Reviewing the Content on the American Community Survey
If you use and rely on American Community Survey statistics, we want to hear about it!
We take very seriously our responsibility to minimize the burden on households that receive the American Community Survey (ACS). We also take seriously our job to collect the information the nation needs to govern effectively.
The data collected in the ACS are critical for communities nationwide. At the same time, the public expects that the collection of information should be as minimally burdensome and intrusive as possible.
The Census Bureau regularly reviews the justifications for questions asked on the ACS to ensure that only the information needed is requested, and that the justifications provided by federal agencies for the ACS questions are current and valid.
As part of this content review, we will be posting an online survey in January that will ask for your thoughts and feedback on each question asked in the survey.
To receive notice when we post the feedback survey, please subscribe here.
In the meantime, for more information about ACS questions, please visit Questions on the form and why we ask.
