How can I participate in the forecast program?
The Population Research Centeris dedicated to public involvement in the forecasting process. To this end, we have created lists of contacts in local city and county governments and special districts and a sign-up process to add or correct information for those officials and for the general public who would like to receive notices of meetings, etc..
Quick link to sign up for the mailing list: click here.
• For Local Governments:
Local governments and special districts will be notified by the Population Research Center of preliminary, proposed, and final forecasts. If the PRC has a valid email address notices will be sent electronically, otherwise notices will be sent by US mail.
Please double-check the contact information PRC has for your locality, To view city contact Information click here (emails are not included on the list for security). If you need to add, update or complete contact information please sign up here.
