County-Specific Net Migration by Five-Year Age Groups, Hispanic Origin, Race, and Sex, 1990-2000: [United States] (ICPSR 4171)

Principal Investigator(s):


This data collection provides net migration estimates by five-year age groups, Hispanic origin, race, and sex for counties of the United States from 1990 to 2000. These estimates were derived from United States census data from 1990 to 2000, and from vital statistics collected by the National Center for Health Statistics (NCHS) for years 1990 through 1999 using the vital statistics (VS) method. The dataset contains the state and county Federal Information Processing Standards (FIPS) codes that uniquely identify counties within a state. Several data categories are presented in the collection. Vital statistics data tabulate births by sex, race, and Hispanic origin for the periods 1990-1994 and 1995-1999, and deaths by sex, race, Hispanic origin, and age groups for the period 1990-2000. The enumerated and adjusted 1990 and 2000 population categories offer population totals by sex, Hispanic origin, age groups, and race. The expected populations in 2000 are available with totals by sex, race, Hispanic origin, and age groups. Net migration estimates and net migration rates for each category also are included.
