How do respondents’ answers to a Census Bureau question about their race vary depending on the type of question asked? How do response rates and costs vary depending on the data collection mode for the American Community Survey? And how might better question wording improve inaccurate responses to Census survey questions about same-sex marriage?

These and other census-related topics were among those explored in presentations at the recent annual conference of the American Association of Public Opinion Research. Abstracts of the papers are available at the AAPOR website, along with email addresses of the authors.
