June 14, 2007
Kin Koerber


This report is one in a series that compares data from the American Community Survey (ACS) with data from the Annual Social and Economic Supplement (ASEC) to the Current Population Survey (CPS). This report focuses on comparisons of national distributions of migration (where people resided 1 year ago) between the 2004 ACS and the 2004 ASEC. In this analysis, we compare the 2004 ACS and 2004 ASEC distributions, look for differences that are both statistically and substantively different, and for those found, offer possible explanations. The analysis is restricted to data for people living in housing units.
