<p> The American Community Survey (ACS) is an ongoing statistical survey that samples a small percentage of the population every year -- giving communities the information they need to plan investments and services. The 5-year public use microdata sample (PUMS) for 2012-2016 is a subset of the 2012-2012 ACS sample. It contains the same sample as the combined PUMS 1-year files for 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015 and 2016. This data collection provides a person-level subset of 133,781 respondents whose occupations were coded as arts-related in the 2011-2015 ACS PUMS. </p> <p> The 2012-2016 PUMS is the seventh 5-year file published by the ACS. This data collection contains five years of data for the population from households and the group quarters (GQ) population. The GQ population and population from households are all weighted to agree with the ACS counts which are an average over the five year period (2012-2016). The ACS sample was selected from all counties across the nation. </p> <p> The ACS provides social, housing, and economic characteristics for demographic groups covering a broad spectrum of geographic areas in the United States. For a more detailed list of variables of what these categories include please see the decriptions of variables section. </p>Cf: http://doi.org/10.3886/ICPSR36998.v1
