  • Education of Towns | Northern Virginia Regional Commission

    Education of Towns About the Towns Data There are 14 incorporated towns in Northern Virginia. The demographic data on the people of incorporated towns is sourced from the U.S. Census Bureau's American Community Survey (ACS). All of the incorporated towns in Northern Virginia have a population of less than 65,000 persons. One-year ACS estimates do not exist for incorporated places with a population of less than 65,000. All incorporated towns and places in the United States are included in the five-year ACS estimates. It is important to note that any data sourced from the ACS is based on a small sample of the population of a place. The ACS estimates for places with smaller populations such as Clifton, Dumfries, Hamilton, Haymarket, Hillsboro, Lovettsville, Middleburg, and Quantico can be unreliable if the margin of error is large. A town's margin of area for an ACS data piece can be found by hovering over the town's data in a graph. For comparative purposes, Northern Virginia counties and cities, Commonwealth of Virginia, and United States data are provided in the graphs. Educational Attainment

Foreign Born Population Transformation ​The Washington, D.C. metropolitan area is one of the most diverse in the country when taking into consideration the minority and foreign born (immigrant) population make-up. Northern Virginia contains a sizable amount of the metropolitan area's diverse population. The foreign born or immigrant population is transforming the region and many of it's towns. Note, the terms foreign born and immigrant are used interchangeably throughout the NOVA Region Dashboard. ​ It is immigration that has been driving many of the major demographic trends in the region, including: School enrollment changes Sizable increases in the number of Hispanics and Asians Population and labor force growth Foreign Born Population Share - Current The region's highest ranked county/city is Manassas Park City, ranking 13th in the nation. The town of Herndon has a foreign born population that is significantly higher than Manassas Park City.

Northern Virginia's population was 21.4% foreign born in 2000 and has risen to 27.7% (2014-2018 ACS 5Yr Estimate). ​ A place is considered statistically similar to its characteristics in 2000 if the margin of error causes the low and high range of today's estimate to contain the 2000 figure. If this is the can it can not be said for certain that today's figure is different than in the past, even though the middle of the road estimate or best guess may be higher or lower than in 2000.

  • People Population Overall | Northern Virginia Regional Commission

    Population Growth Overall Reports, maps, and charts are best viewed on a desktop or tablet. Key Facts Population Growth Overall Northern Virginia is on the front lines of a demographic transformation shaping the United States. There has been an extraordinary amount of population growth in Northern Virginia. 2000 to 2010 Period Key Facts: ​ A population increase of 415,000, surpassing a previous decennial record of 360,000 added during the 1980s. The population growth during the decade was equivalent to adding a number that exceeded the 2010 population count for Prince William County. An average annual gain of nearly 42,000. A ten-year growth rate of 23% compared to 9% nationally. The population growth of Northern Virginia exceeded the population growth recorded in 35 of the 50 U.S. states. Two-thirds of the population growth of the Washington metropolitan region settled on the Virginia side of the Potomac River. Two-thirds of the population growth of Northern Virginia was located along the outer-ring suburbs of Prince William, Loudoun Counties, and the Cities of Manassas and Manassas Park. This was the first time in the history of Northern Virginia that the preponderance of new population growth moved to the outer rim. 2010 to 2019 Period Key Facts: ​ Nine years out from the last Census, Northern Virginia has added approximately 280,000 people, an increase that is greater than 34 states over the nine-year peri­od. Growth peaked in 2010. Growth in Northern Virginia has been on the decline in Northern Virginia since 2010, but it is still large and impactful on the region. Aside from the low annual growth from 2005 to 2006, the annual growth for the six year period from 2013 to 2019 has been the lowest since 2000. The Washington metropolitan region has an economy that is heavily dependent on the federal government. In 2013 federal sequestration began and the current presidential term began in 2016. Federal employment in the Washington metropolitan region has dropped from 373,400 in 2013 to 364,200 in 2019 according to the Bureau of Labor Statistic. Slower population growth in Northern Virginia has also occurred since 2013. Growth from 2017 to 2018 was estimated to be 13,600 and from 2018 to 2019 was estimated to be 12,600, which are the lowest annual amounts in the 19 year period from 2000 to 2019. A nine-year growth rate of 12% compared to 6% nationally. Where in Northern Virginia the growth is locating this decade is different than in the 1990s and 2000s. The preponderance of population growth of Northern Virginia continues to be located in the outer-ring suburbs of Prince William, Loudoun Counties, and the Cities of Manassas and Manassas Park. However, the share of the region's growth that is in the outer-ring has dropped from 65.1% to 59.8%. Arlington has seen its share of the region's growth more than double from what it experienced in the 1990's and 2000's. Alexandria has seen its share of the region's growth become 2.4 times what it experienced in the 2000's. Intensification of developmental pressures this decade in the inner-core is a response to the millennial generation preferences, demographics, urbanization, transportation and other market pressures.

    Top of Page Race and Ethnicity Overall Reports, maps, and charts are best viewed on a desktop or tablet. Minority-Majority Transition A big story of the region is the minority-majority transition. There will soon be a day when the majority of people will belong to a minority group (any group other than non-Hispanic White alone). Much of this is attributed to the sizable increases in the number of Hispanics and Asians in the region. Key Facts: ​ In 2000, Northern Virginia's minority population was 34.6%, which was fairly similar to Virginia and the United States, with the difference being 4 or 5 percentage points. In 2019, Northern Virginia was nearly minority-majority, with a minority population of 49.7%. Northern Virginia's rate of increase of the minority population is much greater than the United States and Virginia. The region is now 10 or 11 percentage points higher than Virginia and the United States. From 2000 to 2010, 88 percent of the net population increase in Northern Virginia came from increases in minorities. From 2010 to 2019, it was 92 percent.
