Virginia Demographic Update: Babies, Aging, and Migration: Why Is My Population Changing?

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Analysts from the Weldon Cooper Center’s Demographics Research Group will outline several overarching population trends affecting the state, based on data compiled from working with the Census Bureau, Virginia state agencies, and numerous localities and school districts. The panel will address a variety of subjects, including ageing, school enrollment, and migration. The presenters will also leave ample time to answer questions.

The session will help local planners understand the normal birth, death, and migration cycles that cities and counties experience, as well as the shifts in those cycles that demographers are currently tracking. It will also help planners critically evaluate information they hear about demographic trends and understand the relative quality of census products and reports.
