Data Collection Error in Rio Arriba County, NM

After the release of the 2017 ACS data products, the Census Bureau identified an error in the data for Rio Arriba County, NM, which impacted 2017 ACS 1-year Supplemental Estimates and 2013-2017 ACS 5-year estimates in Rio Arriba County.  The error occurred during personal interview data collection.  The following topics were affected:  income and earnings, kitchen and plumbing facilities (vacant units only), labor force and employment, migration, and poverty.  The 2017 ACS 1-year Supplemental Estimates and 2013-2017 ACS 5-year estimates for these topics in the affected geographies should not be compared with other ACS estimates.  The 2013-2017 ACS 5-year estimates for these topics will be suppressed in future Comparison Profiles. 

This error for Rio Arriba County, NM had no notable impacts on the published 2017 ACS 1-year estimates or 2013-2017 ACS 5-year estimates at the national, regional, or state level.

The same data collection error occurred in 2018.  As a result, the 2018 ACS 1-year Supplemental Estimates and 2014-2018 ACS 5-year estimates have been suppressed for the topics listed above.  By extension, tabulations that use these topics to determine a given table universe were also suppressed.  The 2014-2018 ACS 5-year estimates for these topics will be suppressed in future Comparison Profiles.  It may take several years in the ACS 5-year files until the estimates are available for the affected geographies.
