November 3, 1998 voting-age population projections by state are provided of those aged 18 and over, 18 to 24, 25 to 44, 45 to 64 and 65 and over by gender for the three race groups, White, Black, Other, and the two origin groups, Hispanic and Non-Hispanic. The total of the three race groups or the total of the two origin groups add up to the total voting-age population. The voting-age population is projected to November 3, 1998, the actual date of the election, rather than November 1, 1998 to distinguish this product from many other products that utilize a date of November 1, 1998.
A brief description of the methodology used to construct these projections follows. The exact manner of construction was dependent upon the relevant data available at the time of creation (January 1998) as well as expert judgment.
This state-level data has not yet been adjusted to be consistent with the national-level data. This adjustment is accomplished through the following two steps.
November 1, 1996 = ((123/365) * (797R - 796R)) + 796R
November 1, 1997 = ((123/365) * (797R - 796R)) + 797R
November 3, 1998= ((367/365) * (1197R -1196R)) + 1197R)
