Data Source

Population Division of the U.S. Census Bureau annual county resident population estimates for Michigan from Vintage estimates series.


Estimates are as of July 1st each year for the state of Michigan and all counties. These estimates represent a tabulation from the “blended base” for April 1, 2020 which integrates the results of the 2020 Census, the 2020 Demographic Analysis estimates, and the Vintage 2020 estimates series.

The U.S. Census Bureau annually releases population estimates for five-year age groups at the county level. The Census Bureau limits release of estimates by single year of age at the county level to a “by request only” basis due to concerns about the reliability of these estimates, especially when crossed by additional demographic characteristics. Users of the single-year-of-age county-level population estimates should carefully consider the limited reliability of these estimates.
The new methodology for 2021 and onward includes two additional race categories: "Native Hawaiian and Other Pacific Islander" and "Two or more races." Because of these additional opportunities for more specific racial identification, counts for previous race categories may be lower, and we therefore do not recommend that you make comparisons to previous years’ estimates.
