1 Natural change is the difference between the number of births and the number of deaths.
2 Includes alien immigration, refugees, legal emigrants, and net movement of Puerto Ricans and federal civilian citizens.
3 The estimated components of population change will not equal the numerical population change because of a small residual after controlling the national totals. Dash (-) represents zero or rounds to zero.
