  • American Community Survey (off-site link): The US Census Bureau's American Community Survey (ACS) provides demographic, housing, social, and economic information using a survey form similar to the 'long form' used for Census 2000 (and earlier). Unlike the decennial census, ACS data is the product of a rolling survey sent to a sample of citizens and are the surveys collected by the US Census for a given period of time (from one to five years). By contrast, the decennial census attempts to collect  information for all citizens for one specific day (e.g. April 1, 2010). Note: ACS data is included in the Census Quick Facts link referenced above.

  • AccessCollierville: Maintained by the Town of Collierville's Economic Development staff, this website provides additional information and demographic data about Collierville.
