Census starts to equip data capture centers for decennial count

The Census Bureau in June brought systems online for the first of three data capture centers that will process forms for the 2000 Decennial Census.

The Baltimore Census 2000 Data Capture Center in Essex, Md., installed the first Data Capture System 2000, developed by Lockheed Martin Corp. A Docutronix 2000 sorter will read census bar codes and count, sort and selectively open incoming envelopes. Some of the 2,500 temporary employees at the Baltimore center will use 17-inch Dell OptiPlex Gx1 color monitors to view forms the system could not read and to key in changes.

TRW Inc. has managed the design, construction, training and operation of the centers. The vendor will roll out the system later this year at two other centers in Phoenix and Pomona, Calif.
