What does it tell me?
The Census Bureau’s Population Estimates
Program annually utilizes current data on births, deaths, and migration to
calculate population change since the most recent decennial census and produce
a time series of estimates of population, demographic components of change and
housing units. The annual time series of estimates begin with the most recent
decennial census data and extends to the vintage year.
