What is the Population of Vermont?
In addition to conducting a national census count every ten years, the U.S. Census Bureau produces annual population estimates. These estimates include town population totals and estimates by age (five year age groups) and gender at the county level. In cooperation with the National Center for Health Statistics, estimates by single year of age and gender are produced.
The county and town tables presented here are produced from these annual estimates. The Vermont Department of Health uses the county age-gender estimates, in conjunction with the town total estimates, to produce age-gender estimates for non-county geographies, such as Agency of Human Services and Health Department districts.
Estimates and Census Data
Upon the completion of each national census, the annual estimates for the previous decade are recalculated using the Census counts as endpoints. The estimates for 2001-2009 presented here replace the post-censal estimates published from 2001-2009. Intercensal estimates for 1991-1999 are also available.
2020 and 2021 Vermont Population Estimates
The U.S. Census Bureau recently updated Vermont population estimates data for 2020 and 2021. The 2020 data are estimates and not the final 2020 Census counts. The complete data from the 2020 Census will be released in 2023.
The Population estimates released by the Census Bureau included state and county population by age, race, ethnicity, and gender, as well as county subdivision (town) population totals. As with the estimates for earlier years, these datasets were used as the starting point to also create age/race/ethnicity/gender estimates by Hospital Service Area (HSA) and AHS/VDH District office boundaries.
The 2020-2021 data published on this site on 9/27/2022 has been replaced as of 3/14/2023 to reflect updated data made available from the Census Bureau. This update impacts the age data for the <1 and 1-4 age groups, and (to a much lesser extent) the 15-17 and 18-19 age groups.
