Processing the Census ACS data is one of the largest data projects we do every year. We process a lot of data in a little time, while adding new indicators. Here’s how we do it.
New 2012-2016 Census ACS data is up on PolicyMap with new indicators on occupations, pre-K and post-secondary enrollment, military healthcare, and more!
What is administrative data? Can it improve, complement, or replace survey data? These were some of the big questions discussed at the APDU 2017 conference.
PolicyMap has a small but important improvement: ACS estimates, which come in five-year ranges, now show up as five-year ranges in the legend on our maps.
Talk at this year’s ACS Data Users Conference ranged from margins of error to the survey’s mailing envelope. Here are the hot topics from the conference.
