US, State Population Update for 2016

On December 19, 2016 the US Census Bureau released its US national and state population estimates for July 1, 2016.  On December 26, 2016 updated its US and state population data as follows:
  • We updated 2010-2016 population data for US and states using data from US Census Bureau Population Estimates: vintage 2016 in file nst-est2016-01.xlsx.
  • We projected 2017 thru 2021 for US and the states assuming population rate change for 2015-16.
  • We updated 2017 thru 2021 for US only using data from US Census Bureau 2014 National Population Projections in file NP2014-T1.xls. uses population data in computing per capita spending and revenue data. You can see per capita spending data in a chart here, and in a table of spending here.

You can check the data update schedule here.
