Searching for a Needle in a Haystack: Creative Use of the Decennial Census Dress Rehearsal Data to Find Board and Care Places in Central Missouri


The purpose of this survey was to determine: (1) whether the Census provides a suitable frame for selecting board and care places; and (2) whether the questionnaire would elicit sufficient information to identify such places.

They can be as concrete as assisting the dependent person with eating or as abstract as providing protective oversight. [65 PDF pages]
