Using Water Demand to Determine Population Estimates and Projections for Kansas

Ann Durkes, Darrell Elkund, Tina Rajala
Component ID: #ti435101772

Abstract

Kansas has developed a unique method for utilizing water use data to determine not only future water use, but also to project population in the state.  Additionally, this method will be used to verify the accuracy of the U.S. Census Bureau’s sub-county population estimates for Kansas.  This method was developed by the Kansas Water Office and approved by the Kansas Water Authority.  Additionally, the projections are being considered by the Kansas Division of the Budget for presentation as the official population projections for Kansas.  The importance of the Kansas method is its accuracy and similarity to the U.S. Census Bureau’s newest methodology for estimating Kansas population.  Also of importance is the fact that the Kansas method was conceived, developed, and implemented exclusive of the U.S. Census Bureau’s method.
