Census Data

About Census

Every ten years the United States Census Bureau counts the total number of persons residing in the United States.  This is mandated in the United States Constitution in order for each state to provide adequate representation to the United States House of Representatives.  Census enumerations are also used by the federal and state governments to help allocate and distribute funds locally.  Additionally, the Census Bureau conducts many other types of surveys on an ongoing basis, such as the American Community Survey which is collected annually.  

Concord's GIS Division routinely provides various types of statistical data to the Census Bureau.  This data consist of maps, annexation boundaries, construction activity, and address/street list verifications.  As a result of the decennial census, the Census Bureau provides a multitude of publically accessible data that is very valuable to the City, and is also widely used by businesses and other organizations.  Data distributed from the Census Bureau is used for general planning purposes as well as for business and economic development initiatives.  It is important to remember that any individual or household data that citizens submit to the Census Bureau is held in complete confidence by the Census Bureau, and is not made public.  The Census Bureau releases statistical information that is aggregated up to large geographic areas.

American Community Survey (annual)

The Census Bureau's American Community Survey (ACS) 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.

The survey asks about:

age
gender
race
family relationships
income and benefits
health insurance
education
veteran status
disabilities
where people work and how they get to work
where people live and how much they pay for certain living essentials

All this detail is combined into statistical estimates that are used to help decide everything from school lunch programs to new hospitals.  To learn more about the American Community Survey, click here.
