Planning produces the official population and household projections for the state and its 24 jurisdictions. Population and household projections are updated every three years with annual revisions as needed. Planning also develops the official public school enrollment projections for the state and all 24 jurisdictions, annually. These demographic projection series contain a wealth of data, analysis, and information useful for planning, policy evaluation, and consideration of alternatives.
