  • Coronavirus (COVID-19) Vaccine | Northern Virginia Regional Commission

    Coronavirus Vaccine Dashboard Reports, maps, and charts are best viewed on a desktop or tablet. Background Information Three dashboards are maintained by NVRC to track coronavirus cases , t esting , and vaccine data for the Northern Virginia region. The coronavirus information found in the dashboards is sourced from the Virginia Department of Health (VDH). ​ In addition to the regional information, statewide information can be found on VDH's coronavirus website. Coronavirus Vaccine Administration This dashboard contains coronavirus vaccine administration information and trend information for the region and its health districts. The coronavirus information is sourced from the Virginia Department of Health. Track total doses administered, persons vaccinated with at least one dose, and persons fully vaccinate. November 22, 2022 Dashboard Updates NVRC updated its Vaccines Dashboard on November 22, 2022 to streamline information to better highlight current trends and monitor information most relevant to this point in the pandemic. ​ 1. Data Consolidation: Consolidated all vaccine data into one dashboard page. Retired one-dose data dashboard and fully vaccinated dashboard. ​ 2. Locality Comparison: Retired dose per 100,000 locality comparison chart. Locality comparison charts now display bar graphs comparing the percentage of people fully vaccinated and boosted. ​ 3. Age Groups: Added age 0-4 data and removed age 12+ data. ​ 4. Age 65+ VDH Data Issue: NVRC reports Virginia Department of Health (VDH) data. VDH Age 65+ booster data appears to be erroneous, for instance percentages are higher than 100% and boosted persons should not be less than fully vaccinated persons . VDH has been made aware of this issue by NVRC. Until VDH data corrects the data, the data will appear erroneous on NVRC's dashboard, for instances percentages greater than 100 percent . ​ Interpretation of the Data The data are by administration date. The administration date is the actual date when the administration of a vaccination occurred. Data reflects health records that had been input into VDH's VIIS database system as of the prior day. All administered vaccinations for an administration date may not have been input. The data for prior administration dates will be updated daily as data is received. Healthcare providers have up to 72 hours after administration to input and submit information, shown by the gray shaded area on the graph. Gray shaded areas contain incomplete data. ​ The vaccination figures for the Northern Virginia region and the health districts include administered doses that were distributed by VDH. They also include doses administered through the Federal CDC Pharmacy Partnership for Long Term Care Facilities and the Federal CDC Federal Retail Pharmacy Program. They do not include doses administered to Virginia residents through the federal workers program. They also do not include vaccinations of residents of Virginia that VDH does not have information on the place of residence. The Northern Virginia and health district figures are under-reported by VDH. In other words, the Northern Virginia and health district figures are higher than the listed amounts. Therefore, caution should be used when interpreting and using this data. ​ Doses Administered: This number represents the total doses administered, regardless of whether it was a person's first dose or a second dose. This number will be greater than the number of people who have received at least one dose because some people will have received more than one dose. This number may be less than the sum of the number of people who have received at least one dose and the number of people fully vaccinated because some people will have been fully vaccinated with one dose. ​ People Vaccinated with at Least One Dose: People who have received one dose. ​ People Fully Vaccinated: People who have completed the recommended series of a given vaccine product (e.g. 1 dose of Johnson and Johnson, 2 doses of the 2-dose Pfizer or Moderna vaccine series). ​ Total Population: The total population is from the U.S. Census Bureau's Population Estimates Program, 2019 Vintage Estimates. ​ To Navigate the Dashboard Displayed Below Select the measure for the bar chart: total tests or percent positive. Select the health district of interest. The default is Northern Virginia, which is actually not a health district, but this option is provided for regional summarization of the region's health districts.

