Why is the ACS Program Review being conducted?
In December 2010, the ACS program reached an important milestone with the release of its first set of 5-year estimates, providing detailed statistics for even the smallest communities. With this achievement, it is prudent to take a step back and conduct a comprehensive assessment of the ACS program to ensure that it is meeting the needs of data product users as effectively and efficiently as possible. In order to obtain a broader and more robust perspective, the Director of the Census Bureau and the ACS Program Review Team would like to get input from our stakeholders on four ACS program components: data products, methodology, research and evaluation, and communications and stakeholder management.
Who is being contacted to provide feedback?
We are requesting feedback from a wide array of stakeholders, including federal agencies, think tanks, statistical organizations, state, local, and tribal government groups and individuals.
What is the deadline for providing feedback?
