The US Census Bureau has released the 2017 American Community Survey (ACS) data. The ACS is an ongoing survey of individuals and households. The government uses this information to help distribute federal and state funds each year, and the Prosper Waco backbone organization uses the data to track our community’s progress toward the initiative goals. The ACS includes information about population demographics, employment, income, educational attainment, housing and other topics. It is important to note that while the newly released ACS data breaks down 2017 outcomes, it is the best available and most recent data for our community to use to guide the work of the initiative.
This report is a “one-stop shop” for residents, organizations, employers and others to learn about the history of the Prosper Waco initiative, efforts addressing the community’s goals, key partners advancing the work of the initiative, and the opportunities for residents and organizations to get involved in improving overall quality of life in our community.
