American Community Survey data update

The latest American Community Survey data update (2014) was released on December 3, 2015.  The five-year statistics (e.g., 2010-2014) are commonly used for descriptive and comparison purposes.   With this update, users can for the first time compare two non-overlapping 5-year ACS data sets.  Here are some links that may be useful:
