In addition, there is an increased interest in obtaining data for small subpopulations such as groups within the Hispanic, Asian, and American Indian populations, the elderly, and children. The ACS provides current data throughout the decade for small areas and subpopulations. Using the Master Address File (MAF) from the decennial census, which is updated each year, we select a sample of addresses and mail survey materials each month to a new group of potential households. Most households are asked first to complete the survey via the Internet, with a paper questionnaire provided to those households that do not respond via Internet. We then attempt to conduct interviews over the telephone with households that have not responded either by mail or Internet. Upon completion of the telephone follow-up, we select a sub-sample of the remaining households that have not responded either by mail, Internet, or telephone and designate the household for a personal interview. Typically, for personal interviews, we sample at a rate of one in three. We also conduct interviews with a sample of residents at a selected group quarters (GQ) facilities. Collecting these data from a new sample of housing units (HUs) and GQ facilities every month provides more timely data and lessens respondent burden in the Decennial Census. The goals of the ACS are to: • Provide federal, state, and local governments an information base for the administration and evaluation of government programs; and • Provide data users with timely demographic, housing, social, and economic data updated every year that can be compared across states, communities, and population groups. The content of the proposed 2014 ACS questionnaire and data collection instruments for both housing unit and group quarters operations reflect changes to content and instructions that were proposed in 2012. A two-part question on Health Insurance Premiums and Subsidies will be added. The race question will be modified to remove the term ‘‘Negro’’ from the ‘‘Black, African Am., or Negro’’ response category. Additional response categories will be added for housing units classified as ‘‘other vacant’’ to provide information that is more precise. Finally, the Number of Times Married question will be removed. Affected Public: Individuals or households. Frequency: Response to the ACS is on a one-time basis.
