U.S. Census Bureau Seeks Feedback on the American Community Survey

The U.S. Census Bureau is attempting to learn about the ways people and organizations use the American Community Survey (ACS) data. Implemented in the 1990s, the ACS is a mandatory, ongoing statistical survey that samples a small percentage of the population every year, providing communities with information to assist them in planning investments and services. By the late 1990s, the ACS had tested and adopted disability questions developed for the Census 2000 sample survey. Survey questions related to disability and function have been modified over the years, making the ACS a valuable source of data about people with disabilities in the United States.

The ACS is used by many nonprofits in grant applications and funding requests. To help improve the ACS, the Census Bureau is requesting that organizations or people who use the ACS provide feedback by completing a brief survey. Responses are due before July 18th, 2014.
