Bridged-Race Resident Population Estimates
United States, State and County
for the years 1990 - 2012

Bridged-Race Population Estimates Data Summary

Summary

The National Center for Health Statistics releases bridged-race population estimates of the July 1st resident population of the United States, for use in calculating vital rates. These estimates result from "bridging" the 31 race categories used in Census 2000, as specified in the 1997 Office of Management and Budget (OMB) standards for the collection of data on race and ethnicity, to the four race categories specified under the 1977 standards (Asian or Pacific Islander, Black or African American, American Indian or Alaska Native, White). Many data systems, such as vital statistics, are continuing to use the 1977 OMB standards during the transition to full implementation of the 1997 OMB standards.

On the 1990-2012 query page, postcensal estimates are available for year 2010 and later; intercensal estimates are available for the years 1990-1999 and 2000-2009:

  • Postcensal estimates.
    Postcensal population estimates are estimates made for the years following a census, before the next census has been taken. Postcensal estimates are derived by updating the resident population enumerated in the decennial census using various measures of population change. Each year following the decennial census, the U.S. Census Bureau produces a series of postcensal estimates that includes estimates for the current data year and revised estimates for earlier years. Estimates for earlier years in a given series are revised to reflect 1) changes in the components of population change data sets (for example, a preliminary natality file is replaced with a final natality file), 2) challenges to the population estimates, and 3) changes in the estimation methodology. A series of estimates is referred to as a Vintage and the last year in a series is used to name it. For example, the Vintage 2012 postcensal series has estimates for July 1, 2010, July 1, 2011 and July 1, 2012. Because of the revisions made to the estimates in each series, estimates for a given year from different series will differ.
  • Intercensal estimates.
    Intercensal population estimates are estimates made for the years between two completed censuses which take into account both censuses. Intercensal estimates are derived by adjusting the final postcensal series of estimates for the decade to account for differences between the enumerated April 1, census counts (from the census at the end of the decade) and the postcensal estimates of the April 1 population (from the final postcensal series). For example, after completion of the 2010 census, the postcensal estimates for the period between April 1, 2000 and April 1, 2010 were modified to account for differences between the April 1, 2010 census count and April 1 postcensal estimate (based on the 2000 census). The patterns of population change observed over the decade are preserved. Intercensal estimates supersede the postcensal estimates previously made for the time period. The 1990-1999 intercensal estimates are based on both the 1990 and 2000 census counts; the 2000-2009 intercensal estimates are based on the 2000 and 2010 censuses.

The Bridged-Race Population data on WONDER are updated annually to include the most recently available bridged-race population estimates. Earlier versions are maintained as separate online databases. The Vintage 2012 data base includes the bridged-race 1990-1999 intercensal estimates, the revised bridged-race 2000-2009 intercensal estimates, and bridged-race Vintage 2012 postcensal estimates for years 2010-2012. The Vintage 2002-Vintage 2009 data bases include the bridged-race intercensal population estimates for 1990-1999 and postcensal population estimates for 2000 and beyond from a particular postcensal vintage of estimates.

Step 3, Select demographics;
Step 4, Other Options.

'By-Variables' Select variables that serve as keys (indexes) for organizing your data. See How do I organize my data? for more information.
Note:   To map your data, you must select at least one geographical location as a "By-Variable" for grouping your data, such as Region or State.
Help Click on any button labeled "Help", located to the right hand side of the screen at the top of each section. Each Control's label, such as the "Location" label next to the Location entry box, is linked to the on-line help for that item.
Send Sends your data request to be processed on the CDC WONDER databases. The Send buttons are located on the bottom of the Request page, and also in the upper right corner of each section, for easy access.



Step 1. Organize table layout:
Group Results By   Select up to five variables to group (summarize, stratify, index) your data. See Group Results By below for more specifics and hints.
Title   Enter any desired description to display as a title with your results.



