GEOGRAPHY - Data reflect place of residence.
DATE - July 1 of reference year for intercensal estimates and April 1 for decennial census numbers. The ACS data reflect a 5-year pooled estimate. That is, the estimate is the result of data being continuously collected nearly every day for five years.
LIMITATIONS - With regard to the ACS data, characteristics for geographic areas experiencing dynamic change due to things such as an environmental catastrophe (e.g., flood) or a plant closing will be mitigated since these estimates cover five calendar years of data. Caution is needed when using the multiyear estimates for estimating year-to-year change in a particular characteristic. This is because four of the five years in the 5-year estimate overlap with the next year’s estimate. Ideally, trend analysis with multiyear estimates should be done using estimates from non-overlapping periods (i.e., 2006-2010 and 2011-2015).
NOTE - Between each decennial census, annual intercensal estimates are revised each year as new administrative records become available.
 Data is updated to the most current vintage year estimates back to the most recent census.
