Subject: Resources for 2020 ACS Data Release
Update from American Community Survey Data Users Group
The Census Bureau announced yesterday that they will not be releasing their standard 2020
ACS 1-year data products in September as planned due to the impact of the pandemic on data
quality. Instead, they will be releasing a set of experimental estimates from the 1-year
data. They have created several resources to help data users prepare for this change:
* A press
includes a PDF version of yesterday's webinar, background materials explaining what
experimental data products are, and information about the Census Bureau’s statistical
quality standards. A recording of the webinar should be available by late Monday.
* A revised 2020 ACS release
includes the complete schedule with new planned release dates.
* The ACS Resource
flyer and 2020 ACS 1-Year Estimates: What You Need to
flyer provide more information.
