A new dataset, the 2012-2016 American Community Survey 5-Year Estimates, was released for public use by the U.S. Census Bureau on December 7, 2017. All Regional Dashboard items sourced from 5-Year ACS Estimates have been updated to reflect the recent data release. All table citations associated with these items have also been updated. Additional information on the U.S. Census Bureau’s American Community Survey can be found on the program’s official website. The RPC’s December 2016 blog post covered some tips and tricks for using this data source.
