The American Community Survey (ACS) is an ongoing survey that generates estimates on social, economic, housing, and demographic topics. Data users can access these estimates down to our smallest level of geography, block groups, using American FactFinder or the ACS Summary File. This webinar will cover background information about the ACS, an explanation of the ACS Summary File, and a demonstration of accessing block group data using American FactFinder, the Summary File Retrieval Tool, DataFerrett and FTP site.
