Coverage technical report : Census of population, 2016. : CS98-303/2016E-PDF

"This technical report examines coverage errors in the 2016 Census. There are two types of coverage errors. The first, called population undercoverage, refers to excluding persons who should have been enumerated. The second, called population overcoverage, refers to either including persons who should not have beenenumerated or enumerating persons more than once. In the first instance of overcoverage, the overall error is considered negligible. Undercoverage is generally more common than overcoverage. The net impact of undercoverage and overcoverage on the size of a population of interest is population net undercoverage. Net undercoverage is the number of persons excluded who should have been enumerated (undercoverage) less the number of extra enumerations of persons who were enumerated more than once (overcoverage). Coverage errors are among the most significant types of errors, since they affect the accuracy not only of the counts for the various census universes, but also of all the census data that describe the characteristics of these universes"--Introduction, page 1.
