Population Projections


To maintain a sound accurate population growth model consistent with sound demographic projection principles for counties and jurisdictions within Arizona and the state as a whole.


To provide reliable unbiased projections of future population growth and a single state repository for current population references enabling sound planning and decision making by government and private entities.

Data Tables


In addition to the baseline projections (the medium series), a low series and a high series were also produced using alternative assumptions.

Sub-county projections were produced in accordance with the official medium series county population projections. Annual projections are available for all incorporated places and unincorporated balances of county in Arizona. For most counties, projections are also available for Indian reservations and census designated places with a Census 2010 population of 500 or more. Population projections and methodology statements for Gila, Maricopa, Pima, and Pinal counties were produced by their respective regional councils of governments. Additional information for these counties can be found in the Projections Related Links .Projections for Gila, Maricopa, and Pinal counties are available for 2013-2040, and the remaining counties have projections for 2013-2050.
