The 2010 Vacant/Delete Check operation verified the housing unit status of addresses classified as vacant or nonexistent (deletes) during the Nonresponse Followup operation. This operation also included a first time enumeration of addresses added to the Census universe and addresses that returned a blank mail questionnaire.

The 2010 Nonresponse Followup Residual operation consisted of a follow-up of housing units that were identified as occupied during Nonresponse Followup without any information about the number of people that lived at the address and additional blank mail questionnaire addresses.

These two operations are independent follow ups to insure the quality of the Nonresponse Followup enumerators work and to interview certain housing units for the first time. This paper will focus only on the results from these two enumeration operations and report on the number of occupied, vacant, and nonexistent addresses in these operations. For both of these operations this paper will also show the demographic characteristics of the people living in the housing units as reported to the enumerators and methods by which the interviews were conducted.

The address information is for the authors that have a + after their name.
