The U.S. Census Bureau will hold a webinar news conference to highlight key findings from its first set of population estimates for each of the nation's counties, metropolitan and micropolitan statistical areas and Puerto Rico municipios since the 2010 Census. These estimates will examine population change for all of these areas between April 1, 2010, and July 1, 2011. Media with embargo access will be able to view the estimates beginning several hours prior to the webinar. The estimates will be released April 5.
The news conference will consist of a simultaneous audio conference and online presentation. Information on accessing the online presentation is provided below. Reporters will be able to ask questions once the presentation is complete. We suggest reporters log in and call in early.
