Quality The FCRS is a probability survey. Estimates from the survey
differ from data that would have been obtained if a complete
enumeration had been taken. For the FCRS, the reliability of an
estimate can be measured by its standard error; the larger the
standard error, the lower the reliability of the estimate.
