South Florida Census 2010

The American Community Survey (ACS) is a continuous survey by the Census Bureau with an annual sample of approximately 3 million households in the United States, spread across the 12 months of the year. It is the Census Bureau’s primary tool for collecting demographic and socio-economic data needed for critical government functions at the local level. It complements the decennial census, which collects data for every household in the country, and is designed primarily to count the population and fulfill the constitutional requirement for congressional apportionment. Full implementation of the ACS began in every county of the United States in 2005, and replaced the census “long form” for the first time in the 2010 Census. Broward County was one of 31 pilot sites selected around the country to participate in the development of the methodology for the ACS, beginning in 1998.

The results of the ACS are generally published in the fall and winter, following the close of data collection for each calendar year. The Census Bureau provides detailed information about the methodology and products of the ACS at its website [www.census.gov/acs]. Most results can be obtained through the Census Bureau’s American FactFinder [http://factfinder.census.gov/faces/nav/jsf/pages/index.xhtml]. Four sets of results are released each year:

  • Over a thousand tables are released with 1-year period estimates (a cumulative sample for 12 months) for all census geographies that have a population of at least 65,000 residents.
  • Public Use Microdata Sample (PUMS) files are released for the 1-year period estimates with a sample of the actual responses to the survey.
  • Over a thousand tables are released with 5-year period estimates (a cumulative sample for 60 months) for all census geographies down to the census block group.
  • Public Use Microdata Sample (PUMS) files are released for the 5-year period estimates with a sample of the actual responses to the survey.

Individual tables created from the decennial censuses are best obtained from American FactFinder. However, following each of the two most recent decennial censuses, the Council also posted summary and detailed profiles for every county and municipality in South Florida:

  • 2000 Census demographic profiles (4 pages each)
  • 2000 Census socio-economic profiles (58 pages each)
  • 2010 Census demographic profiles (3 pages each)
  • 2010 Census socio-economic profiles (58 pages each)
