FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:  MONDAY, NOV. 26, 2012

Media Advisory — Census Bureau to Host Web Conference on 2007-2011 American Community Survey Estimates that Provide Statistics for Every Community across the Nation

What:

The U.S. Census Bureau will hold a Web conference to discuss the Dec. 6 release of the 2007-2011 American Community Survey estimates. The webinar will include guidance on how to access and use the upcoming five-year estimates and a question-and-answer session. Embargo subscribers will have access to the estimates beginning Tuesday, Dec. 4. The embargoed information may not be published or posted until the public release at 12:01 a.m. Dec. 6.

The American Community Survey provides a wide range of important statistics about people and housing for every community across the nation. The results are used by everyone from retailers and homebuilders to town and city planners. The survey is the only source of local estimates for most of the 40 topics it covers, such as education, occupation, language, ancestry and housing costs for even the smallest communities. Ever since Thomas Jefferson directed the first census in 1790, the census has collected detailed characteristics about our nation's people, and questions about our economy were added under President Madison in 1810.

Please dial in by phone to listen to a simultaneous audio conference while viewing the online presentation. A question-and-answer session will follow the presentation.

When:

Monday, Dec. 3, 2012; 1 p.m. (EST)

Who:

Barbara Downs, chief, Data Analysis and User Education Branch; American Community Survey Office
