Examine ACS 2012 Demographic-Economic Profiles for Selected Areas ...
We will develop ACS 2012 "richer demographic-economic" profiles for all school districts, metros, congressional districts, counties, cities/places and selected other types of areas similar to those that may be accessed below based on ACS 2010 5-year estimates. Projections to 2018 are optionally available. The ACS 2012 1-year profiles will be available in September 2013; ACS 2012 5-year profiles will be available in December 2013; School districts reflect 2011-12 boundaries, congressional districts the 113th Congress, other areas reflect boundaries as of January 2013.

These data tell us about area characteristics including educational attainment, enrollment by type of educational institution/level, workforce and employment, age and gender, place of birth, citizenship status, ancestry, foreign born population, language spoken at home, income and poverty, race/ethnicity, household composition and family structure, housing value and rent, mobility, vehicles, commuting, housing stock and attributes, among others.
