This report provides input on ways of improving the U.S. Census Bureau’s American Community Survey (ACS), focusing on two priority areas: identifying methods that could improve the quality of the data available for small areas, and suggesting changes that would increase the survey's efficiency in responding to new data needs. This report considers changes that the ACS office should consider over the course of the next few years in order to further improve the ACS data and offers recommendations that will help the U.S. Census Bureau improve performance in several areas, which could lead to improved data products as the survey enters its next decade.
