The American Community Survey (ACS) is now the place to go for data on the social, economic, and housing characteristics of our counties and communities.

As with any new data source, those from the ACS

differ in many ways from what we are used to.

To help get a feel for the data, this page provides links to sample tables for some of the data products available from the American Community Survey.

 

 

For more information about the

American Community Survey,

Data Profiles provide compilations of commonly used data.  Tables include both estimates and commonly used percents. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Subject Tables provide data on a wide variety of topics.  The tables include both estimates and commonly used percents.  Which subject tables are available varies depending on data availability.

This Sample List of Subject Tables available was created using the

Old American FactFinder website.  While this type of list cannot be generated using the NEW American FactFinder website, it is still a useful way to see some of the types of subjects available in the Subject Tables

 

 

 

 

Geographic Comparison Tables provide data for more than one geography on a variety of topics.  If you want data for more than one place, such as all counties in Kentucky, these tables are one option.  Which tables are available varies depending on data availability.