  • People Race Overall | Northern Virginia Regional Commission

    Race and Ethnicity Overall Reports, maps, and charts are best viewed on a desktop or tablet. Key Facts Race and Ethnicity Overall A big story of the region is its diversification and majority-minority 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, Asians, and multiracial persons in the region. ​ The following charts show the region's race, ethnic, and minority breakdown for Northern Virginia and its counties and cities. Hispanic and Latino are displayed separately from race because Hispanic and Latino is an ethnic classification and not a race classification. Hispanic and Latino persons can be of any race. Minorities are defined as anyone other than a person self-identifying as white non-Hispanic. Annual Estimates Data Annual estimates of population paint a portrait of the annual growth patterns in the towns of Northern Virginia. Annual estimates are not based on a full census of the population. Rather, they are estimates based on a compilation of multiple administrative data pieces such as birth records and residential building permits. The estimates are benchmarked to the Decennial Census. The 2010 to 2019 estimates are benchmarked to the 2010 Decennial Census. The 2020 Decennial Census data was released on August 12, 2021. Using the results of the 2020 Decennial Census, the annual estimates for 2010 to 2019 shown below will be adjusted later on by the U.S. Census Bureau in 2023. Until the data is adjusted, the following data will not correspond exactly with the results of the 2020 Census. However, the estimates are relatively close and useful for identifying trends a Decennial Census Data The Decennial Census is based on a survey of the entire population. It is conducted once a decade. The 2020 Decennial Census population was released on August 12, 2021. The Decennial Census regional, county, and city population data is shown in the interactive charts that follow. Comparisons of changes in race and ethnicity between 2020 and prior years should be viewed with caution. According to the Census Bureau, “The observed changes in the multiracial population could be attributed to a number of factors, including demographic change since 2010. But we expect they were largely due to the improvements to the design of the two separate questions for race and ethnicity, data processing, and coding, which enabled a more thorough and accurate depiction of how people prefer to self-identify.” For details on the changes please view the U.S. Census Bureau's technical information .

  • People Foreign Born Overall | Northern Virginia Regional Commission

    Foreign Born and Immigrants Overall Reports, maps, and charts are best viewed on a desktop or tablet. Key Facts Foreign Born Population Overall 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. 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 employment growth ​ Note: The 2020 ACS one-year estimates will not be released due to the impacts the COVID-19 pandemic on data collection and a lower response rate. The ACS collected only two-thirds of the responses it typically collects in a survey year. It did not meet the Census Bureau’s data quality standards. Therefore, 2019 ACS one-year estimates are the latest shown on our dashboard for the one-year estimates. Foreign Born Population Share - Current 2016 to 2020 Five-Year Estimates All jurisdictions in the United States are included in the five-year American Community Survey estimates. The share of the population that is foreign born, for all jurisdictions in Northern Virginia, is displayed in this graph. Northern Virginia's foreign born population share is 27.8%. All Northern Virginia jurisdiction's have a foreign born population share that is greater than the Commonwealth of Virginia and the United States. Out of all 3,143 jurisdictions in the USA, all are ranked #146 or higher. The region's highest ranked are Manassas Park City (6th), Fairfax County (22nd), and Fairfax City (30th), each of which have a greater foreign born population share than New York County, New York (Manhattan) (28.3% and 34th). Back in 2000, all jurisdictions in Northern Virginia had a foreign born population share that was less than Manhattan. These high ranks of the region's jurisdictions are indicative of a transforming region and the very diverse population of Northern Virginia and the DC metropolitan area. Foreign Born Population Share - Current 2019 One-Year Estimates Those jurisdictions with a population of 65,000 or more are included in the one-year American Community Survey estimates. The share of the population that is foreign born, for all jurisdictions in Northern Virginia, is displayed in this graph. All Northern Virginia jurisdiction's have a foreign born population share that is greater than the Commonwealth of Virginia and the United States. Out of the 829 jurisdictions with a population of 65,000 or more in the USA, all are ranked #55 or higher, with the region's highest ranked, large jurisdiction being Fairfax County, ranked 17th with a foreign born population of 31.4%. Fairfax County has a greater foreign born population share than New York County, New York (Manhattan) (27.8% and 25th) and Orange County, California (29.9% at 18th). Back in 2000, all jurisdictions in Northern Virginia had a foreign born population share that was less than Manhattan. These high and changing ranks for the region's jurisdictions are indicative of the very diverse population and a transforming region of Northern Virginia and the DC metropolitan area. Foreign Born Population Share - Historic Compared to Current Five-Year Estimates Immigration has been driving many of the major demographic trends in the region. The foreign born population is transforming the region. Northern Virginia's population was 21.4% foreign born in 2000 and has risen to 27.8% (2016-2020 ACS 5Yr Estimate). Similar to today, back in 2000 all Northern Virginia jurisdictions had a foreign born population share that was greater than the Commonwealth of Virginia and the United States. What is different is that all jurisdictions in the region, except Arlington, have seen their foreign born population share increase. The greatest transformations have occurred in the four outer-core jurisdictions of Loudoun, Manassas City, Manassas Park, and Prince William. These four outer-core jurisdictions are the same jurisdictions that comprise a majority of the region's overall population growth. Foreign Born Population Share - Historic Compared to Current One-Year Estimates The foreign born population trend, for the regions large jurisdictions (population of 65,000 or more), is shown in the following graphs. The legal status of non-citizens is unknown and not collected by the U.S. Census Bureau in any of its data sets. Key Facts: ​ Loudoun and Prince William Counties have been on the rise in their total foreign born population from 2010 to 2019. Fairfax County's foreign born population was on the rise from 2010 to 2017. In 2018 there was a decline in Fairfax County that was statistically significant. From 2018 to 2019 this population held fairly steady, with 2019 not statistically different from 2018. Alexandria and Arlington's foreign born populations have dropped from 2017 or 2018 to 2019. These are statistically significant drops. Overall, from 2011 to 2017 the region's five largest jurisdictions combined had experienced an increase. Overall, from 2017 to 2018 the region's five largest jurisdictions combined saw a decline of approximately 8,000. Between 2017 and 2018 there were increases in the region's naturalized citizen population. The absolute decrease was attributable to non-citizen populations migrating out of the area in greater amounts than naturalized citizens moving into the area. For comparison, from 2017 to 2018 the nation experienced its smallest increase in the foreign born population since 2010. Like the region, the nation experienced an increase in naturalized citizens and a decline in non-citizens from 2017 to 2018. The nation's slow growth was attributable to an absolute decline in the number of non-citizens. Overall, from 2018 to 2019 the region's large jurisdictions combined experienced minimal change in the foreign born population. The naturalized and non-citizen population also experienced minimal change.

