Many types of planning efforts depend on information about the future size and composition of the population. The projections in this report are intended for use in planning. Even under the best of circumstances, however, making projections that accurately indicate future prospects is difficult. Therefore, caution should be exercised when using these or any population projections.

The population projections in this report are the direct product of specific assumptions about future trends infertility, mortality, and migration. These assumptions, in turn, are based on information about past trends in factors which are considered to be the principal determinants of population change. It is the responsibility of the users of this report to evaluate the reasonableness of the assumptions underlying the projections and choose projections appropriate to their needs or employ additional information that may be available to them to arrive at different assumptions.
