Demographic trends in U.S. counties


Screenshot of the "Demographic trends in United States counties" tool.The future of the nation’s forests, the communities embedded in them and the ecosystem services they provide depends on the ability to anticipate change and respond appropriately to it. This is a particular concern for resource managers, planners and policy-makers because natural resources respond to change slowly and benefit from long-range planning and management.

This new database provides a powerful tool for advancing integrated research and planning by giving ready access to a wealth of recent information on demographic change, national forests and the social and economic characteristics for each U.S. county.
