American Community Survey

The mission of the subcommittee on American Community Survey (ACS) is to advise the Chief Statistician and Census Bureau Director consistent with key governing policies and practices for the ACS from the perspective of the Federal statistical system. It will provide advice to the Director of the Census Bureau and the Chief Statistician at OMB on how the American Community Survey (ACS) can best fulfill its role in the portfolio of Federal household surveys and provide the most useful information with the least amount of burden. It may also advise Census Bureau technical staff on issues they request the subcommittee to examine or that otherwise arise in discussions.
