DOC/CENSUS RIN: 0607-AA57 Publication ID: Spring 2020 
Title: Temporary Suspension of the Population Estimates Challenge Program 

This document provides notice to State and local governments and to Federal agencies that, beginning on January 1, 2020, the Bureau of the Census (Census Bureau) will temporarily suspend the Population Estimates Challenge Program during the decennial census year and the year following it to accommodate the taking of the 2020 Census. The suspension of this program is a necessary action in order to ensure that sufficient resources are allocated to the conduct of the decennial census, allowing the Census Bureau’s Population Division staff to effectively evaluate the 2020 census results. The Population Estimates Challenge program has routinely been suspended in the past during the decennial census.
