Updated Demographics

Esri's Updated Demographics data includes current-year estimates and five-year projections of U.S. demographic data. Esri develops the annual demographic datasets using a variety of sources, beginning with the latest base, and adding a mixture of administrative records and private sources to capture changes. Categories include the following:

  • Population—Such as age, sex, race, Hispanic origin, labor force, educational attainment, marital status, life-stage and age dependency ratios, civilian labor force, and employment by industry and occupation
  • Households—Such as total households, total family households, and average household size
  • Income—Such as household income, per capita income, income by age, disposable income, net worth, percent of income for mortgage, and wealth index
  • Daytime Population—Covers both workers (civilians employed at work and armed forces personnel) and daytime residents (population under 16 years of age, the unemployed, those not in the labor force, and the civilian employed temporarily absent from work)
  • Housing—Such as home value, tenure (owner/renter), vacant units, and housing affordability index
  • Historical Time Series—For population, households, and housing units

Esri's Updated Demographics data figures are point estimates, representing July 1 of the current and forecast years.
