A note about population counts

The population is "counted" every 10 years via the decennial census. For population counts (total number of persons) between decennial censuses, see: Population Estimates

The decennial censuses (conducted every ten years) and the American Community Survey (ACS), a rolling survey designed to replace the decennial census Long Form, offer a wide variety of tabulations based on the questions asked. See the links above for more information about the data compiled in the decennial censuses and, more recently, in the American Community Survey.
