Growth Forecasting


With policy direction from the SCAG Community, Economic and Human Development (CEHD) Policy Committee and working closely with the Technical Working Group (TWG), the California Department of Finance (DOF), subregions, local jurisdictions, CTCs, the public and other major stakeholders, SCAG is responsible for producing socio-economic estimates and projections at multiple geographic levels and in multiple years.

SCAG develops, refines and maintains SCAG’s regional and small area socio-economic forecasting/allocation models. The socio-economic estimates and projections are used for federal and state mandated long-range planning efforts such as the Regional Transportation Plan /Sustainable Communities Strategy (RTP/SCS), the Air Quality Management Plan (AQMP), the Federal Transportation Improvement Program (FTIP), and the Regional Housing Needs Assessment (RHNA).
