Subject: American FactFinder (AFF) will be taken offline on March 31, 2020
Update from American Community Survey Data Users Group
I'm forwarding an important update on American Factfinder from the American Community
American FactFinder (AFF) will be taken offline on March 31, 2020. Most data previously
released on American FactFinder are now being released on the U.S. Census Bureau's new
dissemination platform, data.census.gov
. For more information about the transition from
American FactFinder to data.census.gov

Frequently asked questions.
Availability of Historical ACS Data:
As ACS transitions data from American FactFinder (AFF) into data.census.gov
, we employ
processes to ensure completeness and accuracy. This is an ongoing process and as we
progress, additional historical data will be available in the API or FTP sites.
There are some historical files that are not compatible with the new platform. The
incompatible files are all of the Subject Tables and Comparison Profiles prior to 2010, as
well as the 2005 and 2006 Selected Population Profiles. We want to ensure we meet the
needs of our data users and are looking into various options to provide these historical
files. If these particular products are critical for your work, we encourage you to
download them from AFF before it's taken offline. Thank you for your continued support
as we migrate over to data.census.gov
. If you have additional questions about historical
files, please contact acso.users.support(a)census.gov.
