Reading Survey of Epidemiology and End Results (SEER) U.S. County Population Data with SAS, SPSS, or Stata
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.
These SAS, SPSS, and Stata files were created by Jean Roth to make it easier to use these files.
The corresponding data files and documentation are available at SEER's U.S. Population download page.
To download files in Internet Explorer, right click on them and select "Save Target As...".
