  • Abstract

    This dataset contains county population estimates for July 1, 1980 through 1985. Estimates are provided by age (18 age groups), sex, and race (White, Black, and other races). These estimates make full use of 1980 Census data on gross in- and out-migration for counties. The data are considered experimental, and replace estimates labeled "provisional." Because the data were originally prepared for the National Cancer Institute (NCI) they are sometimes referred to by that name.

  • These data were prepared by the Bureau of the Census, in fulfillment of a contract with the National Cancer Institute, for the purpose of analyzing indices of cancer mortality. Users are reminded that these data are considered experimental, and that evaluation of these estimates is incomplete at this time. There are special problems related to the estimates for a few states and counties. The Census Bureau requests that all users see Attachment 3 in the codebook for a statement regarding usage of the data.
