/SURVEY//



GENTEXT/REMARKS/1.  EVERY TEN YEARS THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT CONDUCTS A
CENSUS OF THE POPULATION AND HOUSING OF THE UNITED STATES TO COLLECT
STATISTICAL INFORMATION WHICH ALLOWS GOVERNMENT AGENCIES TO MAKE
IMPORTANT RESOURCE DECISIONS.  IN PAST DECENNIAL CENSUS SURVEYS,
MOST PEOPLE RECEIVED A SHORT FORM TO COLLECT BASIC DATA, WHILE ONE
IN SIX HOUSING UNITS RECEIVED A LONG FORM CENSUS SURVEY.  THE CENSUS
BUREAU HAS DESIGNED THE AMERICAN COMMUNITY SURVEY (ACS) TO REPLACE
THE CENSUS LONG FORM FOR THE 2010 CENSUS.  THE ACS IS CONDUCTED
MONTHLY AMONG A SMALL SAMPLE OF THE POPULATION TO PRODUCE A TIMELY
STATISTICAL PICTURE OF TRENDS THAT AFFECT OUR NATION.  INDIVIDUALS

    F.  SUPERINTENDENT, U.S. NAVAL ACADEMY WILL COORDINATE ACS AND

4.  THE FOLLOWING GENERAL PROCEDURES WILL BE USED TO COORDINATE THE

BUREAU OF GQ THAT WILL BE SURVEYED FOR THE UPCOMING YEAR AND THE

    B.  AS APPLICABLE, AN ECHELON II AND III ACS COORDINATOR FOR
EACH SELECTED GQ WILL BE ASSIGNED.  A LIST OF THESE COORDINATORS
WILL BE PROVIDED TO CNO (N1/NT) TO FORWARD TO THE CENSUS BUREAU.
    C.  THE CENSUS BUREAU REPRESENTATIVE WILL CONTACT THE DESIGNATED
