    Posted by Lionel White at 4/10/2015

In particular, the consultants evaluated the methodology used by ACG to forecast population counts, housing units, households, and employment, as well as the methodology used by APS to project the number of K-12 students. In addition to a thorough methodological review, the Consultants provided recommendations for improvements to the forecasting process.
