The U.S. Census Bureau’s Population Estimates Program shows the NUMBER of people who live in an area. Estimates of the population for the nation, states, counties, cities, and towns are generated annually. Data on births, deaths, and migration are used to calculate population change that has occurred since the most recent decennial census and produce a time series of estimates.
Use this information if you need yearly official estimates of total population.
Total population figures for all geographic areas and all years of coverage are provided in an Excel (2013) spreadsheet.Download Data (.xls)
