Taken from the Census Bureau Press Release........Don't forget to do
your significance tests when comparing to 2005 and 2000 and keep in mind
that the 2006 data contains group quarters.
The Census Bureau today released 2006 ACS social, economic, and housing
characteristics, demographic and housing estimates, and PUMS data. Data
are again available for the nation, the 50 states and the District of
Columbia, Puerto Rico, every congressional district, and all counties,
places, and metropolitan areas with populations of 65,000 or more.
Key topics included in this release consist of:
*Class of worker
*Journey to work
*Households and families
These data may be found at:
As noted in the 2006 ACS data release on Aug. 28, 2007, this year marks
the first time that ACS data products cover the total U.S. population,
including populations residing in group quarters (such as prisons,
college dormitories, military barracks, and nursing homes).
The Census Bureau's Web site now contains guidance on comparing 2006 ACS
data to 2005 ACS data, as well as comparing 2006 ACS data to Census 2000
data. This guidance may be found at:
The final release of 2006 ACS data will occur on Sept. 27, 2007 and
consist of selected population profiles/tables for about 200 selected
population groups by race, Hispanic origin, and ancestry. In addition,
this release will include group quarters profiles, the first such
release since the 1990 Census. Also released at that time will be
workplace geography tables.
