V.1.5.1 Resident Demographics

Action

Research and document your district’s resident demographics.

Why

Knowing your district’s demographics helps you understand who lives in your district, can impact the types of businesses you attract and activities/initiatives you plan, and will help you see emerging trends.

How

Track information such as age, median household income, occupation, race/ethnicity, gender, and marital status. You can capture some of this information via the Census or you can survey your residents.
