How much will Central Ohio grow?

Each of the insight2050 scenarios accommodates the same number of people, homes, and jobs. insight2050 uses regional projections from MORPC for population and employment through 2050, based on official projections from the state. According to these projections, the 7-county region will grow by about 1 million people and 300,000 jobs between 2010 and 2050; about 300,000 new housing units will be needed to accommodate population growth. This rate of growth is roughly on pace with national growth rates, and far exceeds that of other cities in Ohio.
