www.respond.census.gov/acs – Take US Census Bureau Survey

Respond Cenus ACS

  • Take the American Community Survey online
  • U.S. Census Bureau is required by law to keep the responders information confidential
  • Please have the 10-digit User ID found below the bar code on the mailing materials on hand when taking the survey

Respond.Census.gov/ACS is operated by the United States Government and the Census Bureau is not permitted to publicly release the responders responses in a way that could identify this household.  The Federal Cybersecurity Enhancement Act of 2015 protects the responder from bothersome cybersecurity risks through screening of the systems that transmit the responders information.  Respondents are not required to respond to any information collection unless it displays a valid approval number from the Office of Management and Budget.  Although some might find this as a bothersome task the survey is very important in order to collect data within the United States and who is living where.
