The population data for 2001-2010, along with rates affected by the population data,
has been updated on Florida CHARTS. Following a census, it is customary to revise
population projections for the intercensal years based on information from the latest
census. Revising the population data from what was predicted to actual estimates
ensures accurate accounting of the racial, ethnic, and gender distribution of the
population. These changes affect the population data and rates calculated for your
Age-group data is available in 5-year intervals (e.g. 0-4, 5-9, 10-14 etc.). Individual
year of age populations are calculated by dividing the 5-year totals by 5. Data
for the <1 population are derived from birth and infant death data, instead of dividing
the 0-4 population by 5. Data for the 1-4 population are derived by subtracting
the <1 population based on birth and infant death data from the 0-4 population.
The difference is then divided by 4 to produce estimates for individuals age 1,
2, 3, and 4. Where totals do not sum, it is due to rounding
