DC KIDS COUNT Data Tool 2.0 updated with newly released 5-year American Community Survey estimates for 2009-2013
On December 4, 2014 the US Census Bureau released new 5-year American Community Survey estimates for 2009-2013.
Five years of data collected between 2009 and 2013 provide statistics on more than 40 economic, housing and well-being indicators, including commuting, educational attainment and home value. As the nation’s largest ongoing household survey, the American Community Survey produces statistics at all levels of geography, down to the block group level.
The American FactFinder provides access to these data about the United States, District of Columbia, Puerto Rico and the Island Areas. The data in American FactFinder catalog previous censuses and surveys. This is the first release of American Community Survey block group estimates in the American FactFinder.
We work daily to maintain, and expand the DC KIDS COUNT Data Tool 2.0, which has emerged as the “go to” source of information for public officials, community organizations, parents and other stakeholders making key decisions that impact children and their families.
We will be releasing in-depth analysis in the coming weeks on the new trends we are seeing for children and their families. So stay tuned!
This update would NOT be possible without the partnership of DATAKIND DC, and our volunteers Josh De La Rosa, Max Richman, Aaron Schumacher and Josh Tokle. Without their support and guidance, this work would not be possible.
