The American Community Survey (ACS) releases new data every year through a variety of data tables that you can access with different data tools. Learn more about the different types of tables and profiles powered by ACS data. We also have information about other special datasets, such as the ACS Experimental Data, ACS Summary File, and ACS Public Use Microdata Sample (PUMS) files.
Check out data.census.gov, the Census Bureau's main data dissemination tool. Here, you can access tables and maps with ACS data. You can also view data.census.gov Resources for step-by-step guidance, video tutorials, FAQs, and more.
The Census Bureau did not release its standard 2020 ACS 1-year estimates because of the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic. Instead, the Census Bureau released experimental estimates from the 1-year data. They are posted on the 2020 ACS 1-Year Experimental Data Release page; they are not available on data.census.gov.
Data Profiles contain the most popular social, economic, housing, and demographic data for a single geographic area. The Data Profiles summarize the data, providing both estimates and percentages, to cover the most basic data on all ACS topics. Click on a link below to view these profiles on data.census.gov. From there, you can select Customize Table to select your geography and product (or data set) of interest.
