The latest estimates of total population for the United States, States, and Puerto Rico Commonwealth – for July 1, 2013 – were released December 30, 2013.

The Census Bureau’s Population Estimates Program (PEP) produces estimates of the population for the United States, its states, counties, cities, and towns, as well as for the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico and its municipios. Demographic components of population change (births, deaths, and migration) are produced at the national, state, and county levels of geography. Additionally, housing unit estimates are produced for the nation, states, and counties.

These estimates are used in federal funding allocations, as survey controls, as denominators for vital rates and per capita time series, and as indicators of recent demographic changes. With each new release of annual estimates, the entire time series of estimates is revised for all years back to the last census.

North Carolina set to overtake Michigan as ninth-largest state

News & Observer

RALEIGH- North Carolina’s population is on pace to pass Michigan’s in the new year, according to a U.S. Census estimate.

That would lift it to ninth in state population rankings, just below Georgia, which itself slipped by Michigan in the estimates a year ago.

North Carolina is among the nation’s fastest-growing states, with a 3 percent jump in population since the last full census, in 2010.

According to the new estimate, there were 9,848,060 people living here as of July 1, up more than 100,000 from the previous year.

That leaves North Carolina with just 48,000 fewer residents than Michigan, which has been hit hard in recent years by the loss of industrial jobs, and is among the slowest-growing states. It added just 13,000 additional residents of its own since 2012.

A chain of adjacent metropolitan areas will become linked: Raleigh-Durham (Triangle Area), Greensboro/Winston-Salem (Piedmont Triad) and Charlotte (Metrolina) along the urban I-85/I-40 corridor.
