Note "The American Community Survey ... will replace the decennial census long form in 2010 and collect long-form-type information annually rather than only once every 10 years. ... The new ACS estimates combine three years of survey responses (2005-2007) to produce data for midsize communities ... the first update for communities with populations between 20,000 and 65,000 since the 2000 decennial census"-- p. ix, introduction

It uses the 2008-2010 ACS data to present a concise resource of information that tells a story about America - its population, levels of education, types of employment and housing, and patterns of migration and transportation
