Vintage 2010 Population Estimates and 2010 Census Counts for the United States, States, Counties, Puerto Rico, and Subcounty Areas

The Vintage 2010 estimates were compared against the 2010 Census to evaluate the accuracy of the estimates. They are based on Census 2000 and were created without incorporation or consideration of the 2010 Census results. For background on how the estimates were produced, see the Release Notes for Vintage 2010 Estimates. For full methodological detail on the production of population estimates, please refer to Vintage 2009 methodology statements.

Additional annual Vintage 2010 estimates have been prepared for the components of population change (births, deaths, and migration), as well as for demographic characteristics of the population (age, sex, race, and Hispanic origin).


State and County Components of Population Change - Released March 2012

Note: The CO-EST2010-ALLDATA file that was released on Thursday, 3/29/2012 contained an error. The components of change for the period 7/1/2009 to 6/30/2010 were incorrect. The file was removed from the website on Monday, 4/2/2012, and replaced with a corrected file on Friday, 4/6/2012.

United States Demographic Characteristics - Released March 2012

Note: The file "NC-EST2010-ALLDATA.csv" that was previously available was incorrectly aggregated. The sum of the five race groups (each OMB race alone or in combination with other races) equaled the total population, even though people of more than one race should have been represented multiple times. The file was replaced with a corrected version on September 10, 2012.
