The Federal-State Cooperative for Population Projections (FSCPP) provides a means for state demographers and experts at the U.S. Census Bureau to learn from each other with the objective of improving projections, as the methods employed to project population vary substantially across the States.
The FSCPP recently completed a survey of state demographers regarding their population projections. In this webinar the officers of the FSCPP will present information about state projections including why they are needed, the geographic areas covered, methods and inputs used, types of data that are produced, and how the projections are distributed. The webinar will include case studies of challenges and uses of state population projections, and will conclude with a demonstration of ways state population projection data and supporting information can be accessed.
