This site will strive to meet the following objectives:
  • Maintain a centralized website for easy access to timely and relevant information for the Central Florida community in the form of research, reports and data sets
  • Create an ongoing opportunity for exchange of relevant community information regarding data sources and data needs
  • Educate the community regarding availability of data and how to use data effectively and accurately through on-line "help" and community seminars.
  • Serve as a conduit for local datasets to the Inter-University Consortium for Political and Social Research (ICPSR)

Population Projections

1970-2030 Florida County Population Data (Florida Legislature EDR)
1979-2011 Florida Population Estimates (Florida Dept of Health) - Source: Population estimates are provided by the Florida Legislature's Office of Economic and Demographic Research (EDR). Population data shown on CHARTS and EDR's website may not agree, since EDR revises its population estimates twice a year and CHARTS population data are not revised as often.  Age-group data is provided by EDR in 5-year intervals (e.g. 0-4, 5-9, 10-14 etc.). Individual year of age populations are calculated by dividing the 5-year totals by 5.