  • Immigration Study | NOVA Region Dashboard| Northern Virginia Regional Commission

    Immigration Study Reports, maps, and charts are best viewed on a desktop or tablet. The Northern Virginia Regional Commission was pleased to collaborate with the Partnership for a New American Economy (NAE) and the Community Foundation for Northern Virginia on the study, One Region: Welcoming New Americans to Northern Virginia. ​ The original study was published on March 12, 2020. It is a study of the economic impact of immigrants to the region. An addendum to the study was published on October 21, 2020 that provides immigrant data relevant to the COVID-19 pandemic crisis response . The research was conducted by NAE. NAE has undertaken similar studies throughout the United States.​ ​ This One Region report dashboard summarizes and reports on immigration in the Northern Virginia region. This dashboard provides quick access to key data pieces found in the report.

For copies of the presentations and video recording go to the webinar webpage. Download a copy of the original report, published March 2020 Overview of the One Region Report The One Region report is a comprehensive picture of new Americans in Northern Virginia (NOVA). It highlights the size and rapid growth in the immigrant population in the region and their impact on the local economy, including injecting more money into local businesses, property markets, and municipal budgets as consumers, homebuyers, and taxpayers. ​ Immigrants are major contributors to Northern Virginia's (NOVA) economy as highlighted in the report. The NOVA immigrant population is diverse. These people emigrate, seeking a better life for themselves and their families. “Immigrants are a vital part of the economic and social fabric of Northern Virginia. Their success is our success, and we must continue to be a welcoming community for all to ensure our long-term prosperity,” said P. David Tarter, Chairman of the Northern Virginia Regional Commission and Mayor of the City of Falls Church. Immigrants are an indispensable part of the local Northern Virginia economy at all levels, as workers, business owners, taxpayers and consumers. Trivia: What is the foreign born share of the population in NOVA? Source: U.S Census Bureau, 2018 American Community Survey, 5-Year Estimates. 27.6% Immigrants widen and deepen the labor market with a vast array of skills and levels of expertise. They help businesses, farms, and factories fill workforce gaps at all levels of the labor market, allowing companies to meet market demands and expand their operations, which leads to more job creation. ​ * Except where otherwise noted, the term “immigrant” and “foreign-born” are used interchangeably throughout the NOVA Region Dashboard and in the "One Region" report. One Region Report Addendum on COVID-19 Response ​This brief provides a glimpse at the role of immigrants in Northern Virginia during the Covid-19 pandemic as well as the impact that the pandemic has had on the immigrant community. ​ The immigrant population is especially vulnerable to gaps in our social safety nets. Understanding this population in Northern Virginia helps better inform local leaders as they aim to implement inclusive emergency response policies. The immigrant population is essential to our country’s rapid COVID-19 response efforts.

