2015 U.S. Esri Demographic data is now available!

The 2015/2020 U.S. Esri Updated Demographic data is now available across the ArcGIS platform, and it reveals some very interesting trends about population growth, aging, diversity, housing and more.

  • The 2015 U.S. population is 318,536,439, an increase of 3.2% since 2010.
  • Population growth in the South continues to outpace growth in the rest of the US, 4.6% since 2010, compared to 3.8% in the West, 1.5% in the Northeast and 1.4% in the Midwest.
  • The country is becoming more diverse. The Hispanic population now accounts for 17.6% of the total population and is expected to increase to 19% by 2020. The Diversity Index (the likelihood that two persons, chosen at random from the same area, belong to different race or ethnic groups) based on counts from Census 2010 for the United States is 60.6. The Diversity Index based on 2015 updates stands at 63, and it is expected to rise to 65.3 in 2020.
