American Community Survey 5-Year Summary File

The American Community Survey (ACS) provides detailed demographic, social, economic, commuting and housing statistics based on continuous survey data collection. Data collected over the most recent 5 years are batched, summarized and published the following December. <br/><br/>These files contain summary data for Census Block Groups (CensusACSBlockGroup.xlsx), Tracts (CensusACSTract.xlsx), minor civil divisions (CensusACSMCD.xlsx), school districts (CensusACSSchoolDistrict.xlsx), and ZIP code tabulation areas (CensusACSZipCode.xlsx). No shapefiles are included, but these data files can be joined to associated shapefile datasets available elsewhere on this site. <br/><br/>Starting with the 2016-2020 data, tract and block group boundaries are those used in the 2020 Census. If you need the most recent ACS data for the tract and block group boundaries used in the 2010 Census, contact Matt Schroeder (information below).

dsPurpose The American Community Survey (ACS) provides detailed demographic, social, economic, commuting and housing statistics based on continuous survey data collection. Data collected over the most recent 5 years are batched, summarized and published the following December. Summary tables compiled with 5-year data have approximately 20,000 variables from 900 tabulations. The published Census statistics have been recompiled by Metropolitan Council, with custom field names, in order to accomplish definitional and categorical consistency between Census 1990, Census 2000, and ACS.
