In addition to the decennial census which counts every resident in the United States (U.S.), the U.S. Census Bureau produces annual estimates of the population which are released in July of each year.  The Population Estimates Program uses administrative data on births, deaths, Federal Tax Returns, Medicare enrollment, and immigration to update the decennial counts and estimate the population of the United States by age, sex, race and ethnicity at national, state, and county levels.
