- United States Census MARCH 30, 2007 – The U.S. Census Bureau submitted to Congress the subjects it plans to address in the 2010 Census, which include gender, age, race, ethnicity, relationship and whether you own or rent your home. Estimated to take less than 10 minutes to complete, the 2010 Census would be one of the shortest and easiest to complete since the nation’s first census in 1790. The Census Bureau also submitted its planned subjects for the American Community Survey (ACS) — a new yearly survey that eliminates the need for a decennial long-form questionnaire, while providing key socioeconomic and housing data about the nation’s rapidly changing population every year rather than once a decade.