Group Results By

Select up to five variables to group (summarize, stratify, index) your data. For example, you could select to group your data by State and by County. The list of variables includes:

  1. Location - National, State and County (no territories);
  2. Year - July 1st estimates for 1990 through last year of series;
  3. Race - Asian or Pacific Islander, Black or African American, American Indian or Alaska Native, White;
  4. Ethnicity - Hispanic or Latino, Non-Hispanic;
  5. Sex (Gender) - Female, Male;
  6. Age - age groups (infants under 1 year, age 1-4 years, 5 year age groups through age 84, age 85 and older); single-year of age through age 84 years (not available in 1990-2002).
How?    See How do I organize my data? for more information.

Hints:   

  1. To make a map, you must "group results by" a geographic variable, such as Region or State, as the first "By-Variable." After you get the table, then click the Map tab.
  2. You cannot make charts when your data has more than two By-Variables.
  3. You cannot make charts for data grouped by State and also by County.
  4. When grouping by more than one geographic variable, select them in order of size. For example, group by region, and by state, and by county.
  5. You can only group data by Age Groups when the Age Groups radio button is selected under Step 3. Likewise, you can only group data by single-year "Age" values when the Age radio button is selected in Step 3.
Notes:   
  • Note that single-year ages are not available in the 1990-2002 online database.
  • The "By-Variable" options selected affect whether national, state or county level data are requested. You can pick between State or County data in step 4, because the single-year-of-age counts vary at the State and County levels for the years 1991-1999 (see the note on inconsistent totals below).
    • If the results are grouped by state (in step 1) or if a specific state is selected (in step 2), then population estimates are from the state data by "default", and there is no need to specify the state table (in step 4).
    • If the results are grouped by county (in step 1) or if a specific county is selected (in step 2), then county-level estimates are from the county data by "default", and there is no need to specify the county table (in step 4).


Step 2. Select location:

Limit your data request to specific locations here. The default settings are national data, the United States.


Location

Use this field to specify the location or locations to be included in the data request. You may select a single county or a group of counties, a single state or a group of states, one or more regions, or the total U.S. Be sure the button for the geographic list you want to use is checked when selecting location values.

How?  
  1. Click the round radio button to choose between Regions (includes Divisions, States and Counties) or States (includes Counties).
  2. See How do I use a Finder? for hints on how to search for and select your desired locations.
    • The default value is all locations (the United States).
    • See Finder Tool help for more hints.

Notes:   



Step 3. Select demographics and years:
Limit your data for any of the following data elements:
  1. Age Groups - Age Groups - (infants under 1 year, age 1-4 years, 5 year age groups through age 84, age 85 and over);
  2. Age - single-year of age through age 84 years and 85 years and over (not available in the 1990-2002 data)
  3. Sex (Gender) - Female, Male
  4. Race - Bridged-race categories: Asian or Pacific Islander, Black or African American, American Indian or Alaska Native, White
  5. Ethnicity - Hispanic or Latino, Not Hispanic or Latino
  6. July 1st Estimates - July 1st estimate for each year in series

Age: Single-Year of Age or Five Year Age Groups

Population estimates are available both by single-year of age (not available for the Vintage 2002 estimates) and by 5-year age groups. Click the appropriate radio button to select either 5-year Age Groups or single-year-of-age cohorts through 84 years of age.
How?  
  1. See How do I change a "CheckBox?" A "Radio Button?" to pick your preferred list of age values.
  2. See How do I select items from the list box? to select values.

Note:  The U.S. Census Bureau annually releases unbridged population estimates for five-year age groups and race at the county level (http://www.census.gov/popest/research/eval-estimates/eval-est2010.html). The Census Bureau does not release bridged-race or unbridged estimates by single-year of age at the county level due to concerns about the reliability of these estimates. However, these estimates are provided to the National Center for Health Statistics to meet programmatic needs such as the creation of age groupings that differ from the standard groupings used by the Census Bureau. Users of the single-year-of-age county-level bridged-race population estimates should carefully consider the limited reliability of these estimates.


Age Groups

The Age Groups field contains values for age groups: under 1 year, 1-4 years, 5-year age groups for ages 5 years through 84 years, and 85 years and over. Select any combination of values.

