CMAP uses Census and other data products to prepare forecasts of population and employment for use in regional planning and policy analysis. These forecasts are used primarily for evaluating regional planning and policy scenarios consistent with the recommendations found in GO TO 2040.
Regional Census Data
Important Census products include the 2010 decennial enumeration and the multi-year American Community Survey (ACS). All census data, including the ACS 2011-2015 5-year estimates, released on December 8, 2016, are available exclusively through American FactFinder2.
Also note that CMAP often conducts training on Census-related data and tools.
