Census Bureau Releases State Estimates of Voting-Age Population

The U.S. Census Bureau recently released July 1, 2007, estimates of the
voting-age population in each state. The Census Bureau is required by law
to produce these estimates annually for the Federal Election Commission.

The estimates show the total number of residents in each state, the
total population age 18 and older, and the percentage of the total
population 18 and older. They do not reflect citizenship status or voting
eligibility. According to the estimates, California had the largest adult
population, at 27.2 million, while Vermont had the highest percentage adult
population, at 78.9 percent. (In the District of Columbia, the
corresponding percentage was 80.7 percent.) There were 227.7 million U.S.
residents 18 and older, comprising 75.5 percent of the total population.

This is one in a series of population estimates that will be released
over the next several months. In addition to this set, estimates will be
provided for the total population of counties, incorporated cities and
metro areas, as well as the population of the nation, states, and counties
by age, sex, race and Hispanic origin.
