Demographic data are driving planning as the City of Newton prepares to meet the needs of our residents now and in the future.
Two demographic reports were prepared for the City by Barry Bluestone from the Dukakis Center at Northeastern University. The first report which has been available on our website charted trends in Newton’s population profile; tracked its housing stock, housing production, and home prices; and added detail on these matters for the city’s 18 census tracts.

The second report projects demographics for the next 25 years. This projection report will help to inform strategies on important issues, including, housing, parking, and transportation. The findings in this report can be found at this link:
