American Community Survey Geographies

ACS estimates use the legal boundaries as defined and available effective January 1st of the estimated year. For 3- and 5-Year estimates, the boundaries that are available and effective as of January 1 of the last year of the multiyear estimate period are used. So, for example, the 2005-2009 ACS 5-year estimates are based on boundaries as of January 1, 2009 which is the 2000 Census. Whereas the 2006-2010 ACS or any subsequent year will be based upon the new 2010 boundaries.

If you want the data in the 2000 boundaries select the 2009 ACS. If you want the data in the 2010 boundaries than select the 2010 (or later) versions instead.
