Correcting Employment Rates in the 2000 Decennial Census Using Information from the CPS-Census 2000
AbstractThe decennial census for 2000 shows a much lower employment rate for U.S. adults than the Current Population Surveys (CPS) does. This paper corrects the data from the decennial census for reporting error and still finds a substantially lower employment rate, especially among young blacks and Hispanics, than in the CPS.
