The primary purpose of the Socioeconomic Modeling Program is the development of projections of population, housing units and employment using the latest decennial or special census as the base. These projections are developed at three levels of geography: Municipal Planning Area (MPA), Regional Analysis Zone (RAZ), and Traffic Analysis Zone (TAZ). MAG transportation and air quality models use these projections to produce traffic and emissions forecasts. In addition, they are used for a wide variety of other regional planning programs.

The staff is involved in the development, calibration and use of socioeconomic models. The program undertakes a variety of modeling projects and analysis of land use and development alternatives.