How?  
  1. Be sure the Age Groups radio button is selected. See How do I change a "CheckBox?" A "Radio Button?" to pick your preferred list of age values.
  2. See How do I select items from the list box?.

Notes:

  • For the years 2000 and later, the Age Groups field is derived by summarizing the individual year age data into 5-year groupings.
  • When the data results are exported to a file, the Age Group Code is shown, as well as the sort sequence value.
  • The Age Group Code is PHIN compatible through age 84 years.

Step 4. Other options:
Export Results   If checked, then query results are exported to a local file. More information on how to import this file into other applications can be found here.
How?   See CheckBox.
Show Totals   If checked, then totals and sub-totals display in the results table.
How?   See CheckBox.
Show Zero Values   If checked, then rows containing zero counts display in the results table. If unchecked, then zero count rows are suppressed.
How?   See CheckBox.
Precision   Precision is not available for this dataset because population counts are whole numbers.
Data Access Timeout   This value specifies the maximum time to wait for the data access for a query to complete. If the data access takes too long to complete, a message will be displayed and you can increase the timeout or simplify your request. If you can't complete a request using the maximum timeout, contact user support and we will try to run a custom data request for you.
Data Table   You can specify State or County data tables for single-year-of-age estimates for the years 1990-1999. This special option applies only to the Vintage 2003 and Vintage 2004 data requests. It is recommended that you obtain population denominators from the County single-year-of-age table when calculating rates with county-level data for the years before the year 2000, and from the State single-year-of-age table when calculating rates with state-level data for the years before the year 2000. Please see the notes below.
How?   See Radio Button.
Notes:
  • You can only obtain data from State or County tables when you pick single-year-of-age ("Age") data values, and when you select years between 1990-1999 (or "All Years").
  • For more information, see the section about inconsistent totals below.
  • The Default selection obtains national level estimates, with the following exceptions:
    • If the results are grouped by region, division or state or if specific regions, divisions or states are selected, then state-level estimates are shown as the "default."
    • If the results are grouped by county or if specific counties are selected, then county-level estimates are shown as the "default."
  • County:  
    • Select the County table to get county, state and national estimates from the County series of single-year-of-age estimates for years 1990-1999.
    • You can only select this option when you request single-year-of-age data for the years 1990-1999.
    • You should select the County table when you want estimates for the years 1990-1999 that are not grouped by (or limited to) County and/or single-year-of-age to be consistent with those estimates that are grouped by (or limited to) County and/or single-year-of-age.
    • When specific counties are requested, or when the data are grouped by County, then county-level estimates are reported. When the specific single-year-of-age selections are requested, or when the data are grouped by single-year-of-age, then single-year-of-age estimates are reported. In these cases, you need not specify the table.
  • State:  
    • Select the State table to get state and national estimates from the State series of single-year-of-age estimates for years 1990-1999.
    • You can only select this option when you request single-year-of-age data for the years 1990-1999.
    • You should select the State table when you want estimates for the years 1990-1999 that are not grouped by (or limited to) State and/or single-year-of-age to be consistent with those estimates that are grouped by (or limited to) State and/or single-year-of-age.
    • When specific states are requested (and no counties), or when the data are grouped by State (and not also by County), then state-level estimates are reported. When the specific single-year-of-age selections are requested, or when the data are grouped by single-year-of-age, then single-year-of-age estimates are reported. In these cases, you need not specify the table.

Data Source Information

All of the population estimates in these online databases are bridged-race population estimates produced by the U.S. Census Bureau in collaboration with the National Center for Health Statistics (NCHS) and released by NCHS.

