Census Bureau Releases Final Metro Area and City Population Estimates Before Census 2000 Figures Are Released

The Commerce Department's Census Bureau today released 1999 population estimates for the nation's metropolitan areas and their central cities and for incorporated places and minor civil divisions.

The estimates are based on 1990 census data and updated by using administrative records for the period 1990-1999. The new estimates are not Census 2000 population counts. The first Census 2000 results will be released in late December.

Metro area estimates include time series from 1990-99, and rankings by population size in 1999 and by percent change from 1990 to 1999 and 1998 to 1999.

Incorporated places comprise cities, towns, villages and boroughs. Minor civil divisions are primarily towns and townships.

Annual time series from 1990-99 are shown for each area. Other tables include cities of 100,000 population or more ranked nationally by their 1999 population and percent growth from 1990 to 1999. Cities of 10,000 population or more are ranked within each state.
