The purpose of the Post-Enumeration Survey is to measure the accuracy of the census by independently surveying a sample of the population. The survey estimates how many people and housing units were missed or counted erroneously in the census.
The first results are tentatively planned for release in December 2021, with more results to come in March 2022.
