Census Bureau Retires American FactFinder, Transitions Data to New Platform

March 2020

On March 30, the U.S. Census Bureau retired American FactFinder (AFF), its statistics and information search engine, after 20 years. After March 30, AFF will be decommissioned and no longer available.

Data.census.gov is the new platform to access data from the U.S. Census Bureau. The vision for data.census.gov is to improve the customer experience by making data available from one centralized place so that data users spend less time searching for data content and more time using it.

Data previously released on AFF are now being released on the new platform. Since the new site is still under development, not all of the data from AFF have been migrated over to data.census.gov.
