ACS 2021 Availability


I was trying to look through the blog, but couldn’t find an answer. When generally do ACS yearly samples release? I.e., I don’t know if there’s an expected timeframe for the 2021 data.

Thank you!


ACS 1-year microdata samples are usually released in October or November of the following year. You can check the ACS release schedule for more details, but it has not been announced yet for 2021 data. The ACS microdata are typically available through IPUMS USA about one month after their release by the Census Bureau.
