Alternate Population Forecasting

The Center for Economic Development and Business Research recognizes the limitations of a standardized model, relying on historical trends, and using Census population estimates. Because of these limitations and the need for policy analysis, economic events, and sub-county level forecasts, the Center redeveloped the population model to all for alternative forecasting.

Communities across the state can engage the Center to develop alternative scenarios: Those customizations include sub-county forecasts and adjusted current population estimates. Further modeling can include increasing migration due to an industry attraction, decreased fertility from increased teen pregnancy awareness, or changes in mortality due to public health policies.
