Browse archived sample American Community Survey questionnaires in English and Spanish with instruction guides from 1996 through present.
The Instruction Guide is no longer being mailed out to respondents. It was discontinued for housing units in 2017 and for group quarters in 2021. However, you can still find these instructions on our website. For instructions on responding to the survey, go to our Get Help Responding to the ACS page, or to the For People Living in Group Housing page (for group quarters only).
