Version V1

The American Community Survey (ACS) is a nationwide survey designed to provide communities a fresh look at how they are changing. It will replace the decennial long form in future censuses and is a critical element in the Bureau of the Census reengineered 2010 census. The American Community Survey is conducted under the authority of Title 13, United States Code, Sections 141 and 193, and response is mandatory. The scope of the 1996 ACS was limited to housing units, occupied and vacant, in four sites: (1) Brevard County, Florida, a single county MSA, (2) Rockland County, New York, NY Primary Metropolitan Statistical Area (PMSA), (3) Multnomah County, Oregon, and the city of Portland, Oregon, a large nonmetropolitan county that is part of multiple county PMSA (includes the entire city of Portland which is located primarily in Multnomah County but also extends into Washington and Clackamas Counties), (4) Fulton County, Pennsylvania, a nonmetropolitan county that does not have a countywide address system at this time, and does not plan to convert to a countywide address system at the time of the survey.
