It replaces the "long form" of the decennial census. This report of a panel of the National Research Council's Committee on National Statistics provides detailed, comprehensive analysis and guidance for users in federal, state, and local government agencies, academia, and the media." "Chapters for users cover the basics of how the ACS design and operations differ from the long-form sample, using the ACS for such applications as formula allocation of federal and stale funds, transportation planning, and public information; and challenges in working with ACS estimates that cover periods of 12, 36, or 60 months depending on the population size of an area." "The report also recommends priority areas for continued research and development by the Census Bureau to guide the evolution of the ACS."--Jacket."@en ;
