New MPO designations require Special Census to Certify Population

To get started, you must ask for a Cost Estimate for a Special Census. There is a $200 fee to request a cost estimate. http://www.census.gov/regions/specialcensus/

The Census Bureau says a ballpark estimate for a special census for an area with about 50,000 population would be between $650,000 and $750,000. A major factor is the local wage rate for field staff conducting the census.
