History of the Telephone Service Question

The telephone service question originated with the 1960 decennial census and was transferred to the American Community Survey (ACS) in 2005, when it replaced the decennial census long form. The current telephone service question (pictured) was added to the ACS in 2008.

The ACS asks about telephone service to ensure residents can communicate. We measure the extent of telephone service to help communities ensure their residents have universal access to assistance programs, emergency services and important information.
