Data Availability from the American Community Survey
The type of data available from the American Community Survey depends on the size of your community or county.
- For areas with populations of less than 65,000 persons, the ACS provides 5-year estimates only.
- For areas with populations of 65,000 persons or more, the ACS provides 1- and 5-year estimates.
The list of which counties get which estimates will change as populations increase or decrease.
