Includes over 150 demographic and economic variables for all states and all counties.

Data from the American Community Survey

The American Community Survey (ACS) provides critical information for all communities across the United States every year. The American Community Survey's Data Profiles provide data about social, economic, housing, and demographic characteristics for multiple geographic areas. Some of these geographic areas include states, counties, cities/towns, and zip code tabulation areas. You can also explore data all the way down to the census tract level, which are small areas of about 1,200 to 8,000 people. Tract level data can be accessed from data.census.gov one state at a time.
