The American Community Survey provides a wide range of important statistics about people and housing for every community in the nation. This survey is the only source of local estimates for most of the more than 40 topics it covers for communities across the nation. For example, it produces statistics for language, education, commuting, employment, mortgage status and rent, as well as income, poverty and health insurance.
The American Community Survey 5-year statistics, based on data collected from 2015 to 2019, will be released on Thursday, Dec. 10. These statistics cover all geographic areas regardless of size, down to the block-group level. For the first time, users will be able to compare three nonoverlapping five-year periods (2005-2009, 2010-2014, and 2015-2019).
