Definitions: This indicator represents an estimate of the total number of people residing in respective North Dakota geographic areas.

Data for 2020 through 2021 are Vintage 2021 population estimates. Data for 2010 through 2019 are Vintage 2020 population estimates. Each year the U.S. Census Bureau revises their  estimates back to the most recent Census. Therefore, data presented here may differ from previously published estimates. Figures for 2000 and 2010 represented revised population estimates for July 1, 2000 and July 1, 2010 - not actual Census counts from April 1, 2000 and April 1, 2010.

Data Source: State, County and Planning Regions: U.S. Census Bureau, Population Estimates Program
Tribal Areas: U.S. Census Bureau, Decennial Census and the 5-Year American Community Survey (ACS)

Footnotes: UPDATED - November 2022
GEOGRAPHY - Data reflect place of residence.
DATE - July 1 of reference year. The ACS data reflect a 5-year pooled estimate. That is, the estimate is the result of data being continuously collected nearly every day for five years.
LIMITATIONS - With regard to the ACS data, characteristics for geographic areas experiencing dynamic change due to things such as an environmental catastrophe (e.g., flood) or a plant closing will be mitigated since these estimates cover five calendar years of data. Caution is needed when using the multiyear estimates for estimating year-to-year change in a particular characteristic. This is because four of the five years in the 5-year estimate overlap with the next year’s estimate. Ideally, trend analysis with multiyear estimates should be done using estimates from non-overlapping periods (i.e., 2006-2010 and 2011-2015).