  • People Population Overall | Northern Virginia Regional Commission

    Population Overall Reports, maps, and charts are best viewed on a desktop or tablet. Key Facts Population 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. In 2021, the Northern Virginia population was estimated to be 2,537,934 , an increase of 73% from 1990 when the population was 1,466,350. ​ The COVID-19 pandemic began in the United States in March 2020 and has lasted through 2022. It changed the country's demographic migration patterns significantly. It also significantly impacted births and deaths. It greatly impacted Northern Virginia's demographic patterns as well. From July 1, 2020 to July 1, 2021, Northern Virginia's population declined in a one year period for the first time since Census Bureau annual record keeping began in 1970. It declined by an estimated 12,000 persons. Annual Estimates Data Annual estimates of population paint a portrait of the annual growth patterns in the towns of Northern Virginia. Annual estimates are not based on a full census of the population. Rather they are estimates based on a compilation of multiple administrative data pieces such as birth records and residential building permits. The estimates are obtained from the U.S. Census, which benchmarks them to Decennial Censuses. Decennial Census data represents the population as of April 1 of the year, whereas the annual estimates are as of July 1 of each year. The 2020 to 2021 estimates are benchmarked to the 2020 Decennial Census. The 2010 to 2019 estimates are benchmarked to only the 2010 Decennial Census, and not both the 2010 and 2020 Decennial Census at this time. The 2020 Decennial Census data was released on August 12, 2021. Using the results of the 2020 Decennial Census, the annual estimates for 2010 to 2019 shown below will be adjusted later on by the U.S. Census Bureau in late 2022. Until the data is adjusted, the 2010 to 2019 data will not be consistent with the results of the 2020 Census. Key Facts: ​ 2020 to 2021 Annual Growth The COVID-19 pandemic began in the United States in March 2020 and has lasted through 2022. It changed the country's demographic migration patterns significantly. It also significantly impacted births and deaths. Whether these shifts are temporary remains to be seen. It greatly impacted Northern Virginia's demographic patterns as well. From July 1, 2020 to July 1, 2021, Northern Virginia's population declined for the first time since Census Bureau annual record keeping began in 1970. It declined by an estimated 12,000 persons. Three of Northern Virginia's jurisdictions experienced growth, those being the counties of Loudoun and Prince William and the City of Fairfax. These three jurisdictions are outer jurisdictions. The other six jurisdictions experienced declines. Northern Virginia domestic out-migration was the factor that contributed to Northern Virginia's population decline during the first year of the pandemic. ​ Natural Change: In U.S. counties, natural decrease was significantly higher than in the prior two years. Natural decrease occurs when there are more deaths than births in a population over a given time period. In 2021, more than 73% of U.S. counties experienced natural decrease, compared to 45.5% in 2019 and 55.5% in 2020.* Northern Virginia had a natural increase of 15,090 persons. This is significantly less than pre-pandemic times. From 2011 to 2019, natural increase ranged from 20,500 to 24,800 annually. A large increase in deaths compared to the pre-pandemic times is what contributed to the change. Therefore, this phenomenon is believed to be temporary. Manassas Park is the only Northern Virginia jurisdiction that experienced a natural decrease (-37). ​ ​ Domestic Migration: Domestic migration patterns in the country shifted in 2021. In many cases, there was a population shift from larger, more populous counties to medium and smaller ones. Many people moved during the pandemic when work-from home became widespread for office workers. This shifting contributed to population increases in 58.0% of counties, decreases in 41.8% of counties, and no change in 0.3% of counties.* Northern Virginia domestic out-migration was the factor that contributed to Northern Virginia's population decline during the first year of the pandemic. There was a net loss of 34,018 persons from domestic migration, meaning that more domestic persons left the region than moved into the region. Northern Virginia has a large share of office jobs . Work-from home became widespread for office workers nationwide, leading to much domestic migration of office workers who transitioned to remote work. Northern Virginia's negative domestic migration was significantly different than pre-pandemic times. From 2014 to 2019, Northern Virginia had been experiencing a negative domestic migration of between 13,700 and 20,200 annually. Eight Northern Virginia jurisdictions had negative domestic migration. Only one jurisdiction had positive domestic migration and that one was the outer jurisdiction of Loudoun County. ​ International Migration: Positive for 71% of U.S. Counties.