2012-13 Graduate School Public Lectures: Dowell Myers
Demographic data—census, surveys, and projections—are powerful tools in understanding trends in housing, working, education, taxpaying, voting, and immigration. How will the aging of the baby boom generation affect housing prices? How deep and abiding are the recent increases in multifamily and multigenerational households? How can voters see changes ahead in order to make the right decisions about the future? Dowell Myers explores these issues in Demographic Forces Shaping Trend Reversals in the 21st Century City: Meeting the Challenge of Seeing Ahead for Better Decisions Today.
