2024 Southern California Annual Demographic Workshop Web Banner

Sept. 24 
9 a.m. 
In Person & Online 

Registration is now open for the 2024 Southern California Demographic Workshop, presented by SCAG and the Sol Price School of Public Policy at the University of Southern California at SCAG’s main office in Downtown Los Angeles, with an online attendance option, on Sept. 24. 2024. This is the 35th annual edition of the Demographic Workshop.

Navigating the New Growth Reality 

For a century, fast growth defined Southern California as a magnet for migrants. However, population growth has slowed in the past decade, consistent with national and global trends—creating long-term effects for the region’s economic and cultural landscapes.  

Register today for SCAG’s 2024 Southern California Demographic Workshop to gather with local leaders, elected officials and regional demographic experts to discuss how changing population growth affects regional planning—from accommodating development to improving quality of life and cultivating the economy. Expert insights at the 2024 Demographic Workshop will include region-specific details from American Community Survey data and other demographic signals crucial to informed and effective planning decisions.
