The increasing interest of agricultural economists and statisticians in regional population trends and projections was noted in the introduction to an earlier article on projections of the regional distribution of the population. This was published in Agricultural Economics Research in April 1951 (Vol. III, No. 2, p. 41). Many researchers may find, however, that population projections for particular areas in which they are interested are not available, and that all but the roughest methods of projecting population involve somewhat more man-hours of work than can feasibly be expended. The following article presents two short cuts in the projection method described and used in the earlier article-- short cuts that simplify the computations and considerably reduce the man-hours required.
