The Short Version
If you peek into my magic crystal ball, you can now get population projections for US counties. The 2015 population projections are now on https://www.cubitplanning.com/data/quick-reports. Population projection trends (2015, 2020, 2025, etc.) are now in Radius Reports and Custom Data requests and will be coming soon to Starter Reports.
The Long Version
If you peek into my magic crystal ball, you can now get population projections for US counties.
Background: Most states in the United States have a state data center. State data centers often provide population projections data. At Cubit, we’ve got the population projections for all counties in the US except for Iowa. There’s a boring story about why no Iowa projections; but if you’re an Iowan (is that a real word?) and you want to know the story, email me.
You can get population projection data for counties from Cubit in a couple of ways.
- The Free Way! The 2015 population projection data for all counties in your state are on https://www.cubitplanning.com/data/quick-reports.
- If you need a population projection trend for one or two counties (i.e. 2015, 2020, 2025), these data are now included in Radius Reports and will soon be included in Starter Reports.
- If you need population projection data for all counties in Texas, these data are available via Custom Data Requests. For some states, we even have fun projections by age, gender and ethnicity.
If you gaze into my magic crystal ball, you’d also see Anthony & I working on gathering and including city population projection data. Unfortunately, not every state has a government agency or state data center that provides population projections for cities. So this project will take some time.
Got questions about population projections or about gazing into crystal balls? I’m getting a strong sense that I won’t be able to answer your questions about the latter but I do know a thing or two about population projections. Email me or call me at 1.800.939.2130.
