U.S. Census Population Estimates - County Level
The U.S. Census Population Estimates provide county-level, annual population estimates by race and ethnicity. The data come from the U.S. Census Population Estimates. These datasets delineate county-level populations by both race and ethnicity. For both decades, the ethnicity categories are Hispanic and non-Hispanic.
The two decades are provided separately because racial categories change between the two decades. For the 1990s, the racial categories are white, black, American Indian, and Asian and Pacific islander. For the 2000s, the racial categories are white, black, American Indian, Asian, native Hawaiian, Pacific islander and two or more races. Counts of the five main racial categories claimed by all individuals that fall into the two or more races categories are also provided.
