American Community Survey

The U.S. Census Bureau conducts the largest household survey in the United States, the American Community Survey (ACS). Each year, more than 12,000 addresses in Alaska are selected to respond to the ACS. The ACS replaced the decennial census long form nationwide after the 2000 Census.

The U.S. Census Bureau compiles information from household surveys to produce statistics that describe populations and their characteristics, such as age, education, housing and income. This data is collected by asking household members to provide information about the people who live in the house, apartment, mobile home or group housing.
