Demographic

State-Level Maps and Graphs on Voting — This is a menu-driven, interactive Web page with graphs showing percentages of adults by states who voted and registered in congressional and presidential elections between 1996 and 2010. In addition to voting and registration trends, there are graphs showing voting and registration by age, sex, educational attainment, and race and Hispanic origin. Some analysis is provided as well, as are thematic maps of states showing percent voting during each election. The statistics come from the Current Population Survey. (Tentatively scheduled for release late April.)

Shades of Gray: A Cross-Country Study of Health and Well-Being of the Older Populations in SAGE Counties: 2007-2010 — Examines the health status and access to health care among people 50 and older in six low- to middle-income countries that participated in the Study on Global Ageing and Adult Health (China, Ghana, India, Mexico, Russia and South Africa). Sponsored by the National Institute on Aging, this is the first-ever Census Bureau report to use data from this survey. (Tentatively scheduled for release May 14.)

Estimates of National, State and County Population by Age, Sex, Race and Hispanic Origin: July 1, 2011 — Is the nation getting younger or older? Which states and counties have the oldest residents? Which states and counties have more men than women? How rapidly is the minority population growing nationally and in each state and county? Or is it growing at all? National-, state-, and county-level population estimates cross-tabulated by these demographic characteristics provide the answers. These are the first such population estimates the Census Bureau has published since the release of the official 2010 Census counts. (Tentatively scheduled for release May 15.)
