Integrated Growth Forecast
With policy direction from the SCAG Community, Economic and Human Development (CEHD) Policy Committee and working closely with the Plans and Programs Technical Advisory Committee (P&P TAC), the California Department of Finance (DOF), subregions, local jurisdictions, CTCs, the public and other major stakeholders, the Forecasting Section of the Community Development Division is responsible for producing socio-economic estimates and projections at multiple geographic levels and in multiple years.
The Forecasting Section develops, refines and maintains SCAG's regional and small area socio-economic forecasting/allocation models. The socio-economic estimates and projections are used by for federal and state mandated long-range planning efforts such as the Regional Transportation Plan (RTP), the Air Quality Management Plan (AQMP), the Regional Transportation Improvement Program (RTIP), and the Regional Housing Needs Assessment (RHNA).
The Southern California Association of Governments has produced two sets of transportation analysis zones (TAZ) for the 2012-2035 Regional Transportation Plan. We have also produced socioeconomic data for the two zone systems. The more aggregate level is represented by 4,109 zones (Tier 1) across the SCAG region and the more detailed level by 11,267 TAZs (Tier 2).
