2016-2020 American Community Survey 5-year estimates are now available, including the Public Use Microdata Sample (PUMS) Files and Variance Replicate Estimate (VRE) Tables.

2020 American Community Survey 1-Year Experimental Data Webinar

Learn more about the release of estimates from the American Community Survey (ACS) 1-year data using experimental weights. The ACS is one of the most comprehensive sources of information about the U.S. population, providing crucial demographic, social, economic and housing statistics. The COVID-19 pandemic significantly disrupted the ability to reach people and limited their ability to participate in the 2020 ACS. Therefore, the Census Bureau will release experimental data instead of the standard 1-year data products.

The webinar will examine all 1-year experimental data products released including: 

  • Experimental data tables
  • Technical working paper: “Addressing Nonresponse Bias in the American Community Survey During the Pandemic Using Administrative Data”
  • 1-Year Public Use Microdata Sample (PUMS) Files with Experimental Weights
  • Blog: “An Overview of Addressing Nonresponse Bias in the American Community Survey During the Pandemic Using Administrative Data”

Date: Tuesday, Nov. 30, at 2 p.m. EST
