2 County Population and Labor Force Projections: New Jersey, 2004 to 2014 NJSDC Network Meeting June 6, 2007

3 County Projections Procedures Apply state fertility and mortality rates by age-race- sex to individual counties. Project net migration based on demand and supply of county labor force. Distribute county net total migration to individual age-race-sex cohorts according to recent pattern. Control sum of 21 counties to state totals at each step.

4 Population Projections for New Jersey Overview New Jerseys population growth will continue to lag behind the nation as a whole. Rate of Population Growth:

5 County Population: 2004 and 2014 Population is projected to increase in all counties, except Cape May, from 2004 to 2014.

6 Population Growth by Region The central and coastal regions will continue to lead the states population growth from 2004 to The rate of population growth in the northern region is projected to lag behind average between 2004 and 2014.

8 Population Growth by Region The rural northwestern counties will have substantial population growth from their small population bases. Coastal regions Ocean County is projected to be the fastest growing county in New Jersey, followed by Gloucester County in the southern region.

10 Population Projections by county Bergen County will continue to be the states most populous county. By 2014, Middlesex will replace Essex as the states second most populous county; while Morris (ranked 10th in 2004) and Passaic (ranked 9th in 2004) will exchange their population rankings in the state.

The sex ratio ranges from Ocean Countys 91.1 to Cumberland Countys in the year 2014.

23 Labor Force Projections for New Jersey Overview Growth of Population and Labor Force: New Jersey, New Jerseys civilian labor force is projected to grow faster than its population from 2004 to 2014.

24 Labor Force Projections by County Labor force is projected to increase in every county from 2004 to 2014.

25 Labor Force Projections by County Labor Force in Ocean and Gloucester counties is projected to grow faster than other counties during the period. Parallel to the population growth pattern, the coastal region will continue to lead the states labor force growth while growth in the northern and southern regions is projected to accelerate.

32 County Labor Force Projections by Hispanic origin Approximately 70% of New Jerseys Hispanic labor force were concentrated in six counties in 2004: Hudson, Passaic, Bergen, Union, Middlesex and Essex.
