Starting the second week of August 2021, the 2021 U.S. data for ArcGIS Business Analyst Pro (extension to ArcGIS Pro), ArcGIS Business Analyst Desktop (extension to ArcMap), and ArcGIS Business Analyst Enterprise will be available for download from MyEsri.

The 2021 U.S. data release also marks the third annual release of Esri's Time Series. The Time Series database contains total population, households, and housing units data for every year between the previous decennial census and Esri's current estimates. The Time Series covers the entire decade, from 2010 to 2021.

The following ArcGIS StoryMap showcases some ways in which you can use the Historic Time Series variables.
