*** START OF THIS PROJECT GUTENBERG
EBOOK UNITED STATES CENSUS 1630-1991 ***A Few Words About These United States
Population Statistics.
All figures listed below for years before 1992 are
US Census Bureau figures as per the source files.
Where there were an assortment of figures for a
specific year, we averaged them. 1992 was an
estimate. Years after 1992 are our estimates on a
predicted growth rate of 1%, as the average
growth rate of all the averaged figures from 1972-
1992 was exactly 1.00%.
The raw data from which we took these figures is
appended as footnote #2. All dates not given are
presumed to be July 1, as that is the official date
given by the US Census Bureaus, over the years,
except where otherwise noted. Dates are for
footnoted figures only.
Why and How You Should Use These Tables
Given the rapid inflation that took place sometimes
over the past few decades, you might be aware
that if a report said a certain monetary figure was
up 10% during one decade, it was prudent to
check to see if the figures took the inflationary
trends into account to tell you the actual value a
figure in one year might represent would actually
be less than figures which counted more value in
lesser numbers of dollars in the previous decade.Thus you would be wise to consult a table of Price
Indices— such as the file "price10.txt" released in
1993, before your evaluation of such figures is
complete.
The same is true of population figures, which are
going up a certain amount every year, in a very
similar manner to those price index figures, only
not quite as fast, in most cases.
What Started This Report
Very recently, there was a report issued on
education, which stated something on the order of
people in the United States are receiving 10%
more of a certain level of education, than they
were a decade before.
The years and the exact figures have been altered
to protect those responsible from embarrassment.
For example: let us presume the report stated:
Graduation From Grade School was up 5% from
1981 to 1991.
You would think from this report that the average
kid had 5% greater chances of getting a Grade
School Diploma in 91 than in 81. . .but. . .it turns
out that it was just the opposite because the
population was 1.097352 times larger in 91, than it
had been in 1981. . .which is about 10% larger,
thus in a "real education" sense, in the same way
the monetary reports are given in "real dollars" or"constant dollars," education was actually moving
in just the opposite direction, and thus was DOWN
about 5% instead of UP about 5% from 1981 to
1991.
Remember, these were not from years quoted in
the report and the figures were not exactly 5% or
10% respectively, nor the diploma referred to was
not a Grade School Diploma, but they are pretty
close to being exact, in terms of the percentages
and years; much closer than you might expect.
***Here is a footnote explanation of how to be
more exact***
To be exact, one would have to do a demographic
analysis, of the specific portions of the population
of the ages at which such diplomas were
conferred, as it would be irrelevant from a realistic
point of view to measure the population on whole
bases if you were only concerned with people who
were of the age to receive Kindergarten Diplomas
between 1981 and 1991— or whatever ages and a
whatever kind of diploma. Thus these figures are
not as precise as they could be, but still given the
trends of population and education, it is obvious
that a trend in one is not following the direction of
the other. A further look at the US Census figures
averaged below will be sufficient to inform you that
previous generations that were measured had
even greater growth rates than 10%, so that the
number of people getting any specific degrees or
diplomas in the following decades should have
been going up even more.***
In the tables below, the first line shows the Base
Year: or
"The Year In Question" labeled "YEAR: ####" so if
you want a
chart based on 1980 as the base year, you simply
search/find
"YEAR: 1980" to find the relevant portions.
Once you have located the table for "YEAR: ####"
you can see comparisons of that year to any other
year by looking up the year you wish to compare to
in the left column.
The SAMPLE comparison is 1991, presented
below.
You will note a ten year comparison looks like:
year/1991 1991/year Growth%
1981 0.911285 1.097352 0.9031%
This means a 1991 statistic would have to be
shrunk to about 91% of its size to be relevant to a
comparable 1981 statistic.
On the other hand, and 1981 statistic would have
to be enlarged, this time by about 10% to be useful
in comparison to 1991.
1991 is the latest year for which we have "hard
statistics" so a copy of that year is presented firstfor you immediate use, with year back to
colonization following, starting with estimates for
2009 when the United States population should
reach 300 million.
You may note some fluctuations in these figures,
because we used all reports from the major media
and almanacs of the periods our researchers could
find. If you have access to any figures which do not
appear in the footnoted materials, please send
them to us for inclusion in the next edition.
We are also working on a database that will NOT
show fluctuation patterns of this nature, which will
be based on massaged figures presented at later
dates by the Census Bureau. These will be an
example of the difference between the figure we
can expect on an entirely "here-and-now" basis,
and those which we would probably not see about
today's events until a decade or two have passed.
