Monitoring changes in the size, movement and characteristics of population is an important barometer of well-being. A region can't thrive without people choosing to live there either by the happenstance of birth and opting to stay, or by choosing to relocate from somewhere else.
The U.S. Census Bureau is the primary source of demographic data in the United States. The primary surveys which include data at the sub-state level are the American Community Survey, the Decennial Census and the population estimates and projections program.
The 2010 Census data products meet a variety of data needs for different segments of the data user community.
To assist with redistricting efforts, the Kentucky State Data Center has produced Excel workbooks with block level data for each county in Kentucky. The data include Total Population and Population 18 and Over by Race and Hispanic/Not Hispanic. Also included are Occupied and Vacant Housing Unit totals.
