In the United States, researchers, policy analysts, and the general public have two rich sources of information on housing-the American Housing Survey (AHS) and the American Community Survey (ACS). The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) sponsored this project to help users exploit the housing information in these surveys effectively. This report documents the similarities and differences between the two surveys and compares estimates of key housing statistics from the two surveys.
