Population, Households and Jobs

As part of a cooperative process with the Metropolitan Washington Council of Governments (MWCOG), the Research and Strategic Projects Division produces long-range forecasts of population, employment and housing for Montgomery County and areas within the County. Forecasts are based on analysis of data from a variety of sources, including local development, population and economic trends; models of the Washington, D.C. area population and economic base; and published state and federal statistical resources.
