The Bureau of Labor Market Information and Strategic Initiatives houses Michigan's State Demographer. The State Demographer is Michigan’s representative to the Federal-State Cooperative for Population Estimates (FSCPE) which is the main program at the U.S. Census bureau through which Michigan has input into the estimates for total population and population by county, city, age, gender, and other factors. Additionally the State Demographer is the lead for the State Data Center (SDC) program which is also a cooperative program administered by the U.S. Census bureau through which Michigan has input into the annual population estimates and the decennial census programs. The SDC also maintains a network of stakeholders throughout the State of Michigan that serve to advise the public and assist in data dissemination, collection, and analysis.
Beyond serving as a liaison between state and the U.S. Census Bureau, the State Demographer also assists state, county, and local government officials; non-profits; businesses; and the general public with their needs for demographic data. The State Demographer is available to assist with most data request involving Census data and to make presentations regarding those data across the state. For further information please contact our office or the State Demographer directly.
If you have questions about the program or need specific data, please visit The U.S. Census Bureau, Michigan Census QuickFacts, American Fact Finder, or contact us.
