ACS Profiles: Variable Metadata

This table shows how MCDC derives the values used in the ACS Profile report for the corresponding period. The codes in the definition refer to the U.S. Census Bureau's ACS base tables and variables. Example: Our Age5_9 variable is created from the sum of lines 004 (males 5 to 9 years) and 028 (females 5 to 9 years) from the ACS base table B01001.
