People and Economies: How quantitative regional scenarios can set the table for policy and planning

People and Economies: How quantitative regional scenarios can set the table for policy and planning

This webinar, featuring the work of the Chicago Metropolitan Agency for Planning (CMAP) and the Metropolitan Area Planning Council (MAPC), covers the following learning objectives: 1) how models with scenarios built in, either ‘off the shelf’ or custom designed, can support quantitative analysis, 2) how scenarios and quantitative analysis combine to support policy decisions, and 3) how the relationships between populations, labor force, and housing demand can be understood in particular for policy decisions. The companion video is available at https://vimeo.com/287509451. Find out more about the Consortium for Scenario Planning at http://www.scenarioplanning.io.
