Evaluation Estimates

Each decade, the Population Estimates Program has the opportunity to make comparisons between the final series of estimates for the decade and the latest decennial census to assess the accuracy of the estimates. Differences between the estimates and Census counts are typically interpreted as error in the estimates and are used to inform research and methodological improvements over the decade.
