  American Community Survey - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The American Community Survey (ACS) is a project of the U.S. Census Bureau that replaces the long form in the decennial census.
Many Americans found filling out the long form to be burdensome, and its unpopularity was a factor in the declining response rate to the decennial census.
The planned sample will be 3 million households in the U.S., in every county, American Indian and Alaska Native area, Hawaiian Home Land, and in Puerto Rico.

 NAR - Smart Growth America - 2004 American Community Survey   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-13)
Americans place a high value on limiting their commute times and are more likely to see improved public transportation and changing patterns of housing development as the solutions to longer commutes than increasing road capacities.
The survey found that approximately one-third believe that developing communities where people do not have to drive long distances is the best answer while less than two in ten believe the answer is to build new roads.
With costs being equal, a smart growth community was described for purposes of this survey as a mix of apartments, condos, townhouses and single-family detached houses on various sized lots with sidewalks and places to shop, eat, read and go to school within walking distance.

DESCRIPTION: The National Survey of Midlife Development in the United States (MIDUS) is a collaborative, interdisciplinary investigation of patterns, predictors, and consequences of midlife development in the areas of physical health, psychological well-being, and social responsibility.
Respondents were asked to provide extensive information on their physical and mental health throughout their adult lives, and to assess the ways in which their lifestyles, including relationships and work-related demands, contributed to the conditions experienced.
Additionally, the Twins sample was asked a series of questions about their birth, shared physical characteristics, childhood and adult relationships with their twin, whether they were dressed alike as children, and whether others experienced difficulty identifying them correctly.

The ACS is more timely and relevant than the decennial census long form it replaces, providing decision-makers, communities and businesses with current information about their changing populations every year, rather than once a decade.
The survey is an improved way to allocate states' shares of more than $200 billion a year in federal and state funding currently allotted based on five-year old census long-form data.
Once those data are collected, though, the Census Bureau will release tabulations based on rolling three-year averages annually for areas with populations between 20,000 and 65,000, and rolling five-year averages annually for areas as small as census tracts (see timeline and additional materials at http://www.census.gov/acs/www.

This study will examine the functionality and usability of data from the American Community Survey (ACS), the ongoing continuous survey that the U.S. Census Bureau intends to implement as replacement for the decennial census long form (thus permitting the 2010 decennial census to collect only those basic data items currently on the census short form).
The main charge of the panel would be to study the effects of introducing estimate based on multi-year measurements (including moving averages) into applications where static long-form estimates are currently applied.
The major goal is to provide a base of information to ease the transition from the long form to the ACS for a wide variety of organizations and individual data users.

 Review of the American Community Survey
The U.S. Governmental Accountability Office (GAO) has released a report that reviews operational and programmatic aspects of the U.S. Census Bureau’s American Community Survey (ACS).
The ACS will be a mail survey of about 3 million households annually, whose results will be cumulated over 5 years to produce estimates that will replace information previously provided by the Decennial Census long form.
The GAO report recommends that the U.S. Secretary of Commerce direct the Census Bureau to revise the ACS evaluation and testing plan, give stakeholders meaningful input on related decisions, make the underlying survey information public, and set a schedule for incorporating operational and programmatic changes into the 5-year averages for 2008–12.
