Easy Access to the Most Recent Basic ACS Data

The Census Bureau has a great page for when you are simply looking for the most up-to-date information on your town, village, city or county. It's called the Census Reporter. By simply going to that link and typing in the name of the place or town you are looking for, you can bring up a nice smattering of the most recent ACS data available for your target area. This includes basic demographics, as well as data on income, family, housing, and social traits of the populace. For example, here is what is provided in the basic demographic data panel for the Town of New Hartford.


So the next time you need quick data on your town, city or village, just go to the Census Reporter and type in your community's name !
