Purpose of Address Canvassing
The Address Canvassing Operation serves two purposes:
- Deliver a complete and accurate address list and spatial database for enumeration.
- Determine the type and address characteristics for each living quarter.
This operation implements methods to improve and refine the U.S. Census Bureau’s address list in advance of the 2020 Census. The Census Bureau needs the address and physical location of each living quarter in the United States and Puerto Rico to conduct and tabulate the census. An accurate list ensures that residents will be invited to participate in the census and that the census counts residents in the correct location.
