Census Bureau to Embargo Vintage 2022 Population Estimates

Press Release Number CB23-43

U.S. Counties and Puerto Rico Municipios

MARCH 14, 2023 — The U.S. Census Bureau will offer a two-day embargo period for qualified media to view the Vintage 2022 population estimates for U.S. counties and Puerto Rico municipios. Statistics to be released include total population and components of change (births, deaths, and domestic/international migration).

The release of metropolitan and micropolitan statistical area Vintage 2022 population estimates has been postponed from March to May to accommodate the transition from counties to planning regions in Connecticut. This data release will be limited to total population and will not include the components of change. The delay and change to product availability is only expected to affect Vintage 2022 estimates. 


Tuesday, March 28, 2023, at 10 a.m. EDT to Thursday, March 30, 2023, at 12:01 a.m. EDT.
