Encyclopedia of the U.S. Census
From the Constitution to the American Community Survey

Second Edition


December 2011 | 488 pages | CQ Press
The Encyclopedia of the U.S. Census, Second Edition updates and expands a critically-acclaimed resource for the history, politics, content, procedures and uses of the decennial census of the American population. The new edition highlights changes in the Census Bureau's data collection and dissemination practices for the 2010 enumeration, including the use of a short-form questionnaire for the actual population count, and the release in late 2010 of the American Community Survey (ACS) 5-year data set based on rolling samples of the U.S. population and gathered using the long-form questionnaire. The Second Edition also comprehensively covers the fallout from the 2000 census and recent issues affecting the administration of the 2010 count. Click here for a comprehensive guide to the American Community Survey.

"This encyclopedia provides a valuable examination of the history and current status of the U.S. census. It will appeal to individuals interested in political science and history and is highly recommended for specialized reference collections."
