INTRODUCTION:
The American Community Survey (ACS) is a nationwide survey designed to provide communities a fresh look at
how they are changing. It is a critical element in the Census Bureau's reengineered 2010 census.

The decennial census has two parts: 1) the short form, which counts the population; and 2) the long form, which
obtains demographic, housing, social, and economic information from a 1-in-6 sample of households. Information
from the long form is used for the administration of federal programs and the distribution of billions of federal
dollars.

Full implementation of the American Community Survey is planned in every county of the United States, pending
Congressional funding. The survey would include three million households. Data are collected by mail and
Census Bureau staff follow up with those who do not respond.

The American Community Survey will provide estimates of demographic, housing, social, and economic
characteristics every year for all states, as well as for all cities, counties, metropolitan areas, and population
groups of 65,000 people or more. For smaller areas, it will take three to five years to accumulate sufficient sample
to produce data for areas as small as census tracts. For example, areas of 20,000 to 65,000 can use data averaged
over three years. For rural areas and city neighborhoods or population groups of less than 20,000 people, it will
take five years to accumulate a sample that is similar to that of the decennial census. These averages can be
updated every year. Eventually, we will be able to measure changes over time for small areas and population
groups.

USE:
Since the census is conducted only once every 10 years, long-form information becomes out of date. Planners
and other data users are reluctant to rely on it for decisions that are expensive and affect the quality of life of
thousands of people. The American Community Survey is a way to provide the data communities need every year
instead of once in ten years. It is an on-going survey that the Census Bureau believes will replace the long form in
the 2010 Census.

The data collected during the 2002 ACS, released in September, 2003, feature the core information used to develop
tabular and narrative profiles of demographic, social, economic, and housing characteristics. The ACS, together
with the 2001 Supplementary Survey, and the Census 2000 Supplementary Survey, provide some early insight
into changes that have ocurred in the country, most metropolitan areas, and in major cities since Census 2000.
The data measure population edonomic, social and housing characteristics such as educational attainment,
veteran status, housing value and commuting patterns.

NOTES
The population estimates in this profile are limited to the household population and exclude the
population living in institutions, college dormitories, and other group quarters.
In the narrative profile below, if one sample estimate is larger than another, it does not necessarily mean
that the same holds for their true values for the entire population. These estimates are derived from a
sample of housing units and measure the true values with a degree of uncertainty. In the tabular profiles
this uncertainty is represented by the 90 percent confidence interval given for each estimate.

Caution should be used when comparing data by race for years before 1999 with those for 2000 due to
the Census Bureau's implementation of the October 1997 revised standards for data on race and ethnicity.
For the 2000 data, respondents may report one or more races and there are seven (American Indian and
Alaska Native, Asian, Black or African American, Native Hawaiian and Other Pacific Islander, White,
Some other race, and Two or more races) instead of five racial tabulation categories. The Two or more
races category includes all respondents who reported more than one race.

In addition, caution should be used when comparing population numbers by age, race, and sex for 2000
with all earlier years. The numbers for 2000 have been weighted to be generally consistent with Census
2000 counts.

Detail may not add to totals due to rounding. Percentages are based on unrounded numbers.

NOTES
The population estimates in this profile are limited to the household population and exclude the population
living in institutions, college dormitories, and other group quarters.

In the narrative profile below, if one sample estimate is larger than another, it does not necessarily mean that
the same holds for their true values for the entire population. These estimates are derived from a sample of
housing units and measure the true values with a degree of uncertainty. In the tabular profiles this uncertainty
is represented by the 90 percent confidence interval given for each estimate.

Caution should be used when comparing data by race for years before 1999 with those for 2000 due to the
Census Bureau's implementation of the October 1997 revised standards for data on race and ethnicity. For the
2000 data, respondents may report one or more races and there are seven (American Indian and Alaska Native,
Asian, Black or African American, Native Hawaiian and Other Pacific Islander, White, Some other race, and
Two or more races) instead of five racial tabulation categories. The Two or more races category includes all
respondents who reported more than one race. See the methodology section for more details regarding these
changes.

