Regional Markets

Although the American population is growing slowly, there is still a great deal of demographic change going on at the regional, state, metropolitan, and county levels. Demographic change varies both by geography and over time; this book tackles each of these variables, projecting population change for a variety of geographic areas in two time frames: the ten-year period between 1990 and 2000 and the five-year period between 1998 and 2003. Exter, a demographer and expert on regional growth and decline, uses Census Bureau estimates for 1990 and his own estimates for 1998 to make projections for 2000 and 2003. These time frames give the reader a feel for the demographic trends important in business. Topics include population by race and age, migration, and households by type, age, race, and income. Information is provided in tables, with a few charts at the beginning of the sections and rankings appropriate to the topic. Brief descriptive analysis of the data accompanies the charts. A good choice for trend analysis of larger counties, metropolitan statistical areas, states, and regions and for short-term demographic projections; recommended for large public and academic libraries or specialized business or statistics collections.
