Hi everyone –
Thought you’d like to see the program for the Association of Public Data Users conference.
Please consider attending the conference!
Of particular note, the session on integrating administrative records with the ACS. Deb
Stempowski, Chief, American Community Survey is scheduled to speak. As you know, the
Census Bureau needs to do all it can to reduce costs for the ACS and the next decennial
This topic is very important! Some items like age and at least some questions about
income (e.g. Social Security) seem very reliable from administrative records, does this
mean that there will be MORE IMPUTATION of the journey-to-work and vehicle ownership
questions if the field follow-up rate is reduced and replaced with use of administrative
records? Assuming there is more imputation, how much will this increase in imputation
“cost” in terms of reliability and usability for small area transportation zones?

Reducing Respondent Burden: Integrating Administrative Records with the American
There are tremendous concerns in political circles about ACS. Are there other ways to
collect the data required for ACS that does not require a survey? As the Census explores
design options for ACS, what nontraditional data collection strategies might Census
employ? What are the challenges and opportunities? What administrative data sources
might prove most fruitful to supplement and strengthen the ACS?
