Census Bureau to Host Webinar and Embargo on New Data for Selected Population Groups and American Indian and Alaska Natives

Press Release Number CB23-86

The U.S. Census Bureau is holding a webinar before the release of two new embargoed data products: the Selected Population Tables and American Indian and Alaska Native Tables from the 2017-2021 American Community Survey (ACS) 5-year data. The webinar is scheduled for June 8, and the embargo is to begin June 13 with public release June 15.

The webinar will show participants how to access data in data.census.gov for American Indian and Alaska Native tribes and hundreds of detailed race, Hispanic origin, tribal and ancestry populations at multiple levels of geography including census tracts. These tables provide an in-depth look at populations beyond those covered in the one- and five-year ACS products. The Census Bureau has typically released these tables every five years since the inaugural 2006-2010 data tables.

Embargo subscribers will have access to these statistics beginning Tuesday, June 13 at 10 a.m. ET. The statistics will be available for public release Thursday, June 15 by 10 a.m. ET. Wire and distribution services are prohibited from distributing embargoed news stories and data files before the public release date and time. For more information, view the Census Bureau’s embargo policy.
