As an alternative, we constructed a set of prediction intervals based solely on data for Florida counties. Using the distribution of errors for projections with launch years 1980, 1985, and 1990, we calculated two-thirds prediction intervals for 5-, 10-, and 15-year horizons through target year 1995. We applied these intervals to projections with launch years 1995, 2000, and 2005 and counted the number of counties whose populations fell within the intervals in target years 2000, 2005, and 2010.

We can be more confident in the results for counties, but only when those results are aggregated. Average errors are much more predictable than errors for individual places. 3. With respect to bias, however, we cannot make any predictions. There is simply no way to know in advance whether a given set of projections will turn out to be predominantly too high or too low. Results for individual counties, of course, are much less predictable than results based on averages. Given this uncertainty, data users should consider several possible alternatives rather than a single scenario when using county projections for decision-making purposes.

The second approach provides explicit measures of this uncertainty. County Projections Since the mid-1980s, BEBR’s low and high county projections have been based on an analysis of population forecast errors for a sample of 2,971 counties in the United States (Smith 1987). These errors were drawn from projections covering several combinations of launch year and projection horizon between 1950 and 1980. Using this data set, BEBR calculated the 67th largest absolute percent error for counties in several population size and/or growth rate categories and used those errors to construct low and high projections for each county.
