Source: Population estimates are provided by the Department of Health, Office of
Health Statistics and Assessment in consultation with the Florida Legislature's
Office of Economic and Demographic Research (EDR). 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 community.
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
