This data layer depicts the 2021 Youth Population. It was developed by Metropolitan and the Natural Resources Research Institute using data from the American Community Survey (ACS). The 2021 Youth Population estimates were compiled at the census tract level. They include individuals aged 0 to 19 years old. The ACS is conducted on an annual basis by the US Census Bureau. It covers housing, demographic, social, and economic topics. The annual results are aggregated into five-year intervals from 2017 to 2021 to produce more accurate estimates. The ACS provides more timely data than the Census for identifying trends in a community. Children and youth population data enables a planner or project manager to identify the number of young residents who may be affected by a program or project.
