The U.S. Census Bureau conducts the American Housing Survey (AHS) for the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) under Title 13, U.S. Code, Section 9 mandate to not “use the information furnished under the provisions of this title for any purpose other than the statistical purposes for which it is supplied; or make any publication whereby the data furnished by any particular establishment or individual under this title can be identified; or permit anyone other than the sworn officers and employees of the Department or bureau or agency thereof to examine the individual reports (13 U.S.C. § 9 (2007)).” The Census Bureau applies Disclosure Avoidance (DA) techniques to its publicly released statistical products in order to protect the confidentiality of its respondents and their data. None of the information in this paper is confidential.
