Using Administrative Lists to Estimate Census Omissions
Eugene P. Ericksen and Joseph B. Kadane
Abstract:We present a method for estimating omission rates from censuses. Our method is based on the merger of administrative lists, sampling from these lists, and matching against census rolls. We describe the method, present the results of a test in New York City, U.S.A. in 1980, and evaluate the results. We compare our proposed method to other procedures for estimating omission rates.
Keywords:Administrative lists; censuses; matching; omission rates.
