To measure the overall and differential coverage of the U.S. population in Census 2000, the U.S. Census Bureau conducted the Accuracy and Coverage Evaluation (A.C.E.). The A.C.E. included various stages of sampling. An initial A.C.E. sample of block clusters was drawn, and housing units within the sampled block clusters were listed. Then, the A.C.E. sample was reduced through subsampling operations (Childers and Fenstermaker, 2000).
