MCDC News and Updates

Data Updates (September 2021)

Just a couple of late updates this time. They’re late because the raw data was released later than usual due to COVID and the decennial census.

  • NCHS (National Center for Health Statistics) “bridged race” estimates for 2020, including state- and county-level numbers with detail by single years of age, race, sex, and Hispanic origin. These datasets are located in the nchsbri directory of our data archive. Note that we are starting a new decade here, so the new files will contain only the vintage 2020 estimates. Next year’s updates will include 2020 and 2021, and so on for the rest of this decade.
  • New 2020 data for the State/county annual population change, Population trends with demographics, and Population estimates by age applications.

As always, please contact the MCDC website manager with any questions or comments.
