Population & Employment Forecast

The Forecast Update does not change the County-wide forecast.  The county-wide forecast was adopted in 2012 and extends to the forecast year 2040.

TRPC’s employment forecast was revised in 2012 to take into account the effects of the recession, where the region – for the first time since the early 1980s – experienced a decrease in total employment. After several years of essentially flat employment, the economic rebound began in 2012. TRPC forecasts employment in over 20 employment sectors.
