I'd like to send Ms. Schechter some feedback about GQ population. Unless I'm
really missing something, Ms. Schechter's e-mail is not there. Thanks!

Subject: Uses of data on the Group Quarters population
As you may know, the Census Bureau asked the Committee on National
Statistics to establish a panel to review the statistical methodology for
measuring the group quarters (GQ) population in the ACS. The Panel on
Measuring the Group Quarters Population in the American Community Survey is
considering user needs for ACS data on the various components of the group
quarters population and will recommend alternatives to the current sample
design, weighting procedures, and other methodological features that can
make the ACS group quarters data more useful for small-area data users
(users of ACS 5-year period estimates that generally need and analyze data
for small governmental jurisdictions, census tracts, and block groups).
The panel would like to understand GQ data from the perspective of the data
user and has requested information on the specific uses of GQ data and
characteristics of the GQ population. We would appreciate you letting us
know if your agency has specific uses of GQ data or know of other GQ data
uses (whether from ACS or from other data sources). A brief description of
these uses would be very helpful as well.
