American Community Survey (ACS) data are used in federal, state, and local programs to assist tribal governments. All communities, including those with American Indian and Alaska Native residents, will benefit from the ACS. Participating in the ACS is important.

Data from the American Community Survey helps your community.

The information that the Census Bureau collects helps to determine how more that $675 billion dollars of federal funding each year is spent on infrastructure and services.

Tribal government officials: We need your help!

Encourage people to respond to the American Community Survey. The ACS is sent to a small number of addresses and the responses represent the entire community. Participating in the ACS is very important and every response improves the quality of our data.
