Tables from the American Community Survey (ACS) that provide summaries of various demographic, social, economic, and housing characteristics for the U.S., regions, divisions, states, counties, county subdivisions, places, metropolitan areas, American Indian and Alaska Native areas, Hawaiian home lands and congressional districts. These profiles are similar in content to the demographic profiles from the decennial censuses.
Note: The ACS data profile for demographic characteristics and housing units should be used if official estimates from the Population Estimates Program are not available. The DP-1: General Demographic Characteristics table from the Population Estimates program will provide the official intercensal population estimates.
In the American FactFinder, these profiles have a table identifier (Table ID) beginning with “DP”.
