEMS INITIATIVE (GSS-I)
For the 2020 Census – The GSS Initiative For the 2010 Census – conducted the MAF/TIGER Enhancement Program For the 2000 Census – Introduced the Master Address File Census Geographic Support – Major Initiatives Over Time For the 1990 Census – Introduced TIGER BAS Alert!!!
Major Components of Address List Development for the 2010 Census
What is the GSS Initiative? A logical next step, building upon: Accomplishments of the MAF/TIGER Enhancement Program (MTEP) MAF/TIGER Accuracy Improvement Project (MTAIP) Improved positional accuracy of TIGER Contributions of our partners GIS files & imagery between 2003 to 2008 for MTAIP 2010 Local Update of Census Addresses (LUCA) Program The recommendations of our stakeholder and oversight communities
What is the GSS Initiative? Quality Measurement Street/Feature Updates Address Updates 123 Testdata Road Anytown, CA Lat 37 degrees, 9.6 minutes N Lon 119 degrees, 45.1 minutes W An integrated program consisting of: Improved address coverage Ongoing address and spatial database updates Enhanced quality assessment and measurement
‘Why’ the GSS Initiative? Stakeholder and oversight recommendations: – The General Accountability Office, the Office of the Inspector General, and the National Academies of Science identified as issues: The lack of a comprehensive geographic update program between censuses Associated negative impact on ongoing programs such as the American Community Survey, other current surveys, and small areas estimates programs
2010 Address Canvassing Facts Number of housing unit addresses that needed verification: 145 million Number of census workers hired for Address Canvassing: 140,000 Number of hand-held computers used: 151,000 Number of local census offices that managed operations: 151 Dates of operation: March 30 - Mid-July 2009
Goal: A Shift in Focus for the 2020 Census From a complete Address Canvassing to a targeted Address Canvassing –Requires establishing an acceptable address list for each level of government 17
Why a “Targeted” Address Canvassing? $$$! It is VERY expensive –Field an ARMY of address canvassers –“Walk” EVERY street in the nation… Goal: developing regular update and change detection processes Result: “Target” only areas with uncertainty –Quality of Addresses –Currency of Addresses –Evaluation may occur at the Census Tract level
Address improvement: explore methodologies to achieve complete coverage and a current address list Feature improvement: ongoing update of the street network and attributes to improve the matching of addresses to their correct geography Quality improvement: broaden quality assessments and provide quantitative measures Improved Partnerships: strengthen existing and develop new partnerships Goals of the GSS Initiative
GSS-I Address Coverage Goals Complete and current address coverage Achieve timely updates to meet currency needs of the American Community Survey (ACS) and current surveys Additional emphasis on change detection Expanded address sources for MAF update, especially in areas without city-style addresses Simplify data sharing and minimize impact on local partners
GSS-I Feature Coverage Goals Ongoing street network and attribute updates Best available data from partners and commercial Imagery for change detection and source evaluation
Quality Assurance Goals 3: Monitor and Improve the quality of the: Existing MAF/TIGER Data IT processes for updating the MTDB Geographic products output from the MTDB 1: Establish quantitative measures of address and spatial data quality 1: Establish quantitative measures of address and spatial data quality 2: Assign Quality Indicators to MAF/TIGER data 2: Assign Quality Indicators to MAF/TIGER data
Partners New and Enhanced Programs TIGER web Web-based Address Management Tools Data upload systems Volunteered Geographic Information (VGI) Enhanced collaboration Expand Existing Partnerships Engage New Partners Utilize new tools and programs to acquire address and spatial data in the most efficient and least intrusive ways Build on and Expand MTAIP Feedback for Spatial Features Address Feedback TBD, but adhering to Title 13 confidentiality laws Improved Partnerships New Tools Enhanced Feedback Community TIGER
Who are the stakeholders? U.S. Census Bureau Other federal agencies (U.S. Postal Service, U.S. Geological Survey, Environmental Protection Agency) Tribal, State, County, and Local governments Commercial data providers National Advocacy Groups, such as NSGIC, URISA, NENA, and NAPSG YOU!
Partnerships are Key! Identifying authoritative sources for address and spatial data at various levels of government Expanding our Partnerships is Critical –Key step towards establishing an accurate and up-to-date address list
Participation Benefits Improved address and feature coverage Support current survey samples, including the American Community Survey. More current data and improved process flows Minimize the impact of programs like LUCA Taxpayer savings A more accurate 2020 Census Evaluations, quality assessment & feedback may help improve local data sets.
Planned Schedule for FY13-14 October 2012 –Kick ‐ off program with data from limited partners TBD) February 2013 –Start providing feedback March 2013 –Identify 300 ‐ 400 supplemental FY13 partners based on quality audit of MAF/TIGER data –Make “Community TIGER” available for beta testing October 2013 –Planning for open participation
What Kind of Address Data? City ‐ style addresses and/or Non city ‐ style addresses (i.e., Rural Route #) that ‘ideally’ meet: 1.USPS minimum delivery requirements, and 2.the ‘FGDC Address Standard’ (U.S. Thoroughfare, Landmark, and Postal Address Data Standard) See the Census Bureau Address Data Content Guidelines:
What Kind of Housing Unit Structure Data? Latitude/Longitude Coordinates for a Housing Unit structure or access point (i.e., from E ‐ 911 or Next ‐ Gen E ‐ 911 database) Structure centroids Latitude/Longitude Coordinates for a real property parcel or parcel centroid Other points used by partner? See the Census Bureau Address Data Content Guidelines:
What Kind of Street Feature Data? Street centerline geometry Street attributes – names, address ranges, etc. Why? Expand Census centerline and attribute coverage Spatially ‐ correct misaligned streets in conjunction with high ‐ quality imagery Feature Data and Metadata Content Guidelines:
Summary Goals of the GSS initiative –Ongoing update of the MAF/TIGER database –Improve address coverage, feature coverage, and quality in the MAF/TIGER database –Facilitate a targeted Address Canvassing operation for the 2020 Census Aligns with our commitment to provide high quality products and data
