2014 ACS Release Schedule Announced

 

The 2014 ACS 1-year estimates are planned for release on Thursday, September 17, 2015.

The American Community Survey (ACS) produces statistics on numerous social, economic and housing characteristics, including language, education, the commute to work, employment, mortgage status and rent, as well as income, poverty and health insurance. The 2014 ACS 1-year estimates will be available for the nation, all states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, every congressional district, every metropolitan area, and all counties and places with populations of 65,000 or more. Embargo subscribers will have access to these statistics beginning noon EST Wednesday, September 16 for release at 12:01a.m. Thursday, September 17. Please note that this is a 12-hour embargo.

The 2010-2014 ACS 5-year estimates are planned for release on Thursday, December 10, 2015.

The 2010-2014 ACS 5-year estimates will be available for all geographic areas including census tracts, ZIP Code Tabulation Areas (ZCTAs), and block groups. For the first time, users will be able to compare two non-overlapping 5-year datasets (2005-2009 and 2010-2014). Embargo subscribers will have access to these statistics beginning Tuesday, December 8.

Please note that the ACS 3-year estimates have been discontinued. Every community in the nation will continue to receive a detailed statistical portrait of its social, economic, housing and demographic characteristics through 1-year and 5-year ACS products.

The ACS provides reliable statistics that are used to make informed decisions about the future. These statistics are required by all levels of government to manage or evaluate a wide range of programs, but are also useful for research, business, education, journalism, and advocacy. If you have questions about this survey, please call our Customer Services Center on 1 (800) 923-8282.
