The following section highlights some of the national trends that might be evident in your own county Data SnapShot Report. National trends section 02
  9. 9. 9 Our population is aging The proportion of our population that is elderly (65 years or older) will increase significantly. The percentage of elderly Americans that is elderly will increase from 12 percent of the total population in 2000 to 21 percent in 2050. National trends section 02

  12. 12. 12 Urban sprawl will continue and we will see the growth of mega-regions Over the last few decades, our metropolitan regions have sprawled outward, and this trend will likely continue. As the population continues to concentrate in mega-regions and coastal areas, once-significant industrial cities will continue to shrink. National trends section 02
  13. 13. 13 Growth in non-metro regions will be uneven Nearly 15 percent of the U.S. population (about 46 million in 2013) live in non-metropolitan counties. While over 1,200 non-metro counties have lost population since 2010, over 700 non- metropolitan counties have gained population. National trends section 02 700 non-metropolitan counties have gained population 1,200 non-metropolitan counties have lost population Since 2010…
  14. 14. 14 Manufacturing in the U.S. is going through a resurgence Major advances are taking place in energy, robotics, materials and applied information technology. Growing productivity in the manufacturing sector translates into higher incomes. In 2013, the average manufacturing worker earned over $77,000. National trends section 02 After decades of decline, the prospects of manufacturing in the United States have begun to turn around.
  15. 15. 15 The growth of middle-skill jobs Significant job growth is taking place in middle-skill jobs.

  16. 16. How the Data Snapshot report accelerates your strategy a closer look
  17. 17. 17 How a Data SnapShot Report can accelerate your strategy A Data SnapShot Report sets the stage for deeper conversations about how your county can prosper in the decades ahead. Basic, practical understandings of your population and economy can move your conversations to a new level. Rather than getting lost in the sea of statistics or, worse yet, opinions not grounded in reality, Data SnapShot Reports point you towards promising pathways. A closer look section 03 Economic development takes place when leaders come together to collaborate on an investment strategy. A Data SnapShot Report makes the formation of these collaborations easier. Equally important, a Data SnapShot Report will help your county develop a new narrative about its future.
