This document provides the justification for the items included in the 2010 Census (short-form) and the ACS (long-form). It includes proposed new subjects, as well as the subjects that will be dropped because it is no longer required by federal agencies.

New Questions and Modifications in the ACS (2009)
Information for each of the new questions that were added to the 2009 ACS: health insurance coverage, Bachelor's field of degree, disability, marital history, and other new tables. Additionally, modifications were performed on food stamps tables and other tables.
