New Data Every Year!

The American Community Survey collects data on an ongoing basis, January through December, to provide every community with the information they need to make important decisions.

We release new data every year, in the form of estimates, in a variety of tables, tools, and analytical reports, provided here: Data Profiles, Narrative Profiles, Easy Stats, My Congressional District, or ACS Data Briefs.

Or use these links for additional resources from around the Census Bureau:

See our Tables/Tools Chart for more details on datasets available through each product or tool.
