Data 101 Tutorials on the American Community Survey

What Is the American Community Survey?

Assessing the Reliability of ACS Estimates

PRB developed a video tutorial series to introduce data users to the American Community Survey (ACS) and provide key information about how to access and use ACS data.

The U.S. Census Bureau’s ACS provides detailed social, economic, housing, and demographic statistics for the United States and its communities every year. Data analysts, government officials, businesses, and many others use these statistics for local planning and policy development, and to track the population’s well-being.

Through these tutorials, you’ll also learn where to find additional resources available through the U.S. Census Bureau.

These tutorials were funded by the Annie E. Casey Foundation. We thank them for their support. The material presented in these videos is by PRB alone and does not necessarily reflect the opinions of the Foundation.
