Forecasts & Projections
ABAG is responsible for forecasting changes to the Bay Area population and economy to help local governments prepare for an ever-changing environment. Plan Bay Area 2050 was adopted by the ABAG Executive Board and the Metropolitan Transportation Commission on October 21, 2021, and the Plan Bay Area 2050 Growth Pattern shows the plan’s projected household and job growth for the region looking out to 2050.
The Projections 2040 website remains available but reflects out-of-date data based upon Plan Bay Area 2040, which was superseded by Plan Bay Area 2050 upon adoption in October 2021. Please refer to the growth pattern link above for official projections at the county and sub-county levels based upon the current regional plan, Plan Bay Area 2050.
