straightfrward in process as it is in name, allowing local

governments to contest current ye~r population estimatesthrough ,local

data documenting changes in the local housing s,tock. Typically, ,this is accomplished through careful inventory ,
of loca! buildi,ng permit data, but may

also include other data

sources 'tracking potential change to -the local housing' stock


suchas certificates of

occupancy, residential utility c~nnections,

group quarters populations, voter registration records,


department of motor vehicle registrations, and/or property tax,

assessments.

,In 2008 alone a total of, 39 chaUengesby local governments were recognized by the Census Bureau until resulting in
population adjustments of roughly 400,000 people (or a 4% increase) back to the contesting jurisdictions.,

In some cases, a new Census headcount suggest dramatic inaccuracies in Census' annual estimates. In

2000, an estimated decade-long decline in population in Example 1.1 did not capture the modest growth
actually taking place. In other cases, the opposite can be true, as in EXlmple.1~2, where the actual

population growth appears to be much lower than that suggested by the Census Estimates. Through the process, local input provided through annual updates enables Census to examine the best available data and -decreases reliance on imputatio,n and estimation from surveys significant at much
broader geographies.

1.3 WHY IS AN ACCURATE CENSUSIMPORiANT?

Accurate population counts and estimates ~re important to , , cities for many reasons. The numbers drive decisions rega..ding where and ,how federal andstate funding is directed, private
sector resdurce attracted and deployed, where people choose
to live, and, most about the vitality of cities

importantly, they drive public perceptions

and regions.

1.3.1 Allocation

of Federal Funding

Census population counts and estimates' determine a city's

share of funding allocations for federal and state programs, a


city's prospects for securing private

sector investment, a city's

administrative effectiveness and efficiency, and eventhe


public perception of cities. In short, census population estimates matter enormously to cities. In total, over 170 federal programs incorporate census population indicators into formulas that determine the
range and level of funding available to local governments. State agencies and federal.resources from census based-formula awards. In addition,

cities receive billions in


there are many federal programs that

use population thresholds for determining funding levels. For instance, CDBG funding is only available to
cities with 50,000 or more residents (200,000 or more

for counties).

1 The Cost

of

the lJruiercount

As the U.S. Conference of Mayor's 1999 survey on the fiscal impact of the census undercount , demonstrated, . a modest 4% census population undercount translated to $677 millon dollars of
unrealized federal and state funding allocations to just 20 cities over the course of this decade.

America's cities stand to lose much more if funding allocations continue to be based on incomplete census information. Billions of dollars in public sector funding
available to municipalities

, ,

are at stake.

Similarly, a study conducted by Price Water _ House Coopers

generClted estimates showing the effect of the Census 2000 , undercount on federal funding of eight maj()r programs over a
ten year peri~d, 2002-2012. For' instance, accor,jing to the
report, California wis undercounted by 522,796 people in the , 2000 Censl,s. Los Angeles population, was undercounted by over 175,000. The cost, in terms of lost federal funding,to both Los Angeles and California, is significant.

For just eight federal programs, California lost an estimated $1.5 billion in funding betWeen 2002 and
2012. Furthermore, Los Angeles

$635 millon in federal funding over the same period. An accurate census c;ount is the most powerful way to ensure cities, and its communities, get
County lostan estimated

their fair share of funding for heaith, education and economic development p~ograms. '
1.3.2 Private and Public Investments

. r . .,' '.

