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

The release of Vintage 2010 estimates provides the opportunity to make comparisons with the 2010 Census to assess the accuracy of the estimates. Differences between the estimates and Census counts should be interpreted as error in the estimates and not the Census counts. 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 for National, State and County, Puerto Rico population estimates, State and County Population Estimates by Age, Sex, Race, and Hispanic Origin, and Incorporated Place and Minor Civil Division Population Estimates.

Subcounty Totals - Released January 2013

Component ID: #ti1828945780

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.

1990 Based July 1, 2000 Estimates Used for Estimates Evaluation

This set of national, state, county, and subcounty population estimates were prepared as an evaluation set of 1990 based population estimates. These estimates were prepared using the methodology in place in the late 1990s, with the April 1, 1990 Census as the base, and the latest input data available in early 2000. The results of these 1990 based estimates for 2000 compared to the Census 2000 enumerated population provide the basis for evaluating the population estimates prepared by the Population Estimates and Projections Program during the 1990s.

A discussion of the results of the evaluation for subcounty areas can be found in Population Division Working Paper No. 70, "Evaluation of 2000 Subcounty Population Estimates," by Greg Harper, Chuck Coleman and Jason Devine, issued in May 2003. Results of additional analysis for states and counties will appear in a forthcoming Population Division Working Paper.

Note: Total population change includes net federal movement and residual. Net federal movement is the temporary movement of Federally affiliated U.S. citizens. These data consist mostly of movement of the active duty Armed Forces and Armed Forces dependents between the United States and overseas. Also included is the movement of civilian Federal employees and their dependents. The residual results from the application of a national population control to state and county population estimates. The residual is the difference in state and county population before and after the application of the control. The residual is not a demographic component of population change.
