Regional Growth Forecast


For more information about this plan, contact Heather by email or phone: (831) 264-5086

The regional growth forecast projects the region's population, housing and employment. The growth forecast is used to support regional planning efforts such as the Regional Travel Demand Model and the Metropolitan Transportation Plan as well as local planning such as the development of General Plans and project review. However, use of the forecast by local land-use planning agencies is elective.

Developing population, housing and employment forecast estimates for the Monterey Bay region consists of two distinct stages. The first stage is the identification of regional and county level forecast figures through the use of widely accepted forecasting methodologies. The second stage is the disaggregation of county-level forecast numbers to the jurisdictional level.

The 2018 Regional Growth Forecast was adopted at the AMBAG Board of Directors Meeting on June 13, 2018. 

The 2022 Regional Growth Forecast is currently in progress.
