Census Bureau: The Census Bureau's mission is to serve as the leading source of quality data about the nation's people and economy.
Census Bureau: Census of Population & Housing: The census tells us who we are and where we are going as a nation. The census helps our communities determine where to build everything from schools to supermarkets, and from homes to hospitals. It helps the government decide how to distribute funds and assistance to states and localities. It is also used to draw the lines of legislative districts and reapportion the seats each State holds in Congress.
Census Bureau: Reference Maps: Reference Maps include a variety of map types that show the boundaries and names of geographic areas for which the Census Bureau tabulates statistical data: Census Reference Maps; General Reference Maps; Congressional Districts; Metropolitan Areas; Public Use Microdata Areas; State Legislative Districts; Urban Areas; Partnership Program Maps; Economic Census.

Census Bureau: American Community Survey: Approximately 250,000 households are sampled each month across the nation. This sample is large enough to provide estimates for larger geographies - states, cities & counties with population of 65,000 or more - every year instead of evey 10 years. The ACS produces 3 distinct data sets each year: one-year data sets, three-year data sets and five-year data sets. This is because the ACS needs three years of surveys before it can compile statistically sound data for places with 20,000 to 65,000 people; and five years to gather enough responses for places with less than 20,000 residents.
>>Data for area with population < 20,000: ACS will have data for 2005-2009, 2006-2010, 2007-2011... periods, because it takes 5 years of surveys to gather enough responses for an adequate survey. It will not have data for any single year because not enough residents will receive an ACS in a year to yield useful data. It is important to understand that the resulting data is for a period of time, unlike data from the decennial census, which for a single point in time.
>>Data for area with population > 100,000: ACS data for 2007, 2007-2009 and 2005-2009. All places with over 20,000 people will have multiple ACS figures available. Each figure will be slightly different. All three are legitimate and useful, one just needs to understand the peculiarities of these moving averages.
