WASHINGTON, Sept. 28, 2011 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The following tip sheet was released today by the U.S. Census Bureau:
Intercensal Population Estimates: 2000 – 2010 — A series of annual estimates covering the 2000-2010 period, produced by modifying the estimates prepared previously for this period to reflect 2010 Census results. Reference date is July 1 for each year, plus a set of estimates with an April 1 date for 2000 and 2010. Estimates are provided for the U.S., states and counties by demographic characteristics (age, sex, race and Hispanic origin).
Having a consistent time series of population estimates that reflect (or benchmark to) 2000 Census and 2010 Census counts is important for any study of the population over time. The intercensal estimates can be used, for example, to track trends in population changes or as denominators for calculating birth and death rates and other population characteristics. The intercensal population estimates are also used as survey controls for the American Community Survey. Internet address: http://www.census.gov/popest/intercensal/index.html.
