Demographic

Estimates of National and State Population by Age, Sex, Race and
Hispanic
Origin: July 1, 2009 -- Is the nation getting younger or older? Which
states have the oldest residents? Which states have more men than
women?
How rapidly is the minority population growing nationally and in each
state? National and state population estimates cross-tabulated by these
demographic characteristics provide the answers. These are the last
demographic estimates the Census Bureau will publish before the release
of the official 2010 Census counts next year. (Scheduled for release
June 10.)

Estimates of County Population by Age, Sex, Race and Hispanic Origin:
July 1, 2009 -- More of the nation's 3,142 counties are becoming
majority-minority, meaning more than 50 percent of their population is
made up of people other than single-race, non-Hispanic whites. Tables
of population estimates by these demographic characteristics are
available for the nation's counties. The next time corresponding
numbers are released, early next year, they will be 2010 Census counts
used for redistricting.
(Scheduled for release June 10.)

State and County Housing Unit Estimates: July 1, 2009 -- Geary County,
Kan., in the northeast part of the state, had the highest growth rate
of housing units of any county in the nation last year. Updated
estimates of the nation's housing stock at the national, state and
county levels for
2009 will show whether this county continues to lead the country.
(Tentatively scheduled for release June 16.)

Subcounty Population Estimates: July 1, 2009 -- New Orleans, continuing
its recovery from Hurricane Katrina, had the nation's fastest growth
rate among large cities (100,000 or more population) last year. Find
out whether "The Big Easy" will repeat this distinction when July 1,
2009, population estimates of the nation's incorporated places --
cities, towns, villages and boroughs -- are released. (Scheduled for
release June 22.)

State and Metropolitan Area Data Book: 2010 -- With information on
topics ranging from the prevalence of physicians in the Philadelphia
area to the number of daily newspapers in New Mexico, this reference
book serves as “Uncle Sam’s Almanac” for subnational areas. Published
periodically since 1979, it contains more than 1,600 data items on
myriad subjects in the news, such as health care, immigration,
transportation and commuting, and telecommunications. Data from
nonprofits, private businesses and government statistical agencies,
including the Census Bureau, are provided for the nation, states,
metropolitan areas and their component counties and micropolitan areas.
(Tentatively scheduled for release in late June.)


2010 International Data Base Update -- This data series is an update to
the estimates and projections that serve as a consistent set of
demographic indicators -- population size and growth, mortality,
fertility and net migration -- for 227 countries and other areas of the
world with populations of 5,000 or more. This release focuses on the
expected growth in post-earthquake Haiti and the Dominican Republic.
(Scheduled for release in late June.)

(Tentatively scheduled for release in June.)

The Asian Population in the United States: 2007 and 2008 -- A series of

Seasonality of Moves and the Duration and Tenure of Residence: 2004 --
Every year, millions of people in the United States pack up and move.
How long do people stay in one place? What time of year are people
likeliest to move? How far do they go? What are the characteristics of
movers -- marital status, parenthood, citizenship, education,
employment status, income, race and ethnicity? Are renters
transitioning to home ownership or do they remain renters while owners
remain owners? These data come from the 2004 Survey of Income and
Program Participation and offer a glimpse into the mobility of the
population. (Tentatively scheduled for release in June.)
Who's Minding the Kids? Child Care Arrangements: Spring 2005/Summer
