Population Projections for 2020 to 2050 Released

In an ongoing collaboration with the Center for Rural Pennsylvania, the Pennsylvania State Data Center (PaSDC) has produced population projections for Pennsylvania for the state and its counties, categorized by age and sex, extending through the year 2050.

PaSDC utilized a cohort-component model consistent with 47 other states’ methodologies to generate for each five-year interval from 2020 to 2050. The projections show that the state’s population is on track to grow by just over 200,000 (+1.6%) from 2020 to 2050.

To access an overview of the projections data along with visuals exploring the projections, please visit our latest brief, Pennsylvania Population Projections: 2020 to 2050.

For more highlights on these projections, their policy implications, and the press conference for their release, please visit: https://www.rural.pa.gov/data/population-projections.
