What is Demographic Analysis? Answer: a set of data used to develop national level estimates of the population for comparison with decennial census counts. Estimates look at population by age, sex, two race groups and for the first time, the Hispanic population under the age of 20.
This past Monday, the U.S. Census Bureau released the 2010 Demographic Analysis estimates. These estimates are an independent gauge of the U.S. population using a very different technique than is used for the 2010 Census. Numbers are generated from data on births and deaths, international migration and Medicare enrollment.
The U.S. Census Bureau, for the first time, produced five series of estimates reflecting different assumptions about each of the data sources, in addition, the U.S. Census Bureau is providing data prior to the release of the 2010 Census counts.
