Population and housing counts and social characteristics are based on data from two U.S. Census Bureau data resources:
  • The American Community Survey (ACS) is intended to measure the changing social and economic characteristics of the population. The ACS is a nationwide, continuous survey designed to provide communities with reliable and timely demographic, housing, social and economic data each year. Because ACS data are collected continuously, they are not always comparable with data collected from the decennial census. ACS data is reported as 1, 3, or 5-year estimates depending on the census geography. One-year estimates are available at the municipal level, but 5-year estimates must be used for census tracts. Because only a few surveys may be collected in any given year for a particular census tract, there is sometimes a wide margin of error for a particular data set that must be considered when analyzing data.
