Count Question Resolution

The Count Question Resolution operation gives tribal, county, and municipal governments the opportunity to request that the Census Bureau review their boundaries and/or housing counts to identify any potential errors that may have occurred while processing their 2020 Census counts.  This review helps to ensure that housing and population counts are allocated to the correct 2020 tabulation blocks.

For a catalog of Count Question Resolution resources, see the Census Bureau's CQR page.  For a very brief overview, see the Fact Sheet (2 pages); or see the Frequently Asked Questions document (22 pages). For more detailed information see the Participant Guide (115 pages).
