ABAG Projections
These reports attached below contain excerpts from the Projections publication produced by the Association of Bay Area Governments (ABAG). ABAG's Projections publication contains demographic projections on population, labor force, households, income, and jobs for the Bay Area's region, counties, and cities to the Year 2030/2035. Projections uses a sophisticated modeling system to forecast the demographic and economic growth of the Bay Area Region based on land availability, economic components, and other demographic characteristics. This information allows us to predict what might occur in the future based on current conditions and trends, however, do not represent actual changes. Future growth can be influenced by changes in policies, demographic characteristics, economics, or other influences.  For more information about Projections, or to obtain a copy for all of Santa Clara County or the nine counties of the San Francisco Bay Area, please go to ABAG's website.
