The Independent Listing Operation is the first step in the CCM process. It will be conducted to obtain a complete inventory of all housing unit addresses within the CCM sample block clusters before the 2010 Census enumeration commences. In those block clusters throughout the 50 states (excluding remote Alaska), the District of Columbia, and Puerto Rico, listers will canvass every street, road, or other place where people might live in their assigned block clusters and construct a list of housing units. Listers will contact a member of each housing unit (or proxy, as a last resort) to ensure all units at a given address are identified. They will also identify the location of each housing unit by assigning map spots on block maps provided with their assignment materials.
Completed Independent Listing Books are subject to Dependent Quality Control (DQC) wherein DQC listers return to the field to check 12 housing units per block cluster from a pre-specified random start to ensure that the work performed is of acceptable quality and to verify that the correct blocks were visited. If the block cluster fails the DQC, then the DQC lister reworks the entire block cluster. The completed listing books are keyed for matching against the census Decennial Master Address File for the same areas.
There will be two Independent Listing Forms, D-1302 and D-1302 (PR). The D-1302 is the English version of the listing form and will be used in CCM sample areas in the 50 states (excluding remote Alaska) and the District of Columbia. The D-1302 (PR) is the Spanish version of the listing form and will be used only in the CCM sample areas in Puerto Rico.
