Abstract: This dataset contains county-level data for total population and net migration by age, sex, and color, supplied by John Gardner and William Cohen, Center for Urban Studies, The University of Chicago. The data are available for total population, Negroes, and other races. For 1930 and 1940, the population is tabulated in five-year intervals until age thirty-four and in ten-year intervals thereafter. For 1950, the numbers of whites and non-whites are given by sex and age in five-year intervals. There are a total of 3,111 counties, including a few aggregated spatial units to accommodate mergers and divisions. Extensive error checks were performed on the data by the original researchers. There are approximately 180,000 card-image equivalents.
