*** This is where to start for using Census data in GIS.
Data products are released in the year following the single year or multiyear period in which data are collected. ACS data includes median home value, median income, percent foreign-born, percent without health insurance, etc. This type of demographic data for small areas (down to tract and block group for the 5yr data) has not been released from Census since the 2000 long form data releases. This data replaces the data formerly collected via the Census long form.
