... To expand on some of the preceding examples, the Census Bureau has not proviclect, to clate, a full justification for the use of mobile computing crevices (MCDs) to assist in nonresponse follow-up data collection, or for the use of Internet anct interactive voice response (IVR)

... Their potential benefits include automated data collection anct transmission, higher quality data collection, easier identification of housing units, facilitated navigation from one housing unit to the next, anct facilitated communication of assignments. While these are certainly important advantages, they neect to be quantified to be able to analyze whether the advantages offset the costs, both monetary (perhaps on the orcler of $250 million for procurement)

... We hope that logical architecture modeling as described in Chapter 2 provides clues to other ways in which effort may be better integrated ancl internal organizations may be realignecl. Other prominent examples of substantive areas in which integration may be lacking inclucle: · insufficient efforts to develop requirements for the personal computing crevices ancl to understand how these crevices interact with headquarters with respect to acquiring up-to-date maps, assign.

... by empirical evidence from evaluation studies and census tests and with careful attention to both costs and benefits, would help greatly in building support for the 2010 census plan.

This material may be derived from roughly machine-read images, and so is provided only to facilitate research.
