Because the ACS is a different survey, compared to the Census 2000 "long form," the results are not exactly comparable. Because trend analysis is important, we have developed these spreadsheets to give transportation planners a handy way to examine trends by looking at the differences between Census 2000 results, and the 2007-2009 and the 2010-2012 ACS.
For these spreadsheets, the change between the Census 2000 and the 2007-2009 ACS are used to determine the ranking of the areas with the most changes. Then, the 2010-2012 ACS results are added for those areas.
