Expected release of 2013-2017 5-year data?


When may we expect the 2013-2017 5 year ACS data to be available? Thank you for all your fine work.


We’re currently hoping to have the 2013-2017 ACS summary data available on NHGIS by this Thursday (1/17). At worst, we’re confident it will be ready sometime next week.

(Our turnaround has been slower than usual this year because we’re implementing some restructuring of our data ingest process, which should help us release ACS data sooner in the future.)

Thanks for your patience, and I hope the delay isn’t causing too much trouble.
