(1) The Census Bureau has not yet reported an analysis of surname frequencies for the 2000 census. The 2000 population estimates above are calculated from 1990 % frequencies using 2000 U.S. population (281,421,906). The 1990 data based on sampling (not exact count). Population estimate for the highest ranked .001% and .003% based on calculation; all others listed as < based on their rank. Insufficient data to provide a reasonable estimate for the < 0.001% names. Calculation example using Kinney:   .00013 x 281,421,906 = 36,584.8478; rounded off to 36,600.

U.S. telephone listings (search on Ancestry.com) for names not on the 1990 source list: MacKinney 123, MacKenna 85, MacKeeney 24; other names 1 or zero.

(2) Apparently the sampling was too small to include McKeeney, McKinne, all MacK---, and any O'K-- variations.

====|
Kenny surname only:
The below information was provided by William L. Kenny from "Kenny families around the world" printed in 1988 by Halbertís inc. He found this a disappointing purchase since little information was actually given (the publication is chiefly a catalogue of names and addresses, which have been taken from phone books).
Country Estimated Population (1988)
Gt. Britain 15,442
Northern Ireland 803
Canada 5,677
United States 17,261
Australia 6,956
