B​roward County and Municipal Populations

  • 2010 & 2020 Decennial Census Count - The 2020 Census is one of the decennial censuses conducted by the U.S. Census Bureau. The decennial census is constitutionally mandated and is conducted to determine an official count of the people living in the United States.  The data collected is used to reapportion seats in the House of Representatives, to realign congressional districts, and as a factor in the formulas that distribute hundreds of billions of dollars in federal funds each year.  For more information go to:
  • 2019 ACS Estimate - The American Community Survey (ACS) 5-year Population Estimate is a U.S. Census Bureau product. 60 months of data is collected and used to generate estimates to provide communities with updated information. The survey is sent to a limited number of people in each community; therefore, it is only a representative estimate. For more information go to:  
  • 2020 BEBR Estimate (April 1, 2020) - University of Florida’s Bureau of Economic and Business Research (BEBR) is an official source of Florida statewide demographic data that annually produces estimates and 30-year projections used for state-revenue sharing and other local budgeting purposes.

*BEBR Estimates for April 1, 2020, are based upon the Census 2010 counts and the BEBR population estimates since then. The next set of BEBR county estimates and projections - scheduled for release in 2022 - will incorporate the Census 2020 counts into the methodology.

Note: "-" means that the data source is not collected at a geographic level in which the population can be tabulated for the indicated geographies. Due to this, the ACS Estimate 2019 when totaled has a remainder of 992 that cannot be accurately allocated.​


​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​Population Forecast and Allocation Model (PFAM)

The Broward County and Municipal Population Forecast and Allocation Model (PFAM) distributes countywide population forecasts prepared by the University of Florida Bureau of Economic and Business Research (BEBR) to local municipalities and Traffic Analysis Zones (TAZ). BEBR inputs for PFAM 2017 include population estimates for 2015 and projections for 2020-2045 in 5-year increments. PFAM is updated every three years to reflect local development patterns.


In addition to the output tables listed below, the PFAM report also provides a detailed analysis of local trends in housing and demographics. Topics include: a comparison of local versus statewide population growth, age groups, the labor force, housing demand, household formation, household size, and housing development patterns for new construction. Please note that due to the allocation process, there is a slight difference between totals, TAZ Composite totals and the municipal totals, for the timeframe of 2025 through 2045. See Report for more information.

A link for an Excel workbook will be coming soon.  This single product will contain the below selected tables as individual worksheets. TAZ level data is also available as a shapefile compatible with ArcMap. To obtain these products, please email your request to the Demographics Office.
