New County Estimates for 2016 With Components of Change (since 2010)
The Census Bureau released their county and metropolitan area level population estimates today. The MCDC
has completed their standard processing of these data, creating new uscom16 and mocom16 data sets and a
series of reports based upon these data. These data sets can be accessed via Uexplore/Dexter at
(The first five rows reference the five new data sets.) These datasets are all alike in terms of the data being
reported (pop estimates with annual component of change estimates for the post-2010 era) differing only in terms
of what geography is being summarized and for what geographic universe. uscom16 and uscomcbsas16 are the
national collections; uscom16 has summaries for counties and states, while uscomcbsa2016 has comparable data for
CBSAs (Core Based Statistical Areas, i.e. metropolitan and micropolitan statistical areas) as well as US totals.
We have also generated a series of reports based upon these
data that can be accessed at the population estimates Reports index page.
County Level Charts and Maps
Using these new data we have created a set of charts and maps showing some key variables measuring change in population between 2015 and 2016 at the county level.
These are the same bar charts and choropleth maps (one set per state) that we did last year.
You can access via Uexplore in the popcharts2016
subdirectory of the popests data directory. The
Menumap.html page can be used to
view a county level map for the entire U.S. that also doubles as a "menu map" where you click within a state to view
charts and maps for that state.
Regular users of this web site will recognize the fact that these 2016 vintage datasets, reports, charts, etc. are
the same products we have been producing for many years.
