Unlike previous years, the 2011-2015 ACS Survey base data file has resulted in numerous data changes.

WHAT THIS MEANS

Most of the HMDA/CRA/Redlining analysis on 2017 data using the previous preliminary file could have significant changes.

WHAT TO DO NOW

Geocode your files again and run reports and/or analysis (ASAP!) to find any discrepancies with the updated 2017 census file.

MORE TO COME

We are finalizing our comprehensive review of the changes and its impact and will forward our findings soon.
