American Community Survey Data


Overview

LSC obtains demographic information from the US Census Bureau’s American Community Survey (ACS). The tables have been requested from the Census Bureau to be disaggregated at the LSC Service Area and state levels by key demographic categories. These tables are available for download and can be browsed below. For more state-level data or for data by county, congressional district, or other geographic areas please visit American FactFinder.

The American Community Survey is a national survey that uses a series of monthly samples to produce annual population estimates for small areas. Tabulations are available for all areas based on 5-years of sample data (e.g., 2013-2017), and more current 1-year tabulations are available for areas with greater than 65,000 people. Refer to the US Census Bureau American Community Survey website for more information about the survey and methodology.

Legal Service Area estimates follow a rounding schematic implemented by the Census Bureau: 0 remains 0; 1-7 rounds to 4; 8 or greater rounds to the nearest multiple of 5 (i.e., 864 rounds to 865, 982 rounds to 980); and any number ending in 5 or 0 stays as is. As a result, adding subtotal estimates may not match the totals in the table. Estimates for state-level tabulations, which are publicly available from the Census Bureau, are not rounded.
