Vital Signs: Population – by tract (2022) | Last Updated 20 Jun 2023

VITAL SIGNS INDICATOR Population (LU1) FULL MEASURE NAME Population estimates LAST UPDATED February 2023 DESCRIPTION Population is a measurement of the number of residents that live in a given geographical area, be it a neighborhood, city, county or region. DATA SOURCE California Department of Finance: Population and Housing Estimates - Table E-6: County Population Estimates (1960-1970) Table E-4: Population Estimates for Counties and State (1970-2021) Table E-8: Historical Population and Housing Estimates (1990-2010) Table E-5: Population and Housing Estimates (2010-2021) Bay Area Jurisdiction Centroids (2020) - Computed using 2020 US Census TIGER boundaries U.S. Census Bureau: Decennial Census Population Estimates - via Longitudinal Tract Database Spatial Structures in the Social Sciences, Brown University 1970-2020 U.S. Census Bureau: American Community Survey (5-year rolling average; tract) - 2011-2021 Form B01003 Priority Development Areas (Plan Bay Area 2050) - CONTACT INFORMATION METHODOLOGY NOTES (across all datasets for this indicator) All historical data reported for Census geographies (metropolitan areas, county, city and tract) use current legal boundaries and names. A Priority Development Area (PDA) is a locally-designated area with frequent transit service, where a jurisdiction has decided to concentrate most of its housing and jobs growth for development in the foreseeable future. PDA boundaries are current as of December 2022. Population estimates for Bay Area counties and cities are from the California Department of Finance, which are as of January 1st of each year. Population estimates for non-Bay Area regions are from the U.S. Census Bureau. Decennial Census years reflect population as of April 1st of each year whereas population estimates for intercensal estimates are as of July 1st of each year. Population estimates for Bay Area tracts are from the decennial Census (1970-2020) and the American Community Survey (2011-2021 5-year rolling average). Estimates of population density for tracts use gross acres as the denominator. Population estimates for Bay Area tracts and PDAs are from the decennial Census (1970-2020) and the American Community Survey (2011-2021 5-year rolling average). Population estimates for PDAs are allocated from tract-level Census population counts using an area ratio. For example, if a quarter of a Census tract lies with in a PDA, a quarter of its population will be allocated to that PDA. Estimates of population density for PDAs use gross acres as the denominator. Note that the population densities between PDAs reported in previous iterations of Vital Signs are mostly not comparable due to minor differences and an updated set of PDAs (previous iterations reported Plan Bay Area 2040 PDAs, whereas current iterations report Plan Bay Area 2050 PDAs).
