The American Community Survey provides a wide range of important statistics about people and housing for every community in the nation. This survey is the only source of local estimates for most of the more than 40 topics it covers for communities across the nation. It includes statistics for language, education, commuting, employment, mortgage status and rent, as well as income, poverty and health insurance. The one-year statistics will be available for all 50 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, every congressional district and all counties and places with populations of 65,000 or more.
