The American Community Survey (ACS) is an ongoing survey that provides data every year - giving communities the current information they need to plan investments and services. Information from the survey generates data that help determine how more than $400 billion in federal and state funds are distributed each year.
To help communities, state governments, and federal programs, the US Census Bureau gathers information about:
- family and relationships
- income and benefits
- health insurance
- veteran status
- where you work and how you get there
- where you live and how much you pay for essentials
