Can you remove my address from the ACS sample?

No. An address may not be removed from the American Community Survey (ACS) sample as the validity of sample data would quickly decline if selected households were removed.

We try to keep the number of households in the sample as small as possible in order to limit the cost of the survey and reduce the impact on respondents. An address probably will not be included in the ACS survey more than once in a five-year period.
