CREC Participates in U.S. Census Bureau Briefing

February 3, 2015

CREC participated in a U.S. Census Bureau briefing by Director, John Thompson, regarding the planned termination of the 3-year estimates produced by the American Community Survey (ACS).

The American Community Survey (ACS) is a mandatory, ongoing statistical survey by the U.S. Census Bureau that samples a small percentage of the population every year — giving communities the 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.
