Bridged-Race Population Estimates - NCHS
Data type

The National Center for Health Statistics (NCHS) releases bridged-race population estimates for United States residents in order to calculate birth and death rates. These estimates are created by bridging the 31 race categories used in the 2000 and the 2010 censuses to the four race categories used previously.

This release includes US resident population estimates at the county level as of April 1, 2010. Estimates are by single-year age groups for ages 1 to 85+, bridged-race category, Hispanic origin, and sex.
