American Community Survey

Replacement of the Census long-from with the American Community Survey has destroyed the capacity to perform multi-census analysis of many data series. Many factors for which it was previously possible to make highly reliable estimates even for small geographies, it is no longer possible to do so. The future holds great promise for those that can combine the data collected in the 2010 census with the data available through the American community survey to make accurate inferences about the broader population.
