2013 ACS 5-Year Estimates Released
The U.S. Census Bureau today released the 2011-2013 American Community Survey (ACS) 3-Year Estimates. This new demographic and social data for areas with populations of 20,000 or more provides the second non-overlapping ACS 3-Year Estimates and marks the first such set of separate period estimates to both be based on 2010 Census geographic areas.
Non-overlapping ACS period estimates allow smaller communities (those with fewer than 65,000 in population) to compare changes over time in their social, economic and housing characteristics. For instance, the data reveals a drop percent of the population in the city of Altoona with private health insurance between 2008-2010 and 2011-2013 (65.1 percent to 58.1 percent). Also, between these two 3-year time frames, the percent of families living below the federal poverty limit increased from 18.1 percent in 2008-2010 to 22.8 percent in 2011-2013 in the city of Wilkes-Barre.
In Pennsylvania, three-year estimates for the period 2011-2013 were released for all of the state’s congressional districts and metropolitan statistical areas, 61 of Pennsylvania’s 67 counties, the largest 20 cities, 208 school districts, 68 larger municipalities and other geographies.
The remaining geographies that do not have estimates yet released for 2013 (all counties, school districts, and municipalities below 20,000 population, and other geographies such as Census Tracts, Block Groups, and ZIP Code Tabulation Areas), will be released as five-year estimates in December. The first non-overlapping 5-Year ACS Estimates will be the 2005-2009 and the 2010-2014 edition, which will be available next year.
