Geographic Area Covered: DVRPC’s nine-county region, including Burlington, Camden, Gloucester, and Mercer counties in New Jersey, and Bucks, Chester, Delaware, Montgomery, and Philadelphia counties in Pennsylvania.

Abstract: This report presents the Delaware Valley Regional Planning Commission’s (DVRPC’s) adopted 2050 county- and municipal-level population and employment forecasts and describes the method used to develop them. Population and employment forecasts are a critical component of long-range land use and transportation planning. As a part of DVRPC’s long-range planning activities, the Commission is required to maintain forecasts with at least a 20-year horizon, or to the horizon year of the long-range plan. DVRPC last adopted forecasts through the year 2045 in 2016. Referenced as the 2050 v1.0 forecasts, as the first to use that horizon year, the population and employment totals were formally adopted by the DVRPC Board on June 24, 2021, and serve as the basis for DVRPC planning and travel modeling activities.

Data from the 2050 v1.0 forecasts are visualized and downloadable at various geography levels via the following resources:
