Reference: New From U.S. Census: 2008-2010 ACS 3-Year Estimates

The U.S. Census Bureau Reports:

We are pleased to announce the release of the 2008-2010 American Community Survey (ACS) 3-Year Estimates, the most  relied-upon source for up-to-date socioeconomic information every year. The release covers more than 40 topics,  such as educational attainment, income, health insurance coverage, occupation, language spoken at home, nativity,  ancestry and selected monthly homeowner costs. The estimates are available in detailed tables for the nation, all  50 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, every congressional district, every metropolitan area, and all
counties and places with populations of 20,000 or more.

Beginning in 2008, the ACS questionnaire included new questions about marital history, disability, health insurance, and service-connected disability-rating status and ratings for civilian veterans. The 2008-2010 ACS 3-Year Estimates will  be the first 3-year dataset to include this new content.

To learn more about these tables, and other data product  changes, please visit our 2010 Data Product Changes page.
