US Census State Population Estimate data

Data source

The US Census Bureau publishes state-level resident population estimates for each decadal survey as well as intercensus estimates for intervening years. According to the detailed methodology published on the Census website, the estimates are based on a demographic cohort method that accounts for births, deaths, and migration on top of the base population estimate from the decadal survey. The Census Bureau has reported accuracies to about 3% at the county level.

In addition to the state-level data, the table includes estimates for the national population as well as geographic regions.
