Data Source: ACS - The American Community Survey (ACS) is an ESTIMATE of each indicator, which means there is a margin of error. Future versions of the dashboard will display margins of error. For now, exercise caution with 1-year estimates for Boone County, the City of Columbia and the Columbia School District. The 5-year estimates (for example 2012-2016) are much more reliable.1 of 1
