Our fall conference will again be replaced with a series of webinars, but we have some great topics in the lineup. These include 2020 Decennial Census challenges and guidance on tools to access the new 2020 redistricting data.


Additional details on the experimental data product that will replace the 2020 American Community Survey 1-Year data are now available. A limited number of tables for the U.S. and states will be made available by November 30, 2021.


New 2020 Census data shows that the Tennessee is more diverse than it was ten year ago. Both changing demographics and new processing methods used by the Census Bureau are behind the change. We took a look at the new data and explain the trends.


New population totals for Tennessee counties and cities has been one of the most anticipated numbers to come out of the 2020 Census. We combined the new information with data from 2000 and 2010 to produce population totals and change for the twenty-year period.


On July 29th, the Census Bureau announced that disruptions in the first half of the 2020 to American Community Survey operations had significantly impacted the statistical reliability of some products and announced several product cancellations.


By August 16, 2021, population data from the 2020 Census for the state’s counties and municipalities will be released. Because the data will require processing before it can be viewed, we compiled the basic information needed to plan for the release, access it and extract the new data.


Population projections for Tennessee’s 345 cities and towns aren’t readily available. So we leveraged the Boyd Center’s county-level population projections and Census Bureau estimates to create a simple approach that can be replicated by communities across the state.


Tennessee’s resident population grew to 6,910,840 over the past decade according to new 2020 Census results. The 8.9% growth rate was slower than the two previous decades but was enough to move the state up one spot to become the nations 16th most populous.


The first look at Tennessee’s 2020 Census results is just days away with the state-level apportionment counts planned for release by April 30th and more detailed information coming in August, 2021.
