The Census Bureau is offering a training session that will review different ways to access ACS data from the Census Bureau webpage. On December 9, the Census Bureau will release the first 3-year tabulation (2005 through 2007) from the American Community Survey. Data for areas reaching a population threshold of 20,000 will be released. Previous ACS results were limited to areas that reached a population threshold of 65,000, so many more counties and cities will be included in this release. The geographic units in which you are likely to be most interested in are: County, Place (cities and Census-designated Places), and PUMA. Approximately 60% of counties in the U.S. will be included.
