ABSTRACT
The article discusses the U.S. Government Accountability Office (GAO)'s report and recommendations for the U.S. Census Bureau's accurate address list. It mentions that census is a constitutionally mandated activity that produces data to be used to allocate congressional seats, and federal assistance. GAO recommends that the Bureau should improve its address-building procedures, and test its master address file (MAF)/ Topologically Integrated Geographic Encoding and Referencing (TIGER) system.
