Discontinuation of Narrative Profiles on American FactFinder

The Census Bureau discontinued the ACS Narrative Profiles (NP) on American FactFinder (AFF) in calendar year 2014, due to resource and technical constraints. The 2012 ACS 1-year and 3-year Narrative Profiles were the last releases of this product in AFF, and you can still access 2009, 2010, and 2011 ACS 1-year and 3-year Narrative Profiles in AFF.

Beginning in calendar year 2013 with the 2008-2012 ACS 5-year data release, 5-year Narrative Profiles are available as a Hot Report created by DataFerrett. The Narrative Profile is an automated report that produces short analytic text about a variety of topics. Fifteen different topic areas are covered in the Narrative Profile, for the geographic area you select. The Narrative Profile can then be used as a basic descriptive report about the social, economic, housing and demographic characteristics of that particular geographic area. You can access the Narrative Profiles on our website.
