American Community Survey

The U.S. Census Bureau recently released estimates from the American Community Survey (ACS) for the combined years from 2007 to 2011, providing the only statistics down to the neighborhood level on school enrollment, jobs, housing and many other measures. 

According to the QuickFacts section for Fauquier County, we had 169 building permits, a 78.6% homeownership rate and our average mean travel time to work (minutes) for workers 16+ is 38.3 minutes.

In addition, the Bureau also launched Easy Stats, an online tool developed to make statistics quicker and easier to access. The interactive tool provides selected demographic and economic statistics from the American Community Survey. "Easy Stats" allows searching by geography down to the local level, including incorporated places like cities and towns and census designated places. You can view detailed race, age and gender breakdowns, and compare communities.
