The DC Office of Planning’s (OP) forecasts displayed below were developed prior to 2015, at a time when the population of the District of Columbia was growing at a significant rate. The forecasts were formally adopted by the Metropolitan Washington Council of Governments in 2016. OP is in the process of updating the forecasts for the District using the most recent Census data; EdScape will be updated thereafter.
