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...".

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
