The U.S. Census Bureau released the 2010-2014 five-year American Community Survey (ACS) estimates on December 3. The ACS is an annual nationwide survey of approximately 3.5 million households that provides information on the social, demographic, housing, and economic characteristics of the U.S population. The ACS five-year estimates are available down to the census tract level.
The Census Bureau maintains a website that provides narrative profiles derived from the ACS 5-year estimates for selected geographic areas. The profiles cover 15 different topic areas, including income and housing cost burdens. The data are presented in text and graphs.
