Overview of the American Community Survey 2014 Content Review (April 9, 2014)

The American Community Survey (ACS) is the nation's largest household survey. It provides detailed social, economic, housing, and demographic statistics for large and small communities. The Census Bureau is in the process of reviewing each question on the ACS to make sure the survey includes only those questions federal agencies need to accomplish their missions. They also want to minimize the reporting burden on the 3.5 million households that respond to the survey each year. In this webinar, Gary Chappell, project lead for the ACS Content Review process at the U.S. Census Bureau, discusses the goals, approach, outreach to data users, and next steps during 2014. His presentation is followed by 15 minutes of questions and answers. An archived recording of this webinar is available online.
