Demographic (People/Households) Surveys and Programs

The U.S. Census Bureau compiles information from demographic surveys to produce statistics that describe populations and their characteristics, such as age, education, housing and income. We collect this data by asking household members to provide information about the people who live in the house, apartment, mobile home or group housing.

The U.S. Census Bureau conducts more than 130 surveys each year, including our nation’s largest household survey, the American Community Survey. To find more information on a specific survey please select it from the list of surveys below.
