The U.S. Census Bureau is scheduled to hold a pre-release webinar about the 2018-2022 American Community Survey (ACS), 5-year estimates, set to be publicly released December 7. The webinar will explain how to access data and online resources from the ACS as well as provide tips for comparing geographies and statistics over time.
The ACS provides a wide range of statistics about the nation’s people and housing, such as language spoken at home, education, commuting, employment, mortgage status and rent, and income, poverty and health insurance coverage. It is the only source of local estimates for most of the 40-plus topics it covers.
The statistics will be available to embargo subscribers beginning Dec. 5 at 10 a.m. ET for all states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, all congressional districts and metropolitan statistical areas, counties, places, census tracts, ZIP Code Tabulation Areas, and block groups.
Embargo subscribers will have access to these statistics from Tuesday, Dec. 5, at 10 a.m. ET, to Thursday, Dec. 7, at 12:01 a.m. ET. Wire and distribution services are prohibited from distributing embargoed news stories and data files before the public release date and time. For more information, view the Census Bureau’s embargo policy. All datasets will be available to the public by 10 a.m. ET, Dec. 7.
