This research report compiles data from the U.S. Census Bureau’s American Community Survey (ACS) for City of Pittsburgh neighborhoods. The ACS is a new source of information for analysis of small geographic areas. These data reflect survey responses collected over a five year period between 2005 and 2009 and are the first data released by the ACS program at the census tract and block group level of geography. Previous releases of ACS data have been limited to places with populations of 20,000 or more, including states, regions, counties and large municipalities. With the release of the fiveyear ACS, it is now possible to compile information about neighborhood conditions in the City of Pittsburgh.
