Audio - Profile America

On April 30, 2022, the U.S. Census Bureau's daily podcast Profile America Audio ended its 25-year run. In its place, we have launched By the Numbers, a new monthly spotlight on notable observances, anniversaries, and historical events.

Profile America Audio was launched in 1997.  Its one-minute audio clips and scripts have connected our data to a wide range of familiar – and sometimes overlooked – holidays, anniversaries, observances, celebrations, and historic events.

Over the years, its distribution has reflected changing technology and our listeners’ preferences as we’ve shifted from packaging and mailing audio CDs to today's anywhere, anytime online playbacks and downloads. 

Thank you for supporting Profile America by subscribing, downloading, broadcasting, commenting, and listening!

We welcome your questions, comments, and feedback. Email us at census.by.the.numbers@census.gov.
