The Census Bureau is in the process of reviewing each question in the American Community Survey (ACS) to make sure the survey includes only those questions federal agencies need to accomplish their missions, and to minimize the reporting burden on the 3.5 million households that respond to the survey each year. In this webinar, we will discuss results of the first phase of the project, public comments received in response to a 60-day Federal Register notice published about the results, and next steps. The presentation will be followed by 10-15 minutes of questions and answers.
