The U.S. Census Bureau is a large, general-purpose, statistical agency. It conducts the Census of Population and Housing in years ending in 0, the Economic and Agricultural Censuses in years ending in 2 and 7, and hundreds of establishment and household surveys on a biannual, annual, monthly, or weekly schedule. Until quite recently, almost all the Bureau's data collection utilized mail-out, mail-back paper questionnaires or paper interview schedules. This is changing. In 1992, the Census Bureau established a Computer Assisted Survey Information Collection (CASIC) Office to "broadly implement CASIC methods in Census Bureau data collection, capture, and processing."
