Earlier today EMSI went live with an update that included the addition of recently released Census 2010 data in the demographics section of Analyst. Here are the key details:

  • EMSI has previously used the Census’ annual population estimates, 2001-2010.

  • Census recently released the actual Census 2010 local population counts for all states. We use Census 2010 Summary File 1. This includes information on total population, including age, gender, race/ethnicity.

  • The Census Bureau’s 2001-09 estimates have not yet been adjusted to take into account Census 2010. Until they are, EMSI is doing its own adjustment of 2001-2009 annual estimates to account for the new 2010 numbers.

If you have any questions about this or other data, feel free to contact us.
