Data Provided By

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

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

Footnotes: GEOGRAPHY - Data reflect place of residence. DATE - July 1 of reference year for intercensal estimates and April 1 for decennial census numbers. 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). NOTE - Between each decennial census, annual intercensal estimates are revised each year as new administrative records become available.
