Q:  

What types of institutions are considered "group quarters" in the 2006 ACS? How will the inclusion of GQ affect comparisons with previous ACS?

A:  

The universe for the ACS in 2006 is the total population (households and group quarters). This will have an impact on comparisons between 2005 and 2006 for places with large group quarters populations (communities with prisons, military bases, or college populations).
