How Was Census 2010 Data Collection Changed?
In 2010, the Census Bureau changed how it collects decennial census data by eliminating the traditional "long form" and replacing it with "10 Questions in 10 Minutes" that captures key demographic information such as name, gender, age, date of birth, ethnicity, race, and homeownership status.
More detailed socioeconomic information previously collected through the decennial census is now collected through the American Community Survey (ACS).
