Annual Town and County Population for Connecticut
Annual DPH population estimates for Connecticut's counties and towns are calculated for July 1st of each year and are released by October of the following year. These estimates typically constitute the basis for determining birth, death, and other population based rates. In addition to the annual estimates, a discussion of the methodology used to calculate the estimates is included with each release. Data tables containing the population estimates are also available in separate Excel files for each year.
For additional information, please read our Population Statistics Overview.
At this time, town-level population estimates by demographic variables such as age, sex, race and Hispanic ethnicity (ASRH) are not available except for July 1, 2000. For these or other population estimates, please visit our Population Statistics webpage.
Population estimates reported here are considered "post-censal" estimates as they are estimated using the most recent census counts. Estimates for 1996-1999 are post-1990 census, 2000-2009 are post-2000 census, and 2010-2019 are post-2010 census. These estimates are not the same as "inter-censal" estimates. For these or other population estimates, please visit our Population Statistics webpage.
1 Changes in Estimates Methodology: The Vintage 2008 postcensal population estimates reflect three major improvements in the estimates methodology. Improvements include changes in 1) the estimation of net international migration, 2) the incorporation of accepted challenges and special censuses into the national population estimates, and 3) the imputation of the race and Hispanic origin for births. These methodology changes go beyond the extensive methodology changes implemented for the Vintage 2007 estimates. The net impact of the various methodologic changes is a downward shift of the Vintage 2008 postcensal population estimates when compared to those from the Vintage 2007 series; the Vintage 2007 postcensal estimates also reflected a downward shift when compared to the 2006 estimates. See the Census' Documentation for Population Estimates for more information.