In addition, caution should be used when comparing population numbers by age, race, and sex for 2000 with
all earlier years. The numbers for 2000 have been weighted to be generally consistent with Census 2000
counts.

Detail may not add to totals due to rounding. Percentages are based on unrounded numbers.

NOTES
The population estimates in this profile are limited to the household population and exclude the population
living in institutions, college dormitories, and other group quarters.

In the narrative profile below, if one sample estimate is larger than another, it does not necessarily mean that
the same holds for their true values for the entire population. These estimates are derived from a sample of
housing units and measure the true values with a degree of uncertainty. In the tabular profiles this uncertainty
is represented by the 90 percent confidence interval given for each estimate.

Caution should be used when comparing data by race for years before 1999 with those for 2000 due to the
Census Bureau's implementation of the October 1997 revised standards for data on race and ethnicity. For the
2000 data, respondents may report one or more races and there are seven (American Indian and Alaska Native,
Asian, Black or African American, Native Hawaiian and Other Pacific Islander, White, Some other race, and
Two or more races) instead of five racial tabulation categories. The Two or more races category includes all
respondents who reported more than one race. See the methodology section for more details regarding these
changes.

In addition, caution should be used when comparing population numbers by age, race, and sex for 2000 with
all earlier years. The numbers for 2000 have been weighted to be generally consistent with Census 2000
counts.

Detail may not add to totals due to rounding. Percentages are based on unrounded numbers.

NOTES
The population estimates in this profile are limited to the household population and exclude the population
living in institutions, college dormitories, and other group quarters.

In the narrative profile below, if one sample estimate is larger than another, it does not necessarily mean that
the same holds for their true values for the entire population. These estimates are derived from a sample of
housing units and measure the true values with a degree of uncertainty. In the tabular profiles this uncertainty
is represented by the 90 percent confidence interval given for each estimate.

Caution should be used when comparing data by race for years before 1999 with those for 2000 due to the
Census Bureau's implementation of the October 1997 revised standards for data on race and ethnicity. For the
2000 data, respondents may report one or more races and there are seven (American Indian and Alaska Native,
Asian, Black or African American, Native Hawaiian and Other Pacific Islander, White, Some other race, and
Two or more races) instead of five racial tabulation categories. The Two or more races category includes all
respondents who reported more than one race. See the methodology section for more details regarding these
changes.

In addition, caution should be used when comparing population numbers by age, race, and sex for 2000 with
all earlier years. The numbers for 2000 have been weighted to be generally consistent with Census 2000
counts.

Detail may not add to totals due to rounding. Percentages are based on unrounded numbers.

NOTES
The population estimates in this profile are limited to the household population and exclude the population
living in institutions, college dormitories, and other group quarters.

In the narrative profile below, if one sample estimate is larger than another, it does not necessarily mean that
the same holds for their true values for the entire population. These estimates are derived from a sample of
housing units and measure the true values with a degree of uncertainty. In the tabular profiles this uncertainty
is represented by the 90 percent confidence interval given for each estimate.

Caution should be used when comparing data by race for years before 1999 with those for 2000 due to the
Census Bureau's implementation of the October 1997 revised standards for data on race and ethnicity. For the
2000 data, respondents may report one or more races and there are seven (American Indian and Alaska Native,
Asian, Black or African American, Native Hawaiian and Other Pacific Islander, White, Some other race, and
Two or more races) instead of five racial tabulation categories. The Two or more races category includes all
respondents who reported more than one race. See the methodology section for more details regarding these
changes.

In addition, caution should be used when comparing population numbers by age, race, and sex for 2000 with
all earlier years. The numbers for 2000 have been weighted to be generally consistent with Census 2000
counts.

Detail may not add to totals due to rounding. Percentages are based on unrounded numbers.
