Projections - Population and characteristics of the future

Projections tell about the population at future dates.  They illustrate plausible courses of future population changes based on assumptions about future births, deaths and migration.

If you want the most recent information about current population, see Estimates.

Our most recent projections for total population, age, and sex, extend through 2065 for the state of Minnesota and through 2045 for counties and Economic Development Regions. State-level labor force participation projections also extend through 2045. These projections incorporate 2010 Census data. Users should note that updates are forthcoming to the projection files for racial groups.
