This study examines state- and county-level data on population, age, race and ethnicity, housing occupancy and housing tenure, education, labor force, employment and unemployment, income and poverty, and migration patterns from the 2006-2010 American Community Survey (ACS) for the 13 Appalachian states. Information is summarized for five Appalachian subregions and five metro designations. This study includes ACS data topics that were in the 2010 decennial census, as well as others that are no longer available in the census, to provide a comparable time series of data for all counties in Appalachia.
