Substantive changes for 2020 are minor. The ACS will adopt the final version of the race and Hispanic origin questions that will be implemented for the 2020 Census. The ACS will also change the instruction for reporting babies’ ages to match the 2020 Census.

Feel free to contact AEA staff Kitty Smith Evans kitty.s.evans@aeaweb.org and Andrew Reamer areamer@gwu.edu for guidance on making comments with impact.
