House Votes Not to Fund the American Community Survey

The House passed a budget bill for the Census which eliminates funding for the American Community Survey.  The headline at Business Week states "Killing the American Community Survey Blinds Business."  The Washington Times notes that the "House Reins in Census Bureau, Justice."   The director of the Census has a blog with information and a video.  The director comments, "Modern societies need current, detailed social and economic statistics; the US is losing them." 

Stay tuned.  If you read this blog on a regular basis you've probably noticed that we regularly feature postings on the Census.  It's our go to place for statistics when we answer reference questions.