In ddition, retailers, financial institutions and other private sector investors each year rely on census
population estimates

to inform their investment decisions across cities. Indeed the Brookings Institution

, ,Census

demographic data used for retail decisions is the u.S. Bureau."1 Private sector models based on incomplete census population estimates will continue, to' drive private sectr dcision-making" putting cities impacted by undercounts at, a distinct disadvantag~. N()t only do census population estimates' influence public fUnding formulae, define the market informtion use,d to support private sector investments, but these same indicators are used as the benchmark by which cities,frame policy decisions or measure their own administrative effectiveness,
hotes that, lithe foundation ofthe private-sector

incomplete census population estimates contribute to inexact policy recommendations and inaccurate

program assessments.
1.33 Rankings and Public Perception
Similarly; census population estimates are classifications acrss a routinely employed to position cities 'in popular ran

kings and

variety of soc:ial categories and economic touchstones ranging from "top ten ,cities to find a job" to the "topten most dangerous cities". As such, incomplete censuspopulaton

estimates contribute, whether directly or indirectly, significantly to the perception of place, signaling economic prosperity and opportunity or forecasting stagnation and decline.
1.4 CENSUS OBSTAClES
1.4.1 Hard-To-Count Populations
In cities with vast and varied population the task of undertaking a census is significantly more

challenging and complex:


1.4.2 lack of Local Capacity and Resources
The impact of budget cuts on the census in many states is far more severe than

previously imagined. For example, in preparation for the 2000 census, the state of California set aside $24.2 million for census

outreach effOrts. Even with this considerable investment, the state was significantly undercounted. As
the 2010 count was conducted, the' implications of slashed budgets

are clearly mustrated when just $1.7 .

millon were allocated for outreach.


1.4.3 Foreclosures

The mounting foreclosure crisis has only served to make the already difficult task of counting every
individual even more complex. Large numbers of foreclosures resulted in, at least, two major

challenges:

. .
II.

it further complicated the task of determining it

occupancy levels; and

made it extreinelydifficult to track the movement offoreclsed families and individuals.

SOClAtCOMPACT PROGRAM: YOUR fAIR SHARE

2.1 THE SOCIAl. COMPACT

EDGE

SocialCompct is a nonprofit, nonpartisan coalition of business leaders from across


The country com it

itted to promoting successful investment in lower-income communities. Working in

close partnership with community and corporate leaders over the past decade' and a half, Social 'Compact has pioneered the "DriIlDowri," a methodology to analyze' iriner~city markets and create accurate, business-oriented profiles of "emerging" neighborhood markets. DraWing on business
disciplines and community, strength, these DrilDown profiles have a strong track record of catalyzing sustainable, private investment, benefiting communities,anqbusinesses alike.

2.1.1 The Dril

Down

Social Compact's innovative research fills a'void in the market: replacing outdated, deficiency-based data on lower-income commUnities with reliable market analysis to drive better investment decisions in underserved communities. The goal: safe and healthy neighborhoods in which to live and do business.

Social Compact has pioneered the "DriIlDown," a methodology first used in 1998 to analyze inner-city,
markets and create accurate, business-ori~nted profiles of emerging" neighborhood markets. Drawing on business disciplines and community strength, these DrillDown profiles have a strong track record of
catalyzing Sustainable, private investment, benefiting communities and businesses

alike.

Social Compact has performed its DrilDown analysis in more than 400 diverse neighborhoods across the country in 20 cities: Baltimore, MD; Cleveland, OH; Chicago, 1(; CinCinnati, OH; Detroit, MI; Fort Worth, TX; 'Fresno, CA; Houston, TX; Jacksonville, FL; Kansas City, MO; Los Angeles; CA; Louisvile, KY; Miami, FL;

New York, NY; Oakland, CA; Ontario, CA; San Francisco, CA; Santa Ana, CA; Tampa, FL; and Wlshington,
DC.

These analyses have demonstrated how dramatically census and misrepresent the fundamentals of urban markets; consistently showing Dril

commercial census-based upgrades

Down neighborhoods to be more populous, safer, and with far greater buying power than previously thought.

