American Community Survey (ACS) – The American Community Survey (ACS) is a nationwide survey designed to provide longitudinal data to communities. Data are collected from questionnaires mailed to a sample of addresses to obtain information about households — that is, about each person and the housing unit itself. ACS produces demographic, social, housing and economic estimates in the form of 1-year, 3-year and 5-year estimates based on population thresholds.

USDA ERS County Typology Codes – USDA’s Economic Research Service (ERS) developed a set of county-level typology codes intended to captures a range of economic and social characteristics. The 2015 County Typology Codes classify all U.S. counties according to six mutually exclusive categories of economic dependence including: farming, mining, manufacturing, Federal/State government, recreation, and nonspecialized counties.

USDA ERS Rural-Urban Continuum Codes – USDA’s Economic Research Service (ERS) developed a classification scheme that distinguishes metropolitan counties by the population size of their metro area, and nonmetropolitan counties by degree of urbanization and adjacency to a metro area. Metor and nonmetro categories have been subdivided into three metro (i.e., counties in metro areas of 1 million population or more; 250,000 to 1 million population; and fewer than 250,000 population) and six nonmetro categories (i.e., urban populations of 20,000 or more, adjacent to a metro area; urban population of 20,000 or more, not adjacent to a metro area; urban population of 2,500 to 19,999, adjacent to a metro area; urban population of 2,500 to 19,999, not adjacent to a metro area; completely rural or less than 2,500 urban population, adjacent to a metro area; and completely rural or less than 2,500 urban population, not adjacent to a metro area).
