CENSUS 2000: GROWING TOGETHER OR APART?

U.S and California Population Trends and their Implications for Cities and Metropolitan Areas

On November 1, 2002, the Department of City and Regional Planning at the University of California at Berkeley will host a one day conference on policy implications for local and metropolitan governments of the population trends revealed by the 2000 Census.

The 2000 Census has reaffirmed many of the basic trends of earlier research in the 1990's: the atomization of the family, the growth of minority populations and new immigrants, along with the population shift from the Northeast and Midwest to the South and West. Yet within these broad national trends are substantial variations by region, and between and within metropolitan areas. These differences have important implications for planning, urban policy, regional and economic development as well as for housing and community welfare agendas at the local and state level.

Presentations will include William Frey on regional and metropolitan growth trends, Robert Lang on the rise of the "boomburbs," Paul Jargowsky on sprawl and poverty, Isabel Sawhill on children and families, Hans Johnson on the regions in California, Dowell Myers on immigration, Peter Schrag on demographics and politics, and Ness Sandoval on segregation and poverty.
