Proposed Format Change to Simplify the ACS Summary File

The Census Bureau's American Community Survey (ACS) Office is currently testing a new format for the ACS Summary File. The ACS Summary File is a comma-delimited text file that contains all the Detailed Tables for the ACS. In this webinar Mathew Key reviews the changes the Census Bureau is exploring, Bonan Ren gives a live demonstration of the test format, and Caleb Hopler explains how to review this format and provide feedback. Their presentations were followed by 30 minutes of Q&A. See Updates to the ACS Summary File for more information.

Panelists:
Caleb Hopler, Survey Statistician, American Community Survey Office
Matthew Key, IT Specialist, American Community Survey Office
Bonan Ren, IT Specialist, American Community Survey Office
