New data release from ACS

September 20, 2018

American Community Survey released its one-year estimates for 2017 on Sept. 13, with new statistics on income, poverty, educational attainment and a variety of other topics. ACS reports that many large metropolitan areas saw an increase in income and a decrease in poverty rates between 2016 and 2017. The estimates are based on eight and a half months of data collected from January 2017 through mid-September 2017 when the collection was suspended due to the impact of hurricanes Harvey, Irma and Maria. In upcoming months, the Census Bureau will release additional ACS data, including 2017 ACS supplemental tables and five-year statistics. SSTI will take a closer look at the data with that release and reveal findings in a future issue of the Digest.
