  • Economically Disadvantaged Overall | Northern Virginia Regional Commission

    Economically Disadvantaged Overall Reports, maps, and charts are best viewed on a desktop or tablet. Key Facts Economically Disadvantaged Overall While Northern Virginia is known for having communities with some of the highest median incomes in the United States, we must recognize that there are segments of the community in need of assistance that live in one of the most prosperous regions in the country. ​ 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. Poverty The Northern Virginia region has some of the highest household incomes in the United States. However, there are persons in poverty in the region, and their needs must be recognized and addressed. The poverty rates of all counties and cities in Northern Virginia are shown in the following graphs. The poverty rate is the ratio of the number of persons in poverty divided by the number of persons for whom poverty status was determined. Not everyone had their poverty status determined so this figure will be less than the total population. Poverty Rate - Current 2016 to 2020 Five-Year Estimates Northern Virginia's poverty rate is 5.8%, compared to 10.0% for Virginia and 12.8% for the nation according to the U.S. Census Bureau American Community Survey. All jurisdictions in the United States are included in the five-year American Community Survey estimates. Out of all 3,143 jurisdictions in the USA, two of the ten lowest poverty rates are located in the Northern Virginia localities of Falls Church (4th) and Loudoun County (9th). Loudoun County and Falls Church are also the number one and two ranked for median household income, respectively. However, there are persons in poverty in Loudoun, Falls Church, and the rest of the region, and their needs must be recognized and addressed. Poverty Rate - 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, of which there are 829 jurisdictions. The poverty rate, for those jurisdictions in Northern Virginia with a population of 65,000 or more, is shown in this graph. All of Northern Virginia's largest jurisdictions have poverty rates lower than the United States and the Commonwealth of Virginia. Out of the 829 jurisdictions with a population of 65,000 or more in the USA, one of the ten lowest poverty rates is located in the Northern Virginia locality of Loudoun County (3rd). Loudoun County is also the number one ranked for median household income. However, there are persons in poverty in Loudoun and the rest of the region and their needs must be recognized. Poverty Rate - Historic Compared to Current Five-Year Estimates Northern Virginia's poverty rate has experienced a similar pattern to the Commonwealth of Virginia and the United States over time. From 1999 to the 2011-2015 period there was an increase in the percent of persons in poverty and then in the 2016-2020 period it dropped, but it was still above the lowest levels seen in 2000. Note, the American Community Survey is a survey with a small sample size. Areas with smaller populations, such as the cities of Northern Virginia, may have a larger margin of error in the data due to the survey sample size being small. This is less of an issue the larger the population. The margin of error is shown in the popup that is displayed when hovering over a bar in the bar charts. In addition to the margin of error, the accuracy of the American Community Survey data for an area can be gaged by evaluating the trend. If there is a large increase or decrease in the estimate from one time period to the next, and the margin of error is large and overlaps other periods, then the large change between time periods is likely due to statistical sampling error and the data should be used with caution. Poverty Rate - Historic Compared to Current One-Year Estimates The poverty rate trend, for the regions large jurisdictions (population of 65,000 or more), are shown in the following graph. Key Facts: Alexandria had been trending up from 2011 until it peaked in 2016. It has steadily decrease since 2016. Arlington had an increase in poverty from 2010 until it peaked in 2013. There was a downward trend since 2013, but in 2019, there was a large increase. However, the 2019 poverty rate is not statistically different than 2018 and the abnormally large increase likely due to statistical errors from the small survey size. Loudoun's poverty rate peaked in 2011 and is now at one of its lowest points since then. Prince William County's poverty rate was trending up from 2010 to its peak in 2016. It has since been lower and held steady at around 6%. Fairfax County has held pretty steady over time at around 6%, with all years being statistically similar when accounting for the margin of error. Free and Reduced-Price School Meal Students The number of students in Northern Virginia on free and reduced-price meals on October 31st of a school year is shown in the tables. The percentage of students in Northern Virginia on free and reduced-price meals has slowly increased with 2017-2018 at 31.7%, 2018-2019 at 32.0%, and 2019-2020 at 32.8%. Snap data is unavailable for 2020-2021 due to the pandemic. Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program Expenditures The Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) expenditures in Northern Virginia are shown in this graph, including data for 2021 through June. Since 2006, the peak amount of expenditures was reached in 2020 during the COVID-19 pandemic and its economic downturn. The COVID-19 pandemic hit the world and its impact on the Northern Virginia region was significant from a health and economic stand point. In 2020, the SNAP expenditures for public and non-public combined were 10% higher than the 2013 prior peak.

