2008 National Population Projections

The Population Projections Program produces projections of the United States resident population by age, sex, race, and Hispanic origin. The 2008 projections are based on Census 2000 and were produced using a cohort-component method. The projections are based on assumptions about future births, deaths, and net international migration. The Census Bureau releases new national population projections periodically.
