The U.S. Census Bureau is the leading source of statistical information about the nation’s people. Our population statistics come from decennial censuses, which count the entire U.S. population every ten years, along with several other surveys.
The ACS provides granular & flexible data on local population & household census info. It is independent of the 10 year cycle of the nationwide census. The ACS undergoes constant change & refinements, every year.
