  • Collected using sound statistical methodologies Limitation are understood and conveyed ACS and MOE should be revealed in your proposals
  • Now let’s get into accessing the data. Geographic types Nation State County Place Census tract Block group Block Zip code/ZCTA Congressional district Other User Defined Areas There are a couple rules we want to follow before we actually get into using the American Factfinder which is our data access tool. We call the rules Data Access 101. Before jumping onto the site you want to know 2 things. First, know the geographic area or areas you want your data for. And second, you want to know the data that you want. The reason for this is that it will cut down on the potential of getting lost in the factfinder. Now the American FactFinder is a pretty user-friendly tool, but there is so much information in there that if you just go in there and play around with it you are bound to get lost and we want to limit the frustration.
  • 2010 Census is a short form only Census—limited demographic characteristics; ACS is now source for “long Form” data Decennial Census - Every 10 years from 1790 Long form data collected 1940-2000 SF1, SF2, SF3, SF4 Census Data released in two “flavors” – Aggregate data Microdata A third type of data product identifies geographic boundaries Aggregate data released in a variety of products, differing in content, geographic specificity and temporal coverage Microdata has flexibility of individual level information, but balances this by only gross geographic detail
  • The content collected by the American Community Survey can be grouped into four main types of characteristics – social, economic, housing, and demographic. Let’s take a closer look at the type of information each of these categories contain.
  • Is your county becoming younger or older? Does any group comprise the majority of residents there? How rapidly are different groups growing nationally and in each state and county? Are there states and counties that have more men than women?
  • Is your county becoming younger or older? Does any group comprise the majority of residents there? How rapidly are different groups growing nationally and in each state and county? Are there states and counties that have more men than women?
  •   – Select geographies to view on a reference map and add to your selections. Read Selecting Geographic Areas on a Map .   – Select boundaries and features to display on the map.   – Enter an address, place name, or lattitude and longitude to find a location on a map.   – Place point map markers of different colors and sizes as well as text on a reference map.

  • Identifies hot industries by selected criterion for workers in a local economy Reports top industries for your area, age group, or gender based on 8 quarterly workforce indicators Reports top industries for your area, by educational attainment based on 8 quarterly workforce indicators Reports top industries for your area, by race and ethnicity based on 8 quarterly workforce indicators Determine the top industries for your area and your local workers Focus in on a particular industry to see how it ranks among top industries Look at the characteristics of those who work in that industry
  • Industry Focus is a tool that quickly shows the top industries for your area or your specific age and gender. In addition, you can learn about the workforce in that industry with a single click. Eight measures are available to use for ranking the top 10, 15, or 50 industries. The screen allows you to input the number of industries you want to see. Definitions and formulas are given for each of the eight ranking factors, by clicking on the blue “I” for information icon. There are 8 different age breakouts, in addition to the aggregate – ages 14-99. You can select female, male or both. States are listed in alphabetical order and include those currently providing data to the partnership. This number continues to grow. Once you’ve identified your state, you can chose to view data statewide, or at the county, workforce investment area (WIA) or metro level. If you select WIAs, you get a link to see all available WIAs for the state. If you leave the last fields blank, those related to Sector and Industry, you will get a listing of the top industries for the area and for workers of the age and sex selected. If you enter a 2-digit NAICS sector and then a 3-digit NAICS industry within that sector, you will get a report that shows where that selected industry ranks among top industries.

All others are public coverage • The types of health insurance are not mutually exclusive; people may be covered by more than one at the same time • This was added to the ACS in 2008 11
    • 12. ACS Data ProductsACS Data Products Data Product Description Data Profiles Provide broad social, economic, housing, and demographic profiles. Narrative profiles Summarize the information in the data profiles using concise, nontechnical text. Comparison profile Compares over 5-year period selected enhancements. Selected population profiles Provide broad social, economic, and housing profiles for a large number of race, ethnic, ancestry, and country/region of birth groups. Detailed tables Provide access to the most detailed ACS data and cross tabulations of ACS variables. Subject tables Similar to data profiles but include more detailed ACS data, classified by subject. Ranking tables Provide state rankings of estimates across 86 key variables. Geographic comparison tables Compare geographic areas other than states (e.g., counties or congressional districts) for key variables. Quick table Predefined table with frequently requested information for a single geographic area.

For example, a table that has ten rows and ten geographies is equivalent to 100 total rows.
