DMTV #10: The Decennial U.S. Census and the American Community Survey…What’s Different this Time?
What's different about the 2010 Decennial U.S. Census? While we've all received the 10 question survey from the Census Bureau, there is one big change this year...the "long form" is gone! So, if you were one of the lucky ones in the past who had to complete a more lengthy form that allowed the Census Bureau to collect more specific demographics, you will be disappointed. In 2010, the American Community Survey (ACS) officially replaces the long form. In this episode of DMTV, we look at how the ACS will be conducted for 2010 and beyond.