* Northern Virginia had a positive increase in international migration, with an increase of 6,607. All nine Northern Virginia jurisdictions had a positive increase in international migration. ​ * Source: U.S. Census Bureau, Over Two-Thirds of the Nation's Counties Had Natural Decrease in 2021 , Press Release, March 24, 2022. ​ 2017 to 2020 Annual Growth The annual growth from 2017 to 2020 had been the lowest since 2000. Growth from 2017 to 2018, 2018 to 2019, and 2019 to 2020 was estimated to be 14,300, 19,200, and 11,700 respectively. Two factors known to contribute to this during this period were the region's economic dependence on the federal government and immigrants.​​​​​ ​ ​The Washington metropolitan area has an economy that is heavily dependent on the federal government. When federal jobs are cut, federal contractor job cuts follow too. The presidential administration in office from January 2017 to January 2021 cutback federal jobs and federal contracting jobs until the 2020 COVID-19 pandemic. Federal employment (excluding contractors) in the Washington metropolitan region was 367,200 in 2016 prior to the new presidential administration. It dropped to 362,400 by 2019. In 2020 it improved to 369,000 according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics. Slower population growth in Northern Virginia was in parallel with the federal workforce decline from 2017 to 2019. ​ ​ Immigrants have driven Northern Virginia's growth for the past two decades. In 2000, Northern Virginia's population was 21% foreign born and today it is estimated to be approximately​ 28% foreign born. International migration slowed significantly from 2017 to 2020. To put this into perspective, from 2013 to 2017 annual international migration into the region ranged from 20,300 to 23,300 people, while from 2017 to 2020 it ranged from 10,600 to 16,100 people according to the U.S. Census Bureau. For more information, see the NOVA Region Dashboard section on immigration in Northern Virginia . Decennial Census Data The Decennial Census is based on a survey of the entire population. It is conducted once a decade. The 2020 Decennial Census population was released on August 12, 2021. The Decennial Census regional, county, and city population data is shown in the interactive charts that follow. Key Facts: ​ Decennial Growth In 2020, Northern Virginia's population was 2,550,337 according to the Decennial Census. The population increased from 1,466,409 in 1990, a 74% increase in the 30 year period from 1990 to 2020. Northern Virginia added approximately 320,000 people in this past decade, 2010 to 2020. This is 96,000 or 23% less than the previous decade, signaling a significant slowdown in the pace of growth. However, growth still continues at a high amount. Virginia’s population grew by 630,369 from 2010 to 2020, of which 50.7% of that growth was in Northern Virginia. I​​n 2020, 29.5% of Virginia’s population was in Northern Virginia, compared to 27.9% in 2010. Growth peaked in 2010. Growth in Northern Virginia has slowed since 2010. It has trended down annually since 2010, but it is still large and impactful growth that the the region is facing. The localities in Northern Virginia the growth is occurring in this decade is different in some ways 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% in the 2000 to 2010 period to 61.5% in the 2010 to 2020 period. Arlington has seen its share of the region's growth more than double from what it experienced in the 2000's. Alexandria has seen its share of the region's growth become 2.2 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. ​

  • Economics Workforce Overall | Northern Virginia Regional Commission

    Workforce Overall Reports, maps, and charts are best viewed on a desktop or tablet. State of the Region - July 2022 Economic Recovery and Transformation from COVID-19 Pandemic Information on the state of the Northern Virginia region's economic recovery and the transformation from the coronavirus COVID-19 pandemic is found in the State of the Region July 2022 report. As society eases back to normalcy, people have been returning to the labor force, but – despite many people returning to the labor force and new entrants to the Northern Virginia labor force – there are currently not enough workers to meet the labor force demands across various industries in the region. The region’s labor force is significantly down from February 2020, there are a high number of job postings, and there is a low unemployment rate. The economic effect of the COVID-19 pandemic and the economic recovery has been uneven across industries and demographic groups in Northern Virginia.