  • National, State and County 1990-1999 Single-Year Age Estimates
    • Methodological explanation:
      Most of the state and national population estimates in the bridged-race population data base are obtained by summing county population estimates. However, this is not the case for the single-year of age population estimates for 1990-1999. For the single-year of age estimates for these years, there is a set of county estimates, a set of state estimates, and a set of national estimates. State and national totals obtained by summing the single-year of age county population estimates differ slightly from the population estimates on the state and national single-year of age files. National population estimates obtained by summing the state single-year of age estimates differ slightly from the population estimates on the single-year of age national file. When single-year of age population estimates are requested, the By-variables selected determines whether the population estimates will be drawn from the county, state, or national single-year of age file. Note: single-year of age estimates are not available for the Vintage 2002 online database.

      For the single-year of age intercensal estimates there are separate national, state, and county files. Separate county, state, and national files are maintained because the original county-level single-year of age intercensal file had some population counts of -1 (due to rounding). It was not feasible to rake the file to remove the -1s, the solution was to convert the -1s to zeros. To minimize the impact of the conversion on subtotals and totals (conversion of the -1s to zero increases them), state-level and national-level files were created as follows: 1) the state-level file was created by aggregating the original county-level file (with the -1s) to the state-level and any -1s remaining after aggregation were converted to zero (n=0 to 13 in a given year), 2) the national-level file was created by aggregating the original county-level file (with the -1s) to the national level (no -1s remained after aggregation).

      Thus, national and state totals obtained from the single-year of age intercensal county file differ slightly from those obtained from the state and national single-year of age files and national totals obtained from the single-year of age intercensal state file differ slightly from those obtained from the national file. In addition, totals obtained from the single-year of age county and state intercensal files differ slightly from those obtained from the 5-year age group intercensal file. Totals obtained from the single-year of age national intercensal file agree with totals from the 5-year age group file.

      For the postcensal population estimates and for the 5-year age group intercensal population estimates, state and national estimates are derived by summing county population estimates. As a result, all totals and subtotals obtained for the postcensal population estimates and for the 5-year age group intercensal estimates are consistent with each other.

    Notes:
    • The potential for error is greatest for the smallest population groups, particularly the smaller race groups and county level estimates. Although efforts were made to use the best available data and methods to produce the bridged estimates, the modeling process introduces error into the estimates.
    • Changes in methodology for the Vintage 2012, Vintage 2009, Vintage 2008 and Vintage 2007 series of population estimates:
      The Census Bureau implemented changes in the methodology used to produce the following postcensal series of estimates: Vintage 2012, Vintage 2009, Vintage 2008, and Vintage 2007. For more information, see:
    • Postcensal population estimates are estimates made for the years following a census, before the next census has been taken. Postcensal estimates are derived by updating the population enumerated in the decennial census using various measures of population change.
    • Intercensal population estimates are made for the period of time between decennial census years after the second census is completed, and such estimates replace the previous population projections for the time period. The 1990-1999 bridged-race intercensal estimates, which represent a revision of the annual time series of July 1 county postcensal population estimates by age, sex, race and Hispanic origin, were produced by the Population Estimates Program of the U.S. Bureau of the Census with support from the National Cancer Institute (NCI). These intercensal population estimates are based on the bridged single-race estimates of the April 1, 2000 resident population developed by the Bureau of the Census in collaboration with the National Center for Health Statistics (NCHS).
    • National, State and County Differences for 1990-1999 single-year age estimates:
      Inconsistent totals result when county, state and national level data are compared for the 1991-1999 single-year-of-age populations. More information is available at:

      • The Vintage 2003 and later years online databases include the July 26, 2004 release of population estimates for 1990-1999 with single-year ages. The county, state and national level population totals and sub-totals differ for the single-year ages in 1991-1999.
      • The national level estimates are consistent with the estimates in the April 15, 2003 release of the Bridged-Race 1990-1999 Intercensal Population Estimates with age groups.
      • It is recommended that you obtain population denominators from the County single-year-of-age table when calculating vital rates with county-level data, and from the State single-year-of-age table when calculating rates with state-level data.
      • You can explicitly select to obtain data from the County or the State tables when you are requesting single-year-of-age data for the years 1990-1999, in the Other Options section on the Request screen, see Data Table for more details.
      • The inconsistencies are summarized in the following table:
