Survey and Topic One-Pagers

These topical one-pagers are meant to be an introduction to some of the topics, programs and surveys offered by the Census Bureau for survey respondents and users of Census data. In these informational one-pagers, we address some of the most frequently asked questions to better assist with your data needs.

Here are examples of some of the questions we try to address within the one-pagers:

  • Why we collect this data?
  • How often is this survey, topic or program conducted?
  • Whether it is a mandated or voluntary census or survey?
  • What data is available and how users may access the information?
