Who We Are is Changing Fast
January 26, 2012
Census Bureau data affirms what many of us already know for Montgomery County: our demographics are changing and with it our needs.
This chart is a snapshot of the Maryland demographic changes from the past decade. As an inclusive jurisdiction that believes in the power of diverse communities, Montgomery County has responded to these demographic changes with a strong focus in the schools and continued support for public transportation and health care services, among other policies.
We need to do more to educate new populations about their government, including how to access services and participate in civic affairs.
