  • The long form has been eliminated for Census 2010 and going forward. Therefore, the detailed data that was previously collected on the long form is being collected through the American Community Survey. This includes detailed information on social, economic, housing and other demographic subjects. Care must be taken in comparing ACS data to archival Census data and one should note the margin of errors when using the data.
  • Per the US Census Bureau, "generally, you can compare American Community Survey (ACS) 3-year and 5-year estimates with Census 2000 data. There are differences in the universe, question wording, residence rules, reference periods, and the way in which the data are tabulated which can impact comparability." Note that data from the American Community Survey may have significant Margin of Error estimates. Click here for more information and comparison guides and tools.
