This week, The Census Project covered two letters from influential groups calling on Congress to support a strong ACS. The first letter, which MACS covered, was a strong statement from a broad coalition of influential business leaders.
The second letter, on behalf of 20 regional and local chambers of commerce in cities such as Charleston, SC, Houston, Louisville, Ky, and St. Louis, business leaders explained that:
“Business and industry rely on accurate, comprehensive census and ACS data to spur economic development, sustain and create jobs, revitalize communities, allocate resources, invest wisely, compete globally, provide value to customers, develop strategy, guide operations, and more.”
