I am trying to examine some measures from the ACS and ATUS which have known differences to highlight and explain those differences. I have noticed that the CPS/ATUS appear to sample from the set of all civilian, noninstitutional households. By contrast, the ACS includes institutions and the armed forces.
Would excluding group quarters from the ACS bring these sampling frames closest together? I could also apply information on ACS respondents employed in the armed forces, but I cannot tell if this would be an appropriate restriction.
