The Census Bureau will hold a Web news conference simultaneous with the release of the first set of 5-year (2005-2009) American Community Survey (ACS) estimates. The release provides timely and detailed estimates on 72 social, economic, housing and demographic topics for all communities — more than 670,000 distinct geographic areas. The first set, to be released Dec. 14, is based on survey responses spanning the five years between January 1, 2005 and December 31, 2009. A new set of 5-year estimates will be released every year, covering the most recent five-year period.
The event will consist of an audio conference and online presentation. Reporters will be able to ask questions during the audio conference once the presentations are complete.
