The Federal-State Cooperative for Population Estimates (FSCPE)

Informal cooperation between the Federal Government and the states in the area of local population estimates existed as early as 1953. In 1966, the National Governor's Conference, in cooperation with the Council of State Governments, initiated and sponsored the ‘First National Conference on Comparative Statistics,’ held in Washington, D.C. This conference gave national recognition to the increasing demand for subnational population estimates. Between 1967 and 1973, a group of Census Bureau and state employees charged with developing annual subnational population estimates, formalized the Federal State Cooperative for Population Estimates.
