American Community Survey
This page contains American Community Survey data. The American Community Survey is nationwide survey designed to provide communities a fresh look at how they are changing.
On Thursday 15, 2022 the U.S. Census Bureau released the 2021 American Community Survey (ACS) 1-Year Estimate data for social, economic, housing and demographic characteristics for the nation, all 50 states and the District of Columbia, every congressional district and all counties and places with populations of 65,000 or more. It is part of the full implementation of the survey, which will provide updated data on an annual basis for all levels of geography (including census tracts and block groups).
With the release of the Census Bureau’s online tool, data.census.gov, the Census Bureau released an online webinar "Navigating a New Site for Census Bureau Data", to aid data users. The webinar teaches how to access tables, maps, and profiles using multiple search methods. The Bureau also released three more specific guides for "Customizing and Downloading Tables", "Navigation", and "Visualizing Data". To learn more, see the Census's Bureaus data.census.gov resources, which provide Frequently Asked Questions, How-to Materials for Using data.census.gov, Video Tutorials, Webinars and more.
Visit 2021 Data Release page to learn about table and geography changes and the 2021 Comparison Guidance page to learn how these estimates compare to previous ACS estimates, 2020 Census, and 2010 Census.
