Demographic Trends 2010-2060
.. Population Estimates & Projections for U.S., States, Metros, Counties, Tracts
.. new projections incorporate results of Census 2020
.. see 2022 release dates

December 2021 .. how are county demographics changing in face of the pandemic and related factors? By 2030, all baby boomers will be older than age 65. This will expand the size of the older population so that 1 in every 5 residents will be retirement age. Older people will outnumber children for the first time in U.S. history by 2035 .. there will be 78.0 million people 65 years and older compared to 76.4 million under the age of 18. These recent projections will change. Many factors affect the change to the county level. Projections frequently to reflect the impact of these changing factors. An example, More than 53,000 migrants traveled as families to cross the southern border in March 2021, more than double the roughly 19,250 in the prior month, and the highest of border crossings in 15 years. How might this impact net migration at the county level. Now, next year, into the future?

Methodology & Vintages go to top
Demographic projections presented in this section are developed using an annual time series model. The population in period t (P[t]) for a county is defined/projected using the identity:
  P[t]:=P[t-1]+B[t]-D[t]+IM[t]+DM[t], where:
- P[t] -- resident population as of 7/1/t
- P[t-1] -- resident population as of 7/1/t
- B[t] -- births during the period 6/30/t-1 to 7/1/t
- D[t] -- deaths during the period 6/30/t-1 to 7/1/t
- IM[t] -- international migration during the period 6/30/t-1 to 7/1/t
- DM[t] -- domestic during the period 6/30/t-1 to 7/1/t

  • Projections are developed as vintages (released on a certain date).
  • County projections are developed annually and are updated in March and July
    .. the July update integrates updated age, race/origin and gender detail
    .. data presented in the table are extracts showing total population every 10 years
    .. the underlying dataset includes annual data for many items used in the model
  • Projections are developed for various scenarios.
    .. the option 2 scenario uses these assumptions:
    .. crude birth rate declines over time
    .. crude death rate increases over time
    .. migration follows patterns exhibited during the period 2010-2020
    .. historical annual data for the period 2010 through 2020 use Census Bureau estimates
    .. some counties are adjusted for specific circumstances
  • Different model specifications and vintages will have different projected values.

Demographics2060 Software & Data Analytics go to top
The Demographics2060 software is used to develop, manage access to and support analysis of the demographics estimates and projections. A version of the Demographics2060 Windows based software is available to users of the Demographics2060 data. The start-up view of the application is shown below. The grid, showing a profile for Fresno County, CA, can be structured to show different data views, such as comparative analysis, percentages, selected items across geography by row, etc. Optionally revise individual county models used to develop the projections. Link data from other sources. See sample profiles below created by 1) dbl-clicking a geoname from listbox at left, then 2) clicking SaveXLS button.

Profile Organization & Usage go to top
The following county base profile examples (links opening XLS spreadsheets) illustrate how the profiles are organized. These data are multi-sourced from ProximityOne and Federal Statistical System agencies. These examples makes use of the "base" profile with data running by year across columns, 2010-21, and subject matter by row. The base profiles update frequently. See the above projections schedule for additional information. Members of the no fee ProximityOne User Group receive email updates. Join here. Projections are not provided here; the projections continue to the 2060 column where provided.

The profiles are organized into four sections:
  • General Demographics (all counties; only these items are projected 2060)
      .. population and components of change
      .. selected population groups
      .. population by gender
      .. population by race/origin
      .. population by single year of age
      .. population by 5-year age and other age groups
  • Social Characteristics (counties 65,000 population or more; projections to 2030)
      .. households and living arrangements
      .. educational attainment
  • Economic Characteristics (projections to 2030)
      .. households by income (counties 65,000 population or more)
      .. median household income
      .. establishments by sector
      .. employment by sector
      .. wages by sector
      .. real GDP by sector
  • Housing Characteristics (projections to 2030)
      .. housing units by occupancy & tenure (counties 65,000 population or more)
      .. new residential construction (number of units & values) by units in structure
      .. housing price index (counties where available; based on transactions activity
