Description
  • Abstract

    The American Community Survey (ACS) is a nationwide survey designed to provide communities a fresh look at how they are changing. It will replace the decennial long form in future censuses and is a critical element in the Bureau of the Census reengineered 2010 census. The American Community Survey is conducted under the authority of Title 13, United States Code, Sections 141 and 193, and response is mandatory. The scope of the 1997 ACS was limited to housing units, occupied and vacant, in nine sites: (1) Rockland County, New York, (2) Fulton County, Pennsylvania, (3) Multnomah County and the city of Portland, Oregon, (4) Douglas County, Nebraska, (5) Franklin County, Ohio, (6) Harris and Fort Bend Counties (Houston), Texas, (7) Otero County, New Mexico, (8) Broward County, Florida, and (9) Richland and Kershaw Counties, South Carolina. Data from Pennsylvania and New Mexico were not released.
