COMPARABILITY

Mona Bormet

American Community Survey data users often want to compare the current data with data from Census 2000 and previous American Community Survey releases. Clips will reflect upon some of the comparisons that might be inappropriate due to differences in questions, methods, definitions (such as: residence rules), changes in geographic boundaries, universes and reference periods. Overtime questionnaires have been revised to better address some topics that in the past have just been lightly touched upon, but now have a more prominent role in current society reporting.