  • Economics Median Household of Towns | Northern Virginia Regional Commission

    Median Household Income of Towns Reports, maps, and charts are best viewed on a desktop or tablet. Key Facts Median Household Income Towns Northern Virginia is known for having communities with some of the highest median incomes in the United States, including the county with the highest in the nation. High median household incomes coincide with the large, thriving business community of the Northern Virginia region. While the median household income is high, we must recognize that there are segments of the community in need of assistance that live in this prosperous region of the country and that high housing costs offset the high income when it comes to standards of living and well-being. ​ About the Data and Data Interpretation Median household income data is sourced from the U.S. Census Bureau 2000 Decennial Census and the American Community Survey from 2006 to the present. All jurisdictions in the United States are included in the Decennial Census and five-year American Community Survey estimates, including incorporated towns. The American Community Survey is a survey with a small sample size. Areas with small populations typically have a large margin of error in the data due to the survey sample size being small, while this is less of an issue the larger the population. The margin of error is shown in the popup that is displayed when hovering over a bar in the bar charts. The ACS estimates for small places are deemed unreliable if the margin of error is large. In addition to the margin of error, the accuracy of the American Community Survey data for an area can be gaged by evaluating the trend. If there is a large increase or decrease in the estimate from one time period to the next, and the margin of error is large and overlaps other periods, then the large change between time periods is likely due to statistical sampling error and the data should be used with caution. As seen in the population charts , as of 2020, 9 of the 14 incorporated towns in Northern Virginia had a population of less than 3,000, which is considered small. Due to the small size of many towns, the median household income data of towns should be used with caution and the margin of error in the median household income should be taken into consideration. ​ A place is considered statistically similar to its characteristics of past years/periods if the margin of error causes the low and high range of today's estimate to overlap with the past years/periods. If the figures overlap, it cannot be said for certain that a figure is different than the prior year/period, even though the middle of the road estimate may be higher or lower. Estimates are considered statistically different if the estimate range does not overlap. Median Household Income - Current 2016 to 2020 Five-Year Estimates The median household income of the counties, cities, and incorporated towns in Northern Virginia is shown in this graph. Loudoun County is the number one ranked county (county equivalent) for median household income in the nation. The towns of Hillsboro, Vienna, and Clifton have estimated median household incomes even greater than Loudoun County. All Northern Virginia counties, cities and town, except for two towns, have a median household income above Virginia or the United States. The incomes of Quantico and Dumfries are estimated to be below the United States, but are not statistically different from the United States based on the margins of error of the survey. The incomes of Quantico and Dumfries are estimated to be below Virginia and are statistically different from Virginia based on the margins of error of the survey. Median Household Income - Historic Compared to Current Five-Year Estimates Due to the small size of many towns, the median household income of towns should be used with caution and the margin of error of the median household income should be taken into consideration. If there is a large increase or decrease in the estimate from one time period to the next, and the margin of error is large and overlaps other periods, then the large change between time periods is likely due to statistical sampling error and the data should be used with caution.

  • People Race of Towns | Northern Virginia Regional Commission

    Race and Ethnicity of Towns Reports, maps, and charts are best viewed on a desktop or tablet. Key Facts Race and Ethnicity Towns 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 incorporated towns. 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. 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 .

    Foreign Born and Immigrants of Towns 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 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 About the Data and Data Interpretation Foreign born demographic data is sources from from the U.S. Census Bureau 2000 Decennial Census and the American Community Survey from 2006 to the present. All jurisdictions in the United States are included in the Decennial Census and five-year American Community Survey estimates, including incorporated towns.

If the figures overlap, it cannot be said for certain that a figure is different than the prior year/period, even though the middle of the road estimate may be higher or lower. Estimates are considered statistically different if the estimate range does not overlap. Foreign Born Population Share - Current The region's highest ranked county/city is Manassas Park City, ranking 6th in the nation. The town of Herndon has a foreign born population that is statistically similar than Manassas Park City. Towns that are estimated to have less foreign born population shares than the Commonwealth of Virginia are all located within rural Loudoun County (Lovettsville, Purcellville, Hamilton, Middleburg, Round Hill), except for Clifton which is located in rural Fairfax County and Quantico which is located in a densely populated part of Prince William County. Note, the town of Hillsboro's 2016-2020 estimate is considered to be highly unreliable based on the large margin of error, and its abnormally large increase from prior five-year periods. Foreign Born Population Share - Historic Compared to Current 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). ​ ​Large transformations since 2000 have occurred in the towns of Dumfries, Haymarket, Leesburg, Lovettsville, Occoquan, Purcellville, and Quantico. All of these incorporated towns are located in the outer-core, which is where the majority of the region's growth has occurred. Note, the town of Hillsboro's 2016-2020 estimate is considered very unreliable based on the large margin of error, and its large increase from prior five-year periods.

Educational Attainment - Historic Compared to Current Bachelor's or Higher Degrees - Historic Compared to Current Five-Year Estimates Northern Virginia is one of the most educated places in the United States. The region's population has set an upward trend since 2000 to become even more and more highly educated than it already was. Northern Virginia's age 25 and over population holding bachelor's or higher degrees in 2000 was 50.7% and in the 2016-2020 period was 59.5%, compared to the United States which was 24.4% and 32.9% respectively. This strong growth in highly educated persons creates a strong, growing, and flourishing business community. Note, the American Community Survey is a survey with a small sample size.

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.

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.

  • Economics of Towns | Northern Virginia Regional Commission

    Economics of Towns About the Towns Economics 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.
