How do list this as a reference without a date- is this correct: United States Census Bureau (N.D.) QuickFacts beta: Hall County, Georgia [Data file]. Retrieved from http://www.census.gov/quickfacts/table/PST045214/13139,00,13.
Here is the info in the sentence, how do I cite in sentence:
In addition, the prevalence of persons age 5 years+, between 2009-2013 that spoke a language other than English at home was 26.2 % in Hall county, higher than the nation’s prevalence (20.7%) and state’s (13.3%) (United States Census Bureau (N.D.) QuickFacts beta: Hall County, Georgia).

Thanks for your help!

Hello,

This is what I would do:

United States Census Bureau. (n.d.). QuickFacts beta: Hall County, Georgia [Data set]. Retrieved from http://www.census.gov/quickfacts/table/PST045214/13139,00,13

Notice that I've changed details such as punctuation and capitalization, but the basic form was well designed!

In the text, use only the first two elements of a reference entry. This is usually the author and the date. In this case, it would be: ...higher than the nation’s prevalence (20.7%) and state’s (13.3%) (United States Census Bureau, n.d.).

It might be easier to read if you began the sentence with the citation: According the the United States Census Bureau (n.d.), blah blah blah...

Thanks for asking a librarian.
