Are You Ready for the American Community Survey?
With its first release of 5-year data sets�for small geographic areas in December of 2010,�the U.S. Census Bureau reaches an important milestone in the development of its American Community Survey (ACS).� Adapting to changes introduced by the ACS framework will require some adjustment by the�research community, policy-makers,�the media, and other data users who have grown accustomed to�using�decennial census data.� This report provides a brief overview of the American Community Survey (ACS).� A true-false quiz allows readers who are already familiar with the ACS to test their readiness for using the 5-year estimates.� The report also�describes where to locate ACS data and where to find guidance in using ACS data.
