American Fact Finder vs American Community Survey

  • State --> County --> Census Tract --> Block Group --> Block

  • American Community Survey - most detailed level of data; ACS 5-year data goes down to census block group level. Includes economic data.
  • American Fact Finder  Does not go down to block level for some categories. Also does not have economic data for Census 2010
  • Link to Census video  (below)
