Socioeconomic Data

As part of the TPO's regional transportation planning process, socioeconomic data and forecast are developed by area local governments and RRPDC staff at a relatively small geographic level (i.e., traffic analysis zones) for use in various VDOT, TPO and local plan and study activities.  Socioeconomic data/forecasts provides input for travel demand models, EIS, corridor studies, air quality conformity analysis, transit studies, etc., and is used to respond to information requests for market and other demographic studies.  The Socioeconomic Data Report for Base Year 2012 and Projection Year 2040 was recommended and approved by the TPO Board April 2, 2015 meeting.

 

In addition to the Socioeconomic Data Report for Base Year 2012 and Projection Year 2040, staff prepared a Socioeconomic Analysis Report.  In this report, 2012 and 2040 data is analyzed to illustrate the regional picture of the Richmond Region by looking at current regional density patterns and how this may affect future growth into 2040.  Additionally, historical regional trends are referenced followed by the analysis of urban, suburban, and rural areas.  Throughout the report regional development centers are identified as geographical areas in which there is a high concentration of population and/or employment.  The intent of this report is to provide a foundation in opportunities for regional planning.
 

The RRPDC works with area local governments to coordinate the development of socioeconomic data and forecasts.  Data prepared by RRPDC staff and area local governments is as follows:

  • Total population

  • Group quarters population

  • Single and multi-family population

  • Total households

  • Total housing units

  • Single and multi-family housing units

  • Total employment

  • Retail employment

  • Total students
