American Community Survey
The American Community Survey (ACS) is possibly the best source for up-to-date statistics on U.S. and local populations, workers, and households. Monthly surveys replicate much of the information found via the traditional decennial census, allowing for yearly updates. MuniNet Guide uses the ACS to provide you with population, household income, and other demographic information on every city, county, and state in the country on our Demographics pages, an example of which can be found here.
