About Census Data
These data are from the 2016-2020 American Community Survey (ACS). The ACS is run by the US Census Bureau and provides more detailed information than the full census that occurs every ten years. This ACS also tried to account for people who did not respond in the 2020 census (due to citizenship questions).
Each unit in this map represents a census tracts. Census tracts mostly follow other natural or man-made boundaries and include about 3,000 to 6,000 people. GES is now made up of three tracts, one for Globevile, and two for the Elyria and Swansea areas. Census tracts are very useful in this study because they have the most detailed information available from the census and allow for comparison between GES and other parts of Denver.
