U.S. Census Bureau Releases 2011-2013 ACS 3-Year Estimates

The Census Bureau released the 2011-2013 American Community Survey (ACS) 3-Year Estimates, the most relied-upon source for up-to-date socioeconomic information every year. The release covers a three-year period from 2011 to 2013 and more than 40 topics, such as educational attainment, income, health insurance coverage, occupation, language spoken at home, nativity, ancestry and selected monthly homeowner costs.

The statistics are available in detailed tables for the nation, all 50 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, every congressional district, every metropolitan area, and all counties and places with populations of 20,000 or more. 

Visit the Census Bureau's American FactFinder to find statistics for your area.  For more information about the ACS Data Release Schedule, new ACS products, documentation, and a list of new tables for the 2011-2013 ACS 3-Year release, please visit the 2013 Data Release page.

2013 ACS 1-Year PUMS
The PUMS files are a set of anonymized untabulated records that data users can access to create custom tables that are not available through pretabulated (or summary) ACS data products. To read more about how the PUMS files are created, browse code lists, or look up subjects, please visit our PUMS Documentation Page. To access PUMS data, please visit American FactFinder, our FTP site, or DataFerrett.

The ACS provides reliable statistics that are indispensable to anyone who has 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, education, journalism, business and advocacy. If you have questions about this survey, please call our Customer Services Center on 1 (800) 923-8282.
