2017 Census Test is under way
The U.S. Census Bureau has invited 80,000 U.S. households to participate in a practice census test this year. Participants can take the 2017 Census Test online, over the phone, or via mail. The test has two primary goals:
- Help the Census Bureau assess response methods before the 2020 Census and optimize online delivery for smartphones, tablets, and Web browsers
- Test potential tribal enrollment questions
More information, including a sample questionnaire, is on the Alaska Department of Labor and Workforce Development’s Web site.
