This handbook provides an overview of the Census Bureau’s Puerto Rico Community Survey (PRCS), which is the equivalent of the American Community Survey for Puerto Rico. The purpose is to help general audiences understand the basics of the PRCS, its opportunities and challenges, and how to access and use the PRCS data on the Census Bureau’s Web site. It concludes with examples of how PRCS data can be used to answer real questions about demographic and social-economic aspects of the Puerto Rican society. A glossary and a series of technical appendixes are also included at the back of this handbook for those interested in more advanced ACS/PRCS issues and applications.
