AUTHORS: Cynthia H. Gillham, Geographer, U.S. Census Bureau

ABSTRACT: During the 2010 Census, Operations Staff in the Local Census Offices conducted Early Nonresponse Followup (NRFU) to enumerate college students while they were still in school, living in shared off-campus housing. For 2020, the U.S. Decennial Census is formally operationalizing this effort. The intent of the Early NRFU operation is to enumerate college students attending traditional universities and living in shared residences off campus, before they potentially move at the end of the Spring semester in 2020. Geographers at the Census Bureau are working together and with State Data Centers to determine which geographic areas Early NRFU will cover._x000D_
1. Developing a universe of schools that are likely to have students living nearby in shared off-campus housing._x000D_
2. Identifying the geographic area around those schools that fit selected housing and demographic criteria indicating the presence of college students._x000D_
Regional geographers are using ArcMap 10.5.1 for Desktop to review Early NRFU areas within map package files (.mpk) during their interactive review.
