What: The U.S. Census Bureau will hold a webinar on Nov. 28, 2017, in advance of the Dec. 7 release of the 2012-2016 American Community Survey five-year estimates. Members of the media will have embargo access to the information beginning Dec. 5.
The webinar will show participants how to access the data and compare geographies and statistics over time. Embargo subscribers will have access to these statistics beginning Dec. 5 at noon (EST).
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 40 topics it covers for communities across the nation. For example, it produces statistics for language, education, commuting, employment, mortgage status and rent, as well as income, poverty and health insurance.
The five-year estimates will be available for all 50 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, every congressional district, and all counties, places, census tracts, ZIP Code Tabulation Areas and block groups.
When: Tuesday, Nov. 28, 2017, at 2 p.m. (EST)
Who: Justin Keller, American Community Survey Office, Outreach and Education Branch, U.S. Census Bureau
Kristina Barrett, Public Information Office, Media Relations Branch, U.S. Census Bureau
Access: The webinar will consist of a simultaneous audio conference and online presentation. News media will have the opportunity to ask questions following the presentation.
