We are pleased to announce the first release of documentation in support of the 2017 American Community Survey 1-year estimates scheduled for release on Thursday, September 13, 2018. This documentation offers ACS data users the opportunity to prepare for next week's data release.

New and updated information related to this release is available now on the 2017 Data Release page.

Highlights include links to the following:

  • The Summary File Documentation page includes the technical document, table shells, and sequence/table number lookup files.  New this year: the 1-year appendices include the topics and universe for each table number.
  • Table Shells display the layout of the tables without the estimates or margins of error filled in.
  • The Areas Published page lists the total number of geographic areas that receive 2076 ACS 1-year estimates. An excel file also details the specific geographies that have published data.
