How is the American Community Survey engaging stakeholders, and what improvements are in the works as a result of feedback? Senior staff from the U.S. Census Bureau will describe current discussions with key stakeholders, including Congress, along with plans to improve public messaging about the nation’s largest household survey. Tim Olson, the agency’s first-ever Respondent Advocate, will share feedback from both respondents and Congressional offices that are supporting legislation to make the ACS voluntary. Tasha Boone will discuss how the Census Bureau can provide better data, increase response rates, and increase awareness of the survey.
