These estimates have been developed by applying a mathematical formula to take into account differences between the postcensal time series population estimates and the 1990 and Census 2000 results.
The Population Estimates Program produces for states each year: total population estimates, estimates by age and sex, and estimates by race and Hispanic origin. The release of total population estimates at the end of the calendar year also includes demographic components of change. In the spring, the Program releases population by age and sex, presenting tables for different age groupings as well as single year of age. A third release in the summer presents estimates by age, sex, race, and Hispanic origin. All estimates are for the resident population unless noted otherwise. The reference date for state estimates is July 1.
NOTE: All population figures are based on the 1990 Census; they do not reflect Census 2000 counts.
The above population estimates were produced in cooperation with the Federal-State Cooperative Program for Population Estimates (FSCPE)
