NMHC and NAA are part of The Census Project coalition, which sent detailed comment letters to the Senate and House Appropriations Committees urging an increase in funding for the 2020 Census and related American Community Survey. Both were dangerously underfunded in the Senate and House Commerce, Justice and Science Appropriations bills earlier this year.

The multifamily industry uses data from the two surveys for numerous purposes, including estimating the economic impact of the apartment industry, as well as providing members with latest data about the industry.
