The data provided here represents only a fraction of available data, and focuses on significant City trends and survey results.
In addition to the full count of residents in the United States through the U.S. Census Bureau's Decennial Census, the Census Bureau conducts annual surveys of a sample of people in communities throughout the nation with the more detailed American Community Survey (ACS). The latest demographic data for the City of Rockville population is from the Bureau's 2012-2016 ACS 5-year Estimates.
