The estimates provide data for the White, Black, Indian, and Asian populations, by sex, for 5-year age groups (0-4, 5-9, 10-14, etc. to 85+). An additional project provides similar data for Spanish. The race modification carried out by the Census Bureau in the MARS file assigned those persons who did not indicate a specific race on their census form (approximately 9.8 million) to White, Black, Indian, or Asian. Most of these persons were of Spanish heritage, and were assigned chiefly to the White population. The Bureau also modified the age distributions, most notably for the population under 5 years of age. Estimation Procedure 1. Race estimates (White, Black, and Other) for each county in 1990 were obtained by bringing the 1980 census figures forward with data on births, deaths, and estimated migration (internal and international). By controlling these estimates to 1990 census data, migration estimates for the decade consistent with both the 1980 and 1990 censuses were obtained. 2. Projections of births and deaths by race for 1990-95 were prepared. The projections were controlled to agree with the Census Bureau's national birth projections, middle series, in Current Population Reports, Series P-25, No.1092. 3. Population projections by race to 1995 were prepared using the 1980-90 migration rates. The projections were controlled to agree with the Bureau's national population projections, and to be consistent with their 1991 estimates of the total population of each county. The Asian population was estimated as a proportion of the "Other" races, the residual being American Indians. 4. The age and sex distribution in 1995 for each county was obtained using Demo-Detail's Alternative procedure as described in professional paper "A Preliminary Comparison of Demo-Detail's County Estimates by Age and Sex with the 1990 Census", presented at the annual meeting of the Southern Demographic Association, October 1991, available on request. The estimates for 1990, 1991 and 1992 (July 1) were obtained by interpolation between the data for April 1, 1990 and July 1, 1995, controlling them to the Bureau's national estimates by age, sex and race in Series P-25, No.1104, and to their 1991 estimates of the total population of each county. This produced the final estimates for White, Black, Indian and Asian, by age and sex.RECORD LAYOUT Tape Record Layout COUNTY AGE-SEX-RACE ESTIMATES (Total,White,Black,Asian): 1990-1992 Character Item 1 Blank 2-3 FIPS State Code 4-6 FIPS County Code 7-18 County Name 19-24 4/1/90 Total Male 0-4 years 25-30 5-9 years 31-36 10-14 years 37-42 15-19 years 43-48 20-24 years 49-54 25-29 years 55-60 30-34 years 61-66 35-39 years 67-72 40-44 years 73-78 45-49 years 79-84 50-54 years 85-90 55-59 years 91-96 60-64 years 97-102 65-69 years 103-108 70-74 years 109-114 75-79 years 115-120 80-84 years 121-126 85 yrs & over 127-234 Total Female (repeat) 235-342 White Male " 343-450 White Female " 451-558 Black Male " 559-666 Black Female " 667-774 Asian Male " 775-882 Asian Female " 883-1746 7/1/90 (repeat) 1747-2610 7/1/91 " 2611-3474 7/1/92 " (no CR/LF) Note: American Indian population can be obtained by subtraction.
