Notes:  The American Community Survey (ACS) is based on an annual sample of US households and therefore is subject to error. This application uses 5-year average data (2011-2015) to increase sample size and reduce error. The margin of error provided is based on a 90% confidence level; that is, there is a 90% probability that the actual value falls within the range provided by subtracting and then adding the margin of error to the estimate. See American Community Survey: Multiyear Accuracy of the Data "-" indicates that a value is not statistically significant (margin of error is greater than estimate). "No statistically significant values found" indicates that few or no valid results are available in the selected geographic area.
