Government Information: American Community Survey

A good starting point for finding resources in all levels of government: federal, state, city and international.

American Community Survey (ACS)

Through the ACS, we know more about jobs and occupations, educational attainment, veterans, whether
people own or rent their home, and other topics. Public officials, planners, and entrepreneurs use this information to assess the past and plan the future. When you respond to the ACS, you are doing your part to help your community plan hospitals and schools, support school lunch programs, improve emergency services, build bridges, and inform businesses looking to add jobs and expand to new markets, and more.- ACS website
