U.S. Census Bureau Announces Release of 4 ACS Products

We are pleased to announce the release of four important American Community Survey (ACS) data products:

  • 2007-2011 ACS 5-year Public Use Microdata Sample (PUMS)  β€” The PUMS files are a set of anonymized untabulated records that data users can access to create custom tables that are not available through pretabulated (or summary) ACS data products. To read more about how the PUMS files are created, browse code lists, or look up subjects, please visit our PUMS Documentation Page. To access PUMS data, please visit American FactFinder, our FTP site, or DataFerrett.
  • 2011 ACS estimates for Congressional Districts of the 113th Congress β€”The Census Bureau's Easy Stats interactive tool now includes 2011 ACS estimates for Congressional Districts of the 113th Congress.
  • 2011, 2009-2011, and 2007-2011 Puerto Rico Community Survey (PRCS) estimates in Spanish β€”  This release will display all three 2011 PRCS datasets in Spanish. (English estimates were released in 2012.) To access these datasets please visit American FactFinder.
  • 2007-2011 ACS Citizen Voting-Age Population β€” This tabulation shows estimates of the citizen voting age population by race for small areas of geography. This is the third year in a row that the ACS has produced estimates of this population for even the smallest geographic areas. For more information, and to access previous versions of the files, please visit our Redistricting Data Web site.

 The ACS provides reliable statistics that are indispensable to anyone who has to make informed decisions about the future. These statistics are required by all levels of government to manage or evaluate a wide range of programs, but are also useful for research, education, journalism, business and advocacy. If you have questions about this survey, please call our Customer Services Center on 1 (800) 923-8282.


Thank you,
