Survey of Epidemiology and End Results (SEER) U.S. State and County Population Data

The Survey of Epidemiology and End Results (SEER) created an excellent resource for recent 1969-on U.S. population at the level of the state or county and by age, race, sex, and more recently Hispanic origin.

The national and state SAS, Stata, and CSV files were created by Jean Roth to make these files a bit easier to use.

The corresponding data files, data dictionary, and other documentation are available from SEER.

Adjusted files account for large population gains and losses in counties affected by intense 2005 Hurricanes Katrina and Rita. The states with adjusted population estimates are Alabama, Mississippi, Louisiana, and Texas.

Updates and changes.

For pre-1969 county data the Census provides county population estimates for 1900, 1910, ... , 1990.

The University of Virginia Library's Geostat Center created electronic versions of the 1944-on County and City Data Books. These have county population estimates for 1930, 1940, 1943, 1950, 1960.

Paper sources for pre-1969 data include Census Report P25-427 "Estimates of the population of counties and metropolitan areas, July 1, 1966",and
