Updated Socioeconomic Statistics from the Census Bureau Are Released

As the press release states: “Up until now, small geographic areas had to rely on outdated 2000 Census figures for detailed information about the characteristics of their communities. Consisting of about 11.1 billion individual estimates and covering more than 670,000 distinct geographies, the 5-year ACS estimates give even the smallest communities more timely information on topics ranging from commute times to languages spoken at home to housing values.” You just need to access the “detailed tables” link to have access to HUNDREDS of updated figures on EVERY location in this country. Please remember that much of the data contained in these statistics are NOT part of the decennial census; those questions have been whittled down considerably over time, and the American Community Survey provides these more telling figures ranging from marital status to poverty status to travel time to work.
