2012 American Community Survey 5-Year Estimates
Items 1-3 below are data based on the 2012 American Community Survey 5-year estimates. More about these data at http://proximityone.com/acs0812.htm. The 2012 5-year estimates are independent of Census 2010 (which included no "richer demographics") and based on the ACS survey data collected 2008 through 2012 (hence centric to 2010). All of these data are annually updated. The ACS 2013 5-year estimates, centric to 2011, will be released in December 2014. Using these annual data, we develop annual time-series data used in models to develop more current estimates, projections and examine demographic-economic trends.
