I've been looking at the new Census Vintage 2018 Population Estimates and components of change: National, State, and Puerto Rico Commonwealth Totals Datasets: Population, population change, and estimated components of population change: April 1, 2010 to July 1, 2018
This is the first Excel file available under Datasets on this page: https://www.census.gov/data/tables/time-series/demo/popest/2010s-national-total.html#par_textimage
Can someone please clarify for me the difference between the data in the columns for "CENSUS2010POP" and "ESTIMATESBASE2010"? Does the latter include the CQR changes? Which would be best to use for a statement about "change occurring since the 2010 Census"?
