2010 Decennial Census Program

Major Components of the Reengineering Effort

  • American Community Survey

  • MAF/TIGER Enhancements Program

  • 2010 Census


Fernando armstrong

American Community Survey

  • A monthly random sample of housing units and group quarters– roughly 3 million housing units and 20,000 group quarters per year.

  • Full implementation started in 2005; thus the first data release of the fully implemented ACS for housing units occurred in 2006.

  • Will provide estimates of detailed characteristics every year for all states, and for all cities, counties, metropolitan areas, and population groups of 65,000 people or more.

  • It will take 5 years to accumulate sufficient sample to produce estimates for areas as small as census tracts; data will be published for all areas and groups of 20,000 or more every year starting in 2008 using an accumulation of 3 years of data.

  • These estimates will then be updated every year.
