New Statistics from the American Community Survey to Be Embargoed

Press Release Number CB18-169


The U.S. Census Bureau will offer an embargo period for subscribers to view statistics from the 2013-2017 American Community Survey five-year estimates, which features more than 40 social, economic, housing and demographic topics, including homeownership rates and costs, health insurance and educational attainment.

Embargo subscribers will have access to these statistics beginning Dec. 4 at 10 a.m. (EST).

The American Community Survey provides a wide range of important statistics about people and housing for every community in the nation. This survey is the only source of local estimates for most of the 40 topics it covers for communities across the nation. For example, it produces statistics for language, education, commuting, employment, mortgage status and rent, as well as income, poverty and health insurance.

The five-year estimates will be available for all 50 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, every congressional district, and all counties, places, census tracts, ZIP Code Tabulation Areas and block groups.


Tuesday, Dec. 4, at 10 a.m. EST to Thursday, Dec. 6, at 12:01 a.m. EST.
