Population projections are the numerical outcome of particular sets of assumptions about future population
trends. Projected data include total population and demographic characteristics such as age and sex. Assumptions
are made about future fertility, mortaility and migration.
Note that these Missouri projections were done circa 2008 and thus do NOT incorporate the results of the 2010 census. When and if
we may see revised projections that do incorporate those results is not known at this time.
