To provide a more accurate picture of how Virginia is changing, demographers at the University of Virginia's Weldon Cooper Center for Public Service had defined eight regional profiles based on proximity, geography, demographic characteristics and shared socioeconomic conditions.
The original 2011 profiles were based on data reported over the ten years between 2000 and the latest decennial census in 2010, including data from the American Community Survey. The profiles presented here incorporate more recent data from the 2008-2012 American Community Survey; Census Bureau Age and Race Estimates; and Weldon Cooper Center Population Estimates, including information on population size and trends; age distribution; racial and ethnic composition; educational attainment; employment; income and poverty status; and health insurance coverage.
