ACS State Social

Overview

The American Community Survey (ACS) is an ongoing survey that provides data every year -- giving communities the current information they need to plan investments and services. This dataset covers state-level ACS data pertaining to social characteristics of the U.S. population.

These data have been collected over the 5-year period 2014-2019. The primary advantage of using multi-year estimates is the increased statistical reliability of the data for less populated areas and small population subgroups.
