[USA] American Community Survey To Offer Internet Response

Posted by: Jan Meisels Allen

The American Community Survey is an ongoing statistical survey that samples a small percentage of the population every year to help with economic development.  It is a replacement for the US census long-form . The American Community Survey is performed annually rather once a decade (as is the census)  by sending it to approximately 250,000 American households monthly ( 3 million a year).
 
Thomas Mesenbourg, the Census Bureau's acting director, announced on December 17 that they will now permit an online response as an option.
