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.
