Federal-State Cooperative Program: 1976-1977 Population Estimates (ICPSR 7842)

Principal Investigator(s): United States Department of Commerce. Bureau of the Census


This data collection contains estimates of the total population residing in all counties and county equivalents in the United States for July 1, 1976, and July 1, 1977. Also included are estimates of the components of population change (births, deaths, and net migration) from April 1970 through December 1976. The data were compiled by the Census Bureau with the assistance of designated state agencies in the Federal-State Cooperative Program for Population Estimates. The objective of the program was to develop and publish estimates of the population of counties using standard procedures for data input and methodology. The information included in this dataset was published for each county or county equivalent (e.g., parishes in Louisiana, census divisions in Alaska, and independent cities in Virginia and Missouri) by the Census Bureau.
