The most substantial change in the decennial census in more than 60 years can be found in The Who, What, and Where of America: Understanding the American Community Survey. Finally-a reference that helps you understand what the Census Bureau's surveys tells us about Americans! This new addition to the County and City Extra series brings new American Community Survey (ACS) data together into one, convenient volume. The ACS will replace the decennial census long form in 2010 and thereafter by collecting long-form-type information annually rather than only once every 10 years, providing more current data throughout the decade. The ACS data will provide, for the first time, a regular stream of updated information for states and local areas and will revolutionize the way we use data to understand our communities. It produces social, housing, and economic characteristics for demographic groups.

These research aids are invaluable for helping researchers understand what the census long form data tell us about who we are, what we do, and where we live. Each part contains four tables for areas with populations greater than 20,000: • Table A. States • Table B.Counties • Table C. Metropolitan Areas • Table D. Cities In 2008, the ACS released its first multiyear estimates based on data collected from 2005 through 2007. The ACS's multiyear data allows small towns and communities to track how they are changingon an ongoing basis. The ACS is designed to provide communities with a fresh look at how they are changing. It is a critical element in the Census Bureau's reengineered decennial census program. The ACS collects information such as: • age and race • mari
