American Community Survey (ACS) 5-Year Estimates for Coastal Geographies

Metadata Updated: March 15, 2024

The American Community Survey (ACS) is an ongoing statistical survey that samples a small percentage of the population every year. These data have been apportioned to 13 coastal geographies, and contain detailed demographic, social, economic, and housing characteristics. They represent 5-year estimates derived from the ACS Block Group summary files. Detailed information on the ACS data can be found at the Census Bureau's American Community Survey website and in their researcher's guide entitled, "A Compass for Understanding and Using American Community Survey Data". Detailed information on the geographies the data are available for can be found here: https://coast.noaa.gov/data/digitalcoast/pdf/qrt-american-community-description.pdf
