Demographic, Consumer, and Business Data

American Community Survey

Gain insight and find new opportunities in your area with population and housing data from the American Community Survey (ACS).

Esri's ACS data provides much of the information available previously through the decennial census. The ACS data will be updated and released more frequently. For ease of use, Esri developed a proprietary system of reliability symbols that identify the accuracy of the ACS estimates. ACS data categories offered by Esri include:

  • Population
    Such as total population, marital status, language, poverty
  • School and Work
    Such as school enrollment, educational attainment, travel time and means of transportation to work
  • Households
    Such as total households, poverty status, income, home value, rent, vehicles available, mortgage status
  • Housing
    Such as total housing units, number of units in structure, year built

The Esri Data Advantage

Esri provides the ACS data variables in a variety of standard census geographies as well as for ZIP codes and other user-defined areas. A margin of error (MOE) and a reliability symbol are also provided for each ACS estimate.
