Without Correction for ICM
Statistical sampling was addressed in the 1998 appropriations bill (Public Law 105-119) which was passed by the House of Representatives in 1997. According to PL 105-119, the population count produced without using statistical methods, whether for Census 2000, or simulations that prepare for it, must be publicly available for all levels of census geography. ICM is a quality check survey program designed to produce statistically valid estimates that correct for undercoverage.
