Town Population with Demographics
Population estimates by age, sex, race and Hispanic ethnicity (ASRH) are invaluable for the estimation of rates of health and illness in Connecticut’s towns and counties. Unfortunately, the annual inter-censal town population estimates do not include the ASRH components and the population change between April 1 and July 1 is substantial enough to prohibit the direct substitution of demographic counts.
To address this, Connecticut DPH developed July 1, 2000 and July 1, 2010 town-ASRH estimates that should be used in place of the decennial census counts for year-to-year comparisons. These town-level datasets provide population estimates that are consistent with the official mid-year state and town estimates of the population for July 1, 2000 and July 1, 2010 and provide a consistent reference point with the annual inter-censal estimates for 1991-1999 and 2001-2009. These estimates also allow rates of health and illness to be calculated at the town and county level using the mid-year 2000 population rather than the lower population estimate from the Census in April.
Estimates of the resident population of Connecticut as of July 1 are tabulated by town
(also known as MCDs), five-year age group (0-4, 5-9, 10-14 … 85 years and over), sex,
and bridged-race/ethnicity category (White, Black, Am.Indian, Asian/PI, Hispanic/Latino).
