Why we offer this:

While the US Census Bureau offers free downloads of their data, it's often difficult and confusing to get bulk access to it at the granularity needed for advanced analysis.

We've pre-cleaned this data and packaged it into easy to use files for each year of the American Community Survey, each including 7500+ attributes like income, age, education, etc. We also include CBG geometries for 2010-2019 and 2020-2029, and the 2020 US Decennial Census data, so you can keep your demographic analysis up-to-date.
