U.S. Population Characteristics in 2008

The American Community Survey(ACS) for 2008 has just been released by the Census Bureau. It provides a wealth of information for municipalities in excess of 65,000. You can find out demographic and socioeconomic statistics on a national level, on a state level, or on a city level. For New Jersey, this means you can find out updated estimated statistics on such places as Camden, Elizabeth, Jersey City, and Newark. Remember, these are not the official figures; those are only tabulated from the decennial census. But the ACS does give us a snapshot of where we are at the moment. This press release details some of the highlights from this survey.
