American Community Survey Operations Plan

a PSC Data Resource

Resource Source:U.S. Census Bureau


The American Community Survey Operations Plan identifies and documents the individual components of the American Community Survey (ACS) and describes projects associated with making the transition from a demonstration program to a production survey. The Plan is intended to serve as a reference manual, and to assist communication and understanding about the ACS Program within and outside the Census Bureau. A glossary of ACS abbreviations and acronyms is attached.

This document is denominated as “Release 1,” as the Census Bureau anticipates re-publishing the Plan periodically to reflect design and operational developments.
