Population Projections

OPB is charged with the responsibility of preparing, maintaining and furnishing official demographic data for the state. These projections are residential based, which provides a foundation for assessing future infrastructure and service needs, such as transportation planning, certificate of need, water planning and other publicly funded projects.

Using the 2010 Census data, year-by-year projections for the state and counties are available through the year 2020, and county projections are also available in five-year increments through 2030. To request a projection, please fill out the form below and email it to Meaghan Ryan at OPB.
