Initial Addresses and Sample Selected and Final Interviews - United States
|Housing Units||Group Quarters People|
*As a result of the 2013 government shutdown, the ACS did not have a second mailing, a telephone followup, nor a person followup operation for the 2013 October panel. Only respondents from the first mailing (Internet in the United States, paper questionnaire in Puerto Rico) contribute to the overall response for this panel. This caused a drop in the number of Final Interviews (housing units) for the 2013 sample year.
1 Synthetic interviews were part of an effort to improve American Community Survey estimates of the group quarters population for substate areas. Synthetic interviews were created by imputing the characteristics of interviewed group quarters persons into group quarters facilities that were not in sample that year or period. Final actual interviews are the interviews obtained from sampled group quarters residents. For more information, read the ACS Group Quarters Small Area Estimation user note.
