The state of California), the ACS estimates have a sampling variance that is quite low, so there is little variance improvement from controlling to the population estimates. However, it is exactly at these larger areas where one would normally expect little difference in seasonal population. The bias increase from using the population estimates (with respect to residence concepts) is probably small. Still, there may be some large places with high seasonal variation in the population, perhaps a place like Palm Springs.

However, the 2000 PUMAs were not designed for use with ACS data; a new look is needed. Ideally, these statistical geographic areas should be explicitly designed for the delivery of data at the one-year (65,000 population) and three-year (20,000 population) data releases. The current PUMAs are all at least 100,000 in population size. A prototype for such a project can be found in the existing Participant Statistical Areas Program used by the Geography Division to solicit local input on the delineation of census tracts, block groups, and census designated places.

Perrone will be changed to include some or all of the EDS records that previously would have been ineligible for census operations. Since the purpose of this project is to evaluate the coverage of the MAF, we need to look at the primary user of the MAF. Currently, the MAF is being used mainly as a source of addresses for the ACS. Therefore, we use ACS rules when defining valid housing units on the MAF in this analysis. However, estimates based on ACS housing rules alone do not give an adequate picture of the behavior of the MAF.
