Population

The American Community Survey (ACS) is an ongoing statistical survey by the U.S. Census Bureau. It regularly gathers information previously contained only in the long form of the decennial census, such as ancestry, educational attainment, income, language proficiency, migration, disability, employment, and housing characteristics.

These data are used by many public-sector, private-sector, and not-for-profit stakeholders to allocate funding, track shifting demographics, plan for emergencies, and learn about local communities. Sent to approximately 295,000 addresses monthly (or 3.5 million per year), it is the most extensive survey after the decennial census that the Census Bureau administers.

The US Census Bureau American QuickFacts provides statistics for all states and counties, and for cities and towns with a population of 5,000 or more.

What is the Margin of Error (MOE)? Definition: An MOE is a measure of the possible variation of the estimate around the population value. At a given confidence level, the estimate and the actual population value will differ by no more than the value of the MOE. A 90% confidence level is the Census Bureau Standard.

Data are based on a sample and are subject to sampling variability. The degree of uncertainty for an estimate arising from sampling variability is represented through the use of a margin of error.
