The Bicentennial census : new directions for methodology in 1990 by Constance F Citro( Book )

6 editions published between 1985 and 2015 in English and Undetermined and held by 243 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 1982 the Census Bureau requested the Committee on National Statistics to establish a panel to suggest research and experiments, to recommend improved methods, and to guide the Census Bureau on technical problems in appraising contending methods with regard to the conduct of the decennial census. In response, the panel produced an interim report that focused on recommendations for improvements in census methodology that warranted early investigation and testing. This report updates and expands the ideas and conclusions about decennial census methodology. In preparing this online edition, the panel's study directors, Constance Citro (currently, CNSTAT director) and Michael Cohen (currently, CNSTAT senior program officer), carefully proofread the original text only to correct previously undetected typographical and formatting errors
Reengineering the 2010 census : risks and challenges by National Research Council (U.S.)( Book )

8 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 189 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

At the request of the U.S. Census Bureau, the National Research Council's Committee on National Statistics established the Panel on Research on Future Census Methods to review the early planning process for the 2010 census. This new report documents the panel's strong support for the major aims of the Census Bureau's emerging plan for 2010. At the same time, it notes the considerable challenges that must be overcome if the bureau's innovations are to be successful. The panel agrees with the Census Bureau that implementation of the American Community Survey and, with it, the separation of the long form from the census process are excellent concepts. Moreover, it concurs that the critically important Master Address File and TIGER geographic systems are in dire need of comprehensive updating and that new technologies have the potential to improve the accuracy of the count. The report identifies the risks and rewards of these and other components of the Census Bureau's plan. The report emphasizes the need for the bureau to link its research and evaluation efforts much more closely to operational planning and the importance of funding for a comprehensive and rigorous testing program before 2010

Experimentation and evaluation plans for the 2010 census : interim report by National Research Council (U.S.)( Book )

2 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 52 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

For the past 50 years, the Census Bureau has conducted experiments and evaluations with every decennial census involving field data collection during which alternatives to current census processes are assessed for a subset of the population. An "evaluation" is usually a post hoc analysis of data collected as part of the decennial census processing to determine whether individual steps in the census operated as expected. The 2010 Program for Evaluations and Experiments, known as CPEX, has enormous potential to reduce costs and increase effectiveness of the 2020 census by reducing the initial list of potential research topics from 52 to 6. The panel identified three priority experiments for inclusion in the 2010 census to assist 2020 census planning: (1) an experiment on the use of the Internet for data collection; (2) an experiment on the use of administrative records for various census purposes; and (3) an experiment (or set of experiments) on features of the census questionnaire. They also came up with 11 recommendations to improve efficiency and quality of data collection including allowing use of the Internet for data submission and including one or more alternate questionnaire experiments to examine things such as the representation of race and ethnicity

National patterns of R & D resources : future directions for content and methods : summary of a workshop( Book )

3 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 40 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"National Patterns of R&D Resources is an annual report issued by the National Center for Science and Engineering Statistics (NCSES) of the National Science Foundation, which provides a national view of current 'patterns' in funding of R&D activities in government, industry, academia, federally funded research and development centers, and non-profits. Total R&D funds are broken out at the national level by type of provider, type of recipient, and whether the R&D is basic, applied, or developmental. These patterns are compared both longitudinally versus historical R&D amounts, and internationally."--Description (viewed Oct. 18, 2013, http://www.nap.edu/catalog.php?record_id=18317)

An adaptive R-estimate by Michael L Cohen( Book )

4 editions published in 1980 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 1962 Hajek proposed a test for location which was uniformly asymptotically fully efficient over a large class of distributions. Van Eeden subsequently derived the asymptotic theory for the corresponding R-estimate. Many authors have expressed reservations with regard to the small sample performance to be expected from this approach. In contrast to the methods of Hajek and Van Eeden, the procedure proposed here uses the entire data set to estimate the score function of the locally most powerful rank test. Using nearest neighbor density estimation methods, an estimate of the score function for the asymptotically most powerful grouped rank test is constructed. This function is itself a step function approximation to the score function for the locally most powerful rank test. Large sample distribution and optimality results are obtained for both the adaptive rank test and the corresponding R-estimate of location. Small sample monte-carlo results are provided. (Author)