2.1.2 'Social Compact's Methods


This Census population estimate methodology influences the basis of the Social Compact primary

However unlike the census, Social Compact works from the ground up using public and proprietary dat~sets to create a list of residential addresses. We also make adjustments to the occupancy rates and persons per
research product, the DrillDown, that Sodal Compact has perfectedver the last 15 years

Social Compact is more flexible to tailor its methodology to account for local variation in reliability and availabilty of data. In contrast, the Census Bureau must gather the same data, in the sameway,across , the country.
2.1.3 Social Compact Success Record

. , " . \ .
II More than $35 bilion in aggregate

Cumulatively, through DrillDownand DrilDown Lite analyses, Social Compact has identified: household income (22%) h'gher than census trend

projections
.. More than $16 billon net worth of informal economy,

ll More than 350,000 more households than census trend projections

Specific to Your Fair Share, Social Compact has a 100% success rate in census challenges. In 2009 alone, '

Social Compact conducted the Your Fair Share CensUs Challenge Progr?m with 12 local jurisdictions in
, Florida, Texas, California, Kentucky and Cincinnati. All cities had their challenge processes approved

resulting in more than 223,000 added people to the corresponding areas. In total, ther;e adjustments
represent roughly 60% of all the population added in 2009.
2.2 THE PROGRAM
Social Compact provides a range of technical assistance throUgh th Your Fair Share Program (YFS). The
YFS wil ensure that:

a) The City of JERSEY CLLY is ready to submit the Count Question Resolution (CQR).
b) The City of JERSEY CLLY has the most complete address lists

in preparation for the release of

census estimates in 2012.

Four distinct phases comprise the technical assistance program:

2.2.1 Phase 1. Count Question Resolution

Only the local government can submit a CQR to the Census Bureau through the Program, therefore the
municipality is

'responsible for assessing whether its census stimates are accurate or not, Social
for

,Compact wil act as a consultant to advise on data gathering techniques , undertake thea'nalysis,
produce the CQR data that will be submitted to the U.S. Census Bureau, and provide the rationale

the CQR outcome. As such, Social Compact will:


l! Help the city to gather the Census 2010 maps and data,

II Help the city to gather the relevant municipal ~ata necessary for the initiative, including building
permit

data, certificates of occupancy, water, electricity aiidtax assessor data at the address

II Provide continued on-call advice and direction for

compiling necessary information and

identifying supplemental ,information,


II Provide "' ,Help the

2.2.2 Phase 2. Capacity Building around Census,

Much of the propsed work will rely on close collaborative, working relationships with an appointed
high-ranking coordinator and data collection staff within the city government. The objectives phase of

of ths first

work are immediately to:

., Provide guidelines to the city regarding the required. technology, data management process and
staff capacity

to organize and gather data in the most efficient nd accurate manner; This

information will provide

2.2.3 Phase 3. Technical Capacity Building

The data used for the Census Challenge is data that the city collects on a regular basis. Social Compact

has learnedi through its work with several citiesi that an initial collection of the necessary data and fields
in the appropriate format and database system will help the City of JERSEY CITY to be ready for the

Census Challenge once it becomes available. The objectives of phase tWo are:
.. .Brief necessary city staff

(in addition to.those who participated in the Training Phase) to enlist the active support of key city departments and other appropriate agencies;

II CoHect detailed information regarding city/s technology capacity and data management
processes II . Gather necessary city data from December 2009 through the current month

one final review of

the technologyi data and collection process and see if any final adjustments need to be made.

2.2.3.1 Data Required for the (en.sus Challenge


Theoreticallyi any data that can identify

the number of housing units within a city would

be useful for a Census Challenge. Howeveri the Census Bureau currently focuses on

three basic variations tO,the Housing Unit Method:

II 'Certificates ()f Occupancy Method (COM)


II Building Permits Method (BPM)

,ii Utilty Method (UM)

The BPM and COM methods also'require data on Demolitions. Housing Unit loss is
estimated by the Census Bureaui so having accurate data due to Demolitionsi Natural Disastersi etc. is critical for the

on the number of units lost best population .estimates.

'The UM tracks residential connections for water/' gasi sewer and/or electricity consumption. Information on any boundary changes is also required to make sure the
Census is aware of such chnges.Ancillary data on Group Quarters and Mobile Home
placements is also very helpful

for Census Challenges. '
