Learn how the American Community Survey (ACS) calculates the margin of error (MOE) for estimates published on data.census.gov. See how to calculate MOEs when combining ACS estimates within a table or across geographies using the ACS Variance Replicate Estimates (VRE) tables. In addition, learn how to calculate your own estimates and MOEs using the Public Use Microdata Sample (PUMS) data.
