Vermont Population Estimates

In addition to the decennial Census counts, the U.S. Census Bureau produces annual population estimates each year following the Census.  These estimates include town population totals, and estimates by age (5 year age groups) and gender at the county level.  In cooperation with the National Center for Health Statistics (NCHS), estimates by single year of age and gender are produced. 

The county and town tables presented here are produced directly from these annual Census/NCHS estimates.  VDH uses the county age-gender estimates in conjunction with the town total estimates to produce age-gender estimates for non-county geographies, such as Agency of Human Services and Vermont Department of Health districts.

Intercensal Estimates

Upon the completion of each decennial census, the annual estimates for the previous decade are recalculated, using the Census counts as endpoints.  The estimates for 2001-2009 presented here replace the post-censal estimates published from 2001-2009.  Intercensal estimates for 1991-1999 are also available.

More Population & Demographic Data

Population estimates published here for years 2001 and later were produced by the U.S. Bureau of the Census in cooperation with the National Center for Health Statistics (NCHS). Visit the following sites for more information about the Census Bureau’s estimate methodology, and for information about the Cooperative estimates program with NCHS.

More detailed demographic data (such as income, education, etc.) on the Vermont population is also available from the Census Bureau through the American Community Survey (ACS).  The ACS is an ongoing survey of the U.S. population which replaces the long form Census questionnaire.  To learn more about the ACS.
