"Census Bureau Survey Indicates How Americans Live" - NPR. 09/19/2013.

William Frey says that the American Community Survey provides many economic indicators (income, employment, housing) as well demographic information on migration, fertility, and racial/ethnic/age population distribution that depict a telling picture of the U.S. In terms of the economy, Frey says that on many ACS indicators we "have either bottomed out or are close to bottoming out of the kind of bad news stories we've been hit with over the past several years."
