GeoLytics News: American Community Survey 2010 (Long Form) Now Available from GeoLytics

American Community Survey 2010 (Long Form) Now Available from GeoLytics

GeoLytics has just released the new American Community Survey (ACS) for 2010. The ACS replaces the Census Long Form (SF3) data set and has many important demographics like Income, Employment, Commuting, Ancestry, Housing Value, Poverty etc. The ACS is comprised of 3 data sets -- the 1-year, 3-year and 5-year estimates. There are over 1,000 tables in the 5-year estimates and over 1500 tables in the 1-year estimates. For a complete list of variables, please go to our website at http://www.geolytics.com/USCensus,AmericanCommunitySurvey,Data,Variables,Products.asp

 The ACS is not part of the regular Census 2010 because it is an agglomeration of five years of data surveying. It can be used with the 2010 Summary File 1 or as a stand alone product. The boundaries will all align since the ACS 2010 is in the 2010 census boundaries. However, the total populations, race, etc numbers may differ because of the different methodologies that the US Census Bureau used in collecting the data sets.

 If you want this sort of data (income, employment, etc) still in the 2000 boundaries we also have the 2009 ACS which would then meet your needs. The ACS has all of the regular features that you expect in a GeoLytics product -- exporting data as a .csv or .dbf file; running maps and exporting them as shapefiles, having access to all of the variables for all of the geographies.
