A broad range of population forecasts and historic trends indicate that significant growth is on the horizon for California. Although population growth by geographic regions, racial/ethic groups, and age will vary, growth is a consistent trend. Naturally, growth in population implies growth in households and demand for housing units. It is imperative that any evaluation of regional growth trends to aid transportation infrastructure planning must look at housing patterns to grasp the complete picture.
