During the 2010 Census planning cycle, the Census Bureau developed and tested a new listing operation to improve the coverage of Group Quarters (GQ) addresses. The new Group Quarter Validation (GQV) operation was the successor to the Address Canvassing operation which identified addresses as housing units or Other Living Quarters (OLQs). OLQs include addresses that were GQs, such as college dormitories, Transitory Locations, such as campgrounds, Assisted/Independent Living facilities, and any other living quarters not commonly recognized as a housing unit. During GQV, enumerators validated OLQ addresses as GQs, housing units or transitory locations. This paper will discuss the distribution of outcomes from all addresses in the 2010 Census GQV operation.
