This is a special tabulation of data providing data on the citizen voting age population and other data from the 2008_2012 5-year American Community Survey (ACS). The ACS is the replacement for the decennial census long form. This is the fourth release of this special tabulation of ACS data. The first used the 2005-2009 5-year ACS data, the second used the 2006-2010 5-year ACS data, and the third used the 2007-2011 5-year ACS data. Data from all four releases are available on the Census Bureau's Redistricting Office web site, https://www.census.gov/rdo
. The data in this tabulation were collected in the American Community Survey between 2009 and 2013.
The American Community Survey is an ongoing survey that provides data every year -- giving communities the current information they need to plan investments and services. Information from the survey generates data that help determine how more than $400 billion in federal and state funds are distributed each year. To help communities, state governments, and federal programs, we ask about a variety of topics, including age, race, ethnicity, and citizenship. For more information on the
