The U.S. Census Bureau partnered with state, local and tribal governments across the nation to help ensure a complete and accurate count in the 2010 Census. While the Census Bureau’s goal was to count everyone once, only once, and in the right place, there are historically a small percentage of cases where a wrong geographic boundary or coding of a housing unit was used to produce the official census population and housing counts for a local area. There may also be cases where due to processing errors, the Census Bureau mistakenly duplicated or deleted living quarters that were identified during the census.

In all these instances, the Census Bureau has established a process by which elected officials may challenge their jurisdiction’s 2010 Census count — it’s called Count Question Resolution. The program was created to specifically address three types of instances where a state, local or tribal government feels an error was made in the 2010 Census results for their area.

Count Question Resolution will accept challenge submissions from governmental units beginning June 1, 2011. All challenges must be received by the Census Bureau no later than June 1, 2013.  For more information visit the official census website
