Upcoming Workshop on Improving the American Community Survey

(Apologies for cross-posting... members of this group are often not also members of the "Basics" discussion forum where this was originally posted)

The U.S. Census Bureau requested the Committee on National Statistics (CNSTAT) convene a workshop to discuss recent methodological research conducted by the Census Bureau to improve the ACS.

The workshop will address evaluating administrative data as a replacement for survey questions, which may also improve accuracy and/or reduce costs. It will also examine efforts to improve communication materials provided to respondents to encourage response as well as the follow-up procedures with respondents.

The workshop will be held September 26-27, 2018 at The Keck Center of the National Academies in Washington, DC. and will also be available via the web.
