Has anyone had success using this web based tool from Census? We are using IE v 8 with popup-blocker turned off . Still the application is not loading. Here’s the mail-out from Census:


The U.S Census Bureau announces the release of a new tool for accessing the 2005-2009 ACS 5-Year Summary File. The Census Bureau’s DataFerrett web application now houses the summary file and provides additional methods for users to define and extract a subset of the estimates. The DataFerrett interface is easy to use and packages the data in six different file formats, including SAS, SPSS, and Stata.


For more information about the 2005-2009 ACS 5-Year Summary Files, please visit the Summary File Data and Documentation page on the ACS web site.
