Investigating Impact of the Recession: New 3-Year Comparison Profiles
The Census Bureau recently released new 3-year ACS comparison profiles where you can compare data for geographies of 20,000 or more population for the 2007-2009 recession period to the 2010-2012 "post recession" period. Click on the link below and then "New 3-Year Comparison Profiles" about mid-way down the page.
From the ACS website:
We are excited to announce the release of 3-year Social, Economic, and Housing Comparison Profiles. This first release of 3-year Comparison Profiles will give a side-by-side comparison of 2010-2012 ACS 3-year and 2007-2009 ACS 3-year estimates. The profiles also contain the statistical significance column that indicates if the estimates are statistically different (at the 90% confidence level). Access the 2010-2012 3-year Comparison Profiles on American FactFinder.

Something that might peak your interest is that by each of the measures I quickly looked at, the impact of the recession is felt in socio-economic conditions more strongly in the "post-recession" (2010-2012) period.

If I click on the above link, I just go to the basic AFF web page. Is there a specific data set that is called, for example, 3 year comparison profiles? I don't see it.
