In 2003 the Census Bureau conducted research to assess cost and workload implications of a voluntary versus mandatory implementation of the American Community Survey (ACS). U.S. Census Bureau (2003) and U.S. Census Bureau (2004) document key findings from that test. In 2011 additional analyses of data from that test led to updated cost and workload projections (U.S. Census Bureau, 2011). The recent ACS sample expansion and the plans to implement an Internet response option in 2013 will have important effects on the costs and workloads for both mandatory and voluntary implementations. This report provides our best estimates of the costs and workloads that may be associated with a voluntary ACS based on the design and methods planned for 2013.
