Knowing the demographics (population profile) of your community is an excellent starting point to identify assets, needs, gaps, and trends.
- Draw a line to show the current population in your community.
- Draw a line to show what you project the population may be in your community in the next five or more years.
- Write comments about what you know for each current age category.
- Write comments about how each age category may change in the next five or more years, and what factors might affect this age category in the next five or more years.
Debrief: Discuss how your community plan will consider the current and future population.
