More ACS Data

The 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.

To help communities, state governments, and federal programs, we ask about:

  • Age
  • Sex
  • Race
  • Family and Relationships
  • Income and Benefits
  • Education
  • Veteran Status
  • Disabilities
  • Where you work and how you get there
  • where you live and how much you pay for some essentials.

Demographic Profiles

The American Community Survey creates demographic profiles, consisting of social, economic, and housing characteristics, for the County as a whole, and each minor subdivision or municipality. To make it easier for data users to navigate, we have compiled the profiles for each municipality in Ulster County in one central location.

Each link on the map below will take you to the 2005-2009 ACS Data Profile for the municipality you choose. Each link consists of 5 sub-links which include;

  • Profile of Selected Social Characteristics
  • Profile of Selected Economic Characteristics
  • Profile of Selected Housing Characteristics
  • Narrative - Text profile with graphs for easy analysis

Census Desiganated Place (CDP) Profiles

These profiles are identical in data structure to the Municipal Profiles, but are defined by the Census Bureau as: "The Census Bureau tabulates and presents data for two kinds of places– incorporated places and census designated places or CDPs. Incorporated places are recognized legally according to laws of their respective states, and generally have active, functioning governments providing a variety of services for their residents. CDPs on the other hand represent unincorporated communities that typically do not have a legally specified boundary."

As with the Municipal Profiles, we have compiled them for easy use for Ulster County in the table below (Note some CDP's cross municipal boundaries. In those cases, both municipalities are noted):
