Regional planning for transportation, schools, housing, and health care facilities requires demographic and socioeconomic forecasting to effectively serve constituent populations.
This project supports regional transportation and housing planning for a six-county region in Southern California by producing demographic and socioeconomic forecasts, as well as current and historical trend analysis. Through the course of the project, PRB provides technical assistance to the Southern California Association of Governments (SCAG) staff and their board of directors.
Our work includes analyses and forecasts of demographic and socioeconomic trends affecting population, housing, and employment change in the region. In addition, PRB leads expert panel workshops to solicit input for the regional forecast. We also prepare documents for and give presentations to SCAG working groups and policy committees.
