US ACS 5-Year Estimates

This node retrieves American Community Survey 5-Year Data (2009-2020). 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. The ACS covers a broad range of topics about social, economic, demographic, and housing characteristics of the U.S. population. The 5-year estimates from the ACS are period estimates that represent data collected over a period. The primary advantage of using multiyear estimates is the increased statistical reliability of the data for less populated areas and small population subgroups. The 5-year estimates are available for all geographies down to the block group level.

The node is based on the data from US Census and FIPS code and uses the following related information and functions:
