Demographics


SANDAG develops annual demographic estimates and long range forecasts in addition to collecting and maintaining census data.

Census

Conducted once every ten years, the census is the most comprehensive source of demographic and economic information available. The census forms the basis for many of SANDAG's databases, including the annual estimates and long range forecasts.

Current Estimates

Each year, SANDAG produces estimates of population and housing characteristics, including population by age and ethnicity, household income, and household size.

Long Range Forecasts

The 2050 Forecast provides population, housing, land use, and employment data for geographic areas within the San Diego region in ten-year increments through 2050.
