I've been looking for the ACS 2019 5-year data on https://www2.census.gov/ but I'm not able to find it. Does anyone know where the full data release is located?
Thanks so much for your help.
It seems everybody has a different preferred source! I'd summarize this way:
Look at usa.ipums.org instead.
The census bureau says that all ACS files are available on https://www2.census.gov/, so it must be there. Did they say this in error?
Sorry misunderstood. I usually use the API and rarely use the summary files.
You will see the table name B01001 AGE BY SEX
under that you will see "2021 ACS 1-year estimates Detailed Tables"
to the right of this is a little downward pointing arrow - click on it
use the pull down menu to select 2019 ACS 5-year Estimates Detailed Tables
Thanks Dave, this is a good approach if you want one table of data for one location, but I'm not sure how this would work if you wanted to download all tables for all geographies for the USA.
Glenn, that's what I was looking for, thank you.
Thanks Jonathan, that second link is great, and thanks for the other links as well.
Thanks so much for the help everyone!
Does anyone else find it confusing that ACS data is in three locations on https://www2.census.gov/ ?
(1) There are several ACS datasets listed in the root directory (e.g., acs2013_5yr)
(2) then we have this directory with who knows what: https://www2.census.gov/acs/
(3) and we also have: https://www2.census.gov/programs-surveys/acs/
This makes it very confusing to find files and causes users to go to the IPUMS website to get files. It feels like it needs to be cleaned up and reorganized.
