|Summary:||The U.S. Census Bureau releases interim population projections of the resident population of the United States based on Census 2000 counts. Population projections are produced with the general assumption that state-specific trends in fertility, mortality, domestic migration, and international migration will continue.|

See Data Source Information for more details.
|In WONDER:||You can produce tables, maps, charts, and data extracts. Request national and state population projections for the years 2004-2030. You can limit and index your data by any and all of these variables:|
Please refer to the following topics:
|Output:|| You can produce tables, maps, charts, and data extracts.
|Variables:||Group results by or limit the following fields:|
|How?||The Request screen has sections to guide you through the
making a data request as step-by-step process.
However, to get your first taste of how the system works,
you might want to simply press any Send button,
and execute the default data request.
The data results for your query appear on the Table screen.
After you get your data results, try the Chart and Map screens.
Or export your data to a file (tab-delimited line listing) for download to your computer.
For more information, see the following:
|'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 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:
- To make a map, you must request data with a geographic location variable, such as State, as a "By-Variable." Then click the Map tab.
- You cannot make charts when your data has more than two By-Variables.
Note: The Age category values selected affect which options are valid as "By-Variables." You can pick either "Age Groups" or "Age-By-Year" (single-year-of-age) values for age. Be sure that the list you want is selected, see How do I change a..."Radio Button?" to pick your preferred list of age values.
- You can only group data by 5-year Age Groups when data is requested for Age Groups.
- You can only group data by single year Age values when data is requested for this field.
Step 2. Select location and time:
Limit the population to specific location or year selections here. Alternately, you can leave the settings at the default values (the United States and all years) and choose to organize or group the data results by State or Year to show these stratifications.
This dataset includes state locations (no territories). Use this field to specify the location or locations for the query. Select any number of locations.
Note: All state Federal Information Processing Standard (FIPS) codes in this dataset, regardless of the year, are the year 2000 Census FIPS codes. Please see state FIPS for tab-delimited lists of the state FIPS codes and names used.
Step 3. Select demographics:
- Age - age groups (age 0-4 years, 5 year age groups through age 84, age 85 and older); single year of age cohorts through age 84 years.
- Sex (Gender) - Female, Male;
Age CategoriesSelect either 5-year Age Groups or single-year-of-age cohorts through 84 years of age. Be sure the button for the list you want to use is checked when selecting age values.
The Age Groups field contains values for infants and young children ages 0-4 years, age in 5-year groupings from 5 years through 84 years, and age 85 years and older. Select any combination of values.
Note: When the data results are exported to a file, the Age Group Code and label are shown in separate columns.
"Age" or Single-Year-of-Age CohortsThis field contains age groups in single-year increments from under 1 year of age through 84 years of age, and a group of 85 years old and over. Select any combination of values.
Note: The age code and label are shown in separate columns when results are exported. The code values displayed in data export files correspond to the ages. For example, the code value "0" (zero) is the age < 1 year, the code value "1" is 1 year of age, through the code value "84" for 84 years of age, and the code value "85+" for 85 years of age and over.
Select Male, Female or All values.
Note: When results are exported, the code and label are shown in separate columns. The Gender code values are F for Female and M for Male.
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.|
|Show Totals:||If checked, then totals and sub-totals display in the results table.|
|Show Zero Values:||If checked, then rows containing zero counts display in the results table. If unchecked, then zero count rows are suppressed.|
|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.|
