The American Community Survey (ACS) is an ongoing, nationwide, monthly survey covering approximately three-million households each year and is now the source for all of the socioeconomic data that was formerly obtained from the decennial census. ACS data is available for three types of releases depending on population size: annually, three-year periods and five-year periods.
Annual ACS data are available for all geographies (e.g., U.S., states, counties, municipalities, places) with a population of 65,000 or more.
Three-year period ACS estimates are available for all geographies with a population of 20,000 or more.
Five-year period ACS estimates are available for all geographies down to census tracts and block groups.

Note: The Census Bureau has discontinued the three-year ACS data. The last three-year data release was for the 2011-2013 period. There will be no more three-year data releases.
