Leading up to the annual release of new datasets, the Census Bureau publishes a schedule, notes about new estimates or new guidance, and technical information about geography and product changes. Users can also browse the notes from previous years using the tabs below.
The FY 2014 budget for the Department of Commerce and the Census Bureau reflects an effort to balance the desire to fund the many important statistical programs and services the Census Bureau provides within the current budget environment. That effort required the U.S. Census Bureau to make some difficult resource allocation decisions, which unfortunately resulted in the suspension of the Boundary and Annexation Survey (BAS) in 2014.
As a result, the 2014 ACS estimates do not reflect boundary updates from legal annexations, but new incorporations, disincorporations and legal name changes are included.
