US Census Bureau's American Community Survey
The American Community Survey (ACS) is an ongoing survey collected by the U.S. Census Bureau that provides vital information on a yearly basis about our nation and its people. Information from the survey generates data that help determine how more than $400 billion in federal and state funds are distributed each year. Surveys are collected from a sample of the nation's population for 1-year, 3-year and 5-year averages as a snapshot of the nation between each decennial Census.

Through the ACS, we know more about jobs and occupations, educational attainment, veterans, whether people own or rent their home, and other topics. Public officials, planners, and entrepreneurs use this information to assess the past and plan the future. When you respond to the ACS, you are doing your part to help your community plan hospitals and schools, support school lunch programs, improve emergency services, build bridges, and inform businesses looking to add jobs and expand to new markets, and more.
