Today the US Census Bureau released 2022 population estimates for Metropolitan/Micropolitan Statistical Areas, incorporated cities and towns, and subcounty areas. These are annual population estimates based on the last decennial census and not actual 2020 Census counts. The annual Census estimates should not be confused with certified annual population estimates produced by the State Demographer of North Carolina which will be released later this year
The press kit and data from today’s release are available online at https://www.census.gov/newsroom/press-kits/2023/subcounty-metro-micro-estimates.html
The US Census Bureau will release 2020 Census Demographic and Housing Characteristics (DHC) and 2020 Census Profiles in one week on May 25, 2023. The DHC data will provide detailed age, race, sex data from the 2020 Census and household relationship, household size, and more. This data will be available through the Census Bureau data engine – https://data.census.gov/ . The Detailed Demographic and Housing Characteristics (DDHC) file will be released in August providing data for detailed races and tribal groups.
The deadline for challenging 2020 Census counts through the Count Question Resolution and Post Census Group Quarters Review programs is rapidly approaching. Local government and tribal leaders must file their challenges by June 30, 2023 to participate in these free challenge programs. Successful challenges may change 2020 Census counts or population estimates bases for local jurisdictions.
