A new database report from the Urban Institute
maps the impact of births, deaths and migration on population trends for every county in the U.S. in 2020 and 2030, showing which areas should expect to grow and which should expect population loss. Titled "Mapping America's Futures," the report projects the racial and age breakdown of U.S. counties and metro areas in 2030 based on current demographic trends.
"We can already see that the population is aging and becoming more diverse, but how will those trends play out at the local and regional levels?" the accompanying article asks. "And what if, in the future, we live longer or have more babies? How would those trends affect the population in different cities and states?"
Urban Institute's model projects that Greater Cincinnati's population will grow 11.22 percent between 2010 and 2030, from 2,068,893
. Our population will get slightly more diverse, as those categorized as Hispanic and Other (compared to White and Black) are projected to become 12 percent of the local population in 2030 vs. the 2010 level of 5.3 percent. As with the country as a whole, Cincinnati is projected to become older — although the largest age group will continue to be those 20-49.
