Your Market Demographics are Changing: Are You Ready?

Access the Latest Population Data for Better Strategic Planning

By Megan Reeves

The U.S. Census Bureau recently released the 2020 Census results, triggering conversations among marketers and planners everywhere about changing market demographics. These results track the nation’s diversity and how we’re evolving.

Key takeaways from the 2020 Census include the following:

  • The non-Hispanic white population nationwide got smaller, shrinking from 196 million in 2010 to 191 million in 2020
  • Almost all of the growth of the past 10 years happened in metropolitan areas
  • The share of children in the U.S. declined because of falling birth rates, while it grew for adults, driven by aging baby boomers
  • The nation’s 7.4% growth rate over the decade, the smallest since the Great Depression, was largely propelled by a Hispanic boom
  • Among all U.S. metro areas, the fastest-growing one was in The Villages, the Florida retirement community built on former cow pastures

For healthcare business development leaders, these population shifts should be a signal that it’s time to reevaluate their own market demographics, to ensure they’re set up to adequately meet the needs of their community. 

Stratasan, through the use of Esri's Tapestry Segmentation, is positioned to help in this endeavor.

Demographic Data: From Commodity to Strategic Planning Asset

Introducing Demographics for Launch Pathway

By Tony Camarata, Morgan Atkins, and Rebecca Groner

Demographic data is one of the oldest forms of strategic planning data available. The inaugural US Census was in 1790, which is relatively recent considering the history of census data. Today, demographic data is a basic commodity with detailed information being available on the Census Bureau's website. You can also get this kind of information from numerous established businesses or from a trade association.

While easy access to demographic data is convenient, simply having the information is often not enough. Businesses and organizations looking to use demographic data to find opportunities for growth will need the data to be filtered and organized in a way that makes it useful. This is especially the case for hospitals and healthcare systems.

Jackpot! Why Winning the Lottery Won’t Change Our Data

Posted by Jason Haley on Jan 14, 2016 2:08:16 PM

When someone wins the lottery, the income-level demographic data for where they live will be effected. However, depending on the way you look at this effect, there will either be slight changes, if any, or there will be a large change. The reason for this difference is that demographic datasets supply both mean and median household incomes.
