As a region, we rely on three key elements to sustain our vitality—the economy, environment, and social equity. Each of these elements is essential to our prosperity.
Representing a broad geographical area, SANDAG conducts various studies to identify demographic and economic challenges to help inform solutions. With accurate information, we can better serve people in this community.
We have found that many demographic trends are changing rapidly and that they have a significant impact on our region’s economy. The data we collect helps us determine where development should occur and how it should be done. We are able to understand trends in population growth, housing prices, traffic congestion, and air quality levels so that we can make informed decisions about transportation improvements throughout the San Diego region.
