2012 Population Estimates for Cities and Towns

Each year, the Census Bureau's Population Estimates Program utilizes current data on births, deaths, and migration to calculate population change since the most recent decennial census and produce a time series of estimates of population, demographic components of change, and housing units. The annual time series of estimates begins with the most recent decennial census data and extends to the vintage year. These estimates are used in federal funding allocations, as survey controls, as denominators for vital rates and per capita time series, and as indicators of recent demographic changes. With each new release of annual estimates, the entire time series of estimates is revised for all years back to the last census. All previously published estimates are superseded and archived.

Below are the data showing the most recent population estimates for each county and their respective towns and cities. The two maps give you a quick visual as to areas (shaded in green) that the Estimates Program show as having gained population since the 2010 Census.
