The Rural Data Portal

The Rural Data Portal is a simple, easy-to-use online resource that provides essential information on the social, economic, and housing characteristics of communities in the United States. The Rural Data Portal is targeted toward rural communities, but a wide range of information is presented for the nation, states, and counties for rural, suburban, and urban areas.

Most of the information provided in the Rural Data Portal comes from Housing Assistance Council (HAC) tabulations of various public use data sets, such as the 2010 Census of Population and Housing, the American Community Survey (ACS), and Home Mortgage Disclosure Act Data.

HAC is a national nonprofit organization that supports affordable housing efforts in rural areas of the United States.
