Resilience 2050 White Paper - Socioeconomic Forecasting Planning for regional transportation services requires an understanding of current and forecast demographic and socioeconomic characteristics across geography and time. A region's transportation system influences its growth and development, while the type and location of growth in turn influence travel choices. The Cooperative Forecasting Group (CFG), a subcommittee of the BRTB, develops a set of population, household and employment estimates and forecasts at the jurisdiction and small area levels of geography for transportation planning purposes. The most recent forecasts, Round 10, were endorsed by the BRTB in July 2022. The forecasts inform the region’s travel demand modeling efforts, and are a key component in the development of Resilience 2050.  This white paper provides details on the forecasting process, the Round 10 forecasts, and the technical tools that are utilized to analyze and predict travel behavior and choices.
