Search results from queries of the CDs can be exported to separate files in Dbase, Lotus, Excel or any fixed like text format. Also, each record in a user file can be matched by main latitude and longitude coordinates to the census tract and block group level.

2.2.3 American Community Survey - The first data set from the American Community Survey due out in mid-March on CD-ROM and will include a software package called Beyond 2000 which allows viewing, charting and mapping of the data. The ACS is a new survey which collects information similar to that found in the decennial census, except that this data allow users to see updated data every year for small areas of geography. It is a sample of households and annual averages are developed. The survey was first conducted at 4 sites in 1995 and the data sets from 1995 are currently available at the Census web site along with a fuller explanation of the ACS. More sites will be added in years to come as the ACS is expanded.
