Current Census Bureau Estimates

The Census Bureau’s Population Estimates Program produces estimates of the population for the United States, states, counties, cities, and towns. Demographic components of population change (births, deaths, and migration) and characteristics (age, sex, race and ethnicity) are produced annually.

2010 Census Resources

The Decennial Census provides the most complete count of residents of the United States. It is mandated by Article I, Section 2 of the Constitution and is conducted every 10 years. The results are used to determine apportionment (the number of seats each state has in the U.S. House of Representatives) and political redistributing. These data are also used to determine the distribution of billions of dollars of federal funds to local communities. It provides valuable data for demographic researchers, business and policy analysts, and community planners.

Historic Census Data

The decennial census has been conducted every ten years since 1790. It provides an historical demographic record of who we once were and who we have become. These data are reported at very small geographies (blocks) and are our most precise measures of community and population change. Find historic census data for total population and housing units by nation, the state, counties, cities, and neighborhoods.
