quired to pay a fee, supply certain maps, and meet certain time deadlines as follows:
(1) Fee: (i) Population size:
$500 to several thousand dollars for data covering a 12-month period.
(c) Upon receipt of a request, information will be furnished as to whether the statistics are available and if so, the cost; or that a preliminary investigation must be conducted. When an investigation is completed, information will be furnished as to the cost of preparing the material, or as to the reason if the statistics cannot be compiled from our basic records. (15 U.S.C. 1526 and 13 U.S.C. 8) [28 FR 120, Jan. 4, 1963, as amended at 49 FR 3980, Feb. 1, 1984)
850.40 Fee structure for statistics for
city blocks in the 1980 Census of Population and Housing. (a) As part of the regular program of the 1980 census, the Census Bureau will publish printed reports containing certain summary population and housing statistics for each city block, drawn from the subjects which are being covered on a 100-percent basis. For these subjects, a substantial amount of additional data by block will be available on computer tape.
(b) The 1980 block data under the regular program will be prepared for:
(1) Each urbanized area in the United States. An urbanized area is delineated by the Census Bureau in each standard metropolitan statistical area and generally consists of a city or group of contiguous cities with a 1970 population of 50,000 or more, together with adjacent densely populated land (i.e., land having a population density of at least 1,000 persons per square mile).
(2) And, outside urbanized areas, for each incorporated place (such as a city or village) that was reported as having 10,000 or more inhabitants in: (i) The 1970 census, or (ii) The 1973, 1975, or 1976 official population estimates published by the Bureau, or
(iii) A special census conducted by the Bureau on or before December 31, 1977.
(c) Outside the above-mentioned urbanized areas and places, State and local government authorities will be able to contract with the Bureau of the Census to produce block data for their areas. In undertaking this contract, the requesting authority will be re
(ii) The final fee will be based upon the 1980 census population counts. A refund or additional charge will be made if the contracting area is in a different population size group as a result of the census.
(iii) The cost for an area with a population of 10,000 or more will be determined on an individual basis.
(iv) Multiple area contracts may be negotiated at a savings.
(v) The fee is based on estimated 1980 costs. If the 1980 cost exceeds the estimated cost, an additional fee may be requested from the contracting area. If actual costs are less than the estimated cost, a refund may be made.
(vi) Any incorporated place which contracts for block statistics and which reaches a population of 10,000 or more in the 1980 census will have the fee completely refunded, as the place will then be considered to be part of the regular block statistics program.
(vii) If the area submits maps which are not adequate for the Bureau's purposes (see Maps, below) and therefore have to be redrafted by the Bureau, a surcharge of $300 per map sheet requiring revision will be applied to the fee for the particular area.
(2) Maps: (i) In order for the Bureau to provide data on a block-by-block basis, it must have a map which clearly delineates each block. The contracting government authority must supply such maps. A copy of the specifications for preparing the block maps will be provided upon request and, in any event, will accompany the copy of the contract which is sent to the government authority for signature.
(ii) The maps must be furnished to the Census Bureau within 30 calendar days after the government authority signs the contract.
(iii) The Bureau will review the maps and, if revision is necessary, return

them within 30 calendar days to the government authority.
(iv) Within 30 calendar days thereafter, the revised maps must be transmitted to the Bureau and, if they are still inadequate and must therefore be redrafted by the Bureau, the abovementioned surcharge of $300 per map sheet requiring revision will be imposed.
(3) Timing: (i) The contract must be signed, and a downpayment of $250 per area made, by April 1, 1978. A check or money order should be made payable to “Commerce Census."
(ii) If an area decides to withdraw after signing a contract and making a downpayment, the cost of work performed to date will be deducted from the refund.
(iii) The balance of the fee must be mailed to the Bureau by January 1, 1980.
(d) In consideration of the fees paid and maps supplied, the Bureau will:
(1) Identify the individual blocks in its records and tabulations.
(2) Make available the block data for the particular area in the same manner as for areas in the regular block statistics program (i.e., both in terms of printed reports and computer summary tapes). Two copies of the printed report (including the printed maps) which contain the block statistics for the particular area will be furnished to the contracting government authority.
(e) Requests for participation in the contract block statistics program or for further information should be addressed to the Director, Bureau of the Census, Washington, DC 20233.
870.1 Cutoff dates and effect on enu
meration and data tabulation.

SOURCE: 44 FR 20647, Apr. 6, 1979, unless otherwise noted.
890.1 Scope and applicability.
These rules prescribe the administrative procedure available to States and units of local government to challenge the current estimates of population or per capita income developed by the Bureau of the Census.
This part provides a procedure for a State or unit of local government to challenge the population or per capita income estimates of the Bureau. The Bureau shall receive these challenges and attempt to resolve them informally with the locality. If the challenge is not resolved informally, the challenging State or unit of local government may then, at its option, proceed formally.
890.2 Policy of the Bureau of the Cen
It is the policy of the Bureau of the Census to provide the most accurate population and per capita income estimates possible given the constraints of time, money, and available statistical techniques. It is also the policy of the Bureau to provide States and units of local government the opportunity to challenge these estimates and to present probative evidence relating to the accuracy of the estimates.
890.5 When an informal challenge may
be filed. An informal challenge to the population or per capita income estimates may be filed any time up to 180 days after the release of the estimates by the Bureau of the Census. Publication by the Bureau of the Census and simultaneous publication of a release notification in the FEDERAL REGISTER shall constitute release. A challenge to any estimate may also be filed any time up to 180 days from the date the Census Bureau, on its own initiative, revises that estimate. If, however, a State or unit of local government has sufficiently meritorious reason for not filing in a timely manner, the Census Bureau has the discretion to accept the challenge. [50 FR 28768, July 16, 1985]
As used in this part (except where the context clearly indicates otherwise) the following definitions shall apply:
(a) Bureau means the Bureau of the Census, Department of Commerce.
(b) Challenge means, in accordance with this part, the process of objecting to or calling into question the Bureau's population or per capita income estimates of a State or unit of local government by that State or unit of local government. A demand for adjustment to the General Revenue Sharing Act, Pub. L. 92–512, section 102(b), as amended (31 U.S.C. 1222(b)) does not constitute a challenge within the meaning of this part.
(c) Director means Director of the Bureau of the Census, or an individual designated by the Director to perform under this part.
(d) Estimate means a statistically derived intercensal population or per capita income figure prepared to update earlier census figures.
(e) State includes the District of Columbia.
(f) Unit of local government means the government of a county, municipality, township, place, or other minor civil division, which is a unit of general government below the State.
890.6 Where to file challenge.
A challenge must be prepared in writing by the unit of government and is to be filed with the Chief, Population Division, Bureau of the Census, Room 2011, Federal Building 3, Washington, D.C. 20233.
8 90.7 Evidence required.
The challenging State or unit of local government shall provide whatever evidence it has relative to the challenge at the time the challenge is filed. The Bureau may request further evidence.
8 90.8 Review of challenge.
The Chief, Population Division, Bureau of the Census, or the Chief's designee shall review the challenge and the evidence supporting the challenge and shall attempt to resolve the challenge.
