2012-2016 American Community Survey (ACS)
The United States Census Bureau released the 2012-2016 American Community Survey 5-year estimates. The American Community Survey is a reliable resource for social, economic, housing, and demographic information about the American people and workforce.
Used by officials, community leaders, businesses, and researchers, the ACS holds the distinction of being the only source of local statistics for most of the 40 subject areas addressed in the survey.
Due to the federal government shutdown, some websites may not be updated or may be temporarily offline.

Government Documents and Maps are part of the Research Support Unit of the Porter Henderson Library. The Collections are housed in a newly-remodeled corner of the Basement. The Library has been a selective depository for the Federal Depository Library Program since 1964 and a member of the Texas State Publications Depository Program since 1963. Budget cuts to the Texas State Library & Archives during the 2011 Legislative session, however, effectively ended the state publication program in July, 2011.
