Darcy Steeg Morris , A Comparison of Methodologies for Classification of Administrative Records (Quality for Census Enumeration ) JSM 2014 - Survey Research Methods Section pp 1729-1743 http://ww2.amstat.org/sections/SRMS/Proceedings/y2014/files/311864_88281.pdf

This paper investigates different classification techniques for determining which administrative records are sufficiently reliable to use to achieve a Census enumeration that maintains data quality but reduces costs. In addition to the cost/quality trade-off associated with using administrative records a methodology for using administrative records that strikes a balance between predictive power and model complexity is considered.
