  • 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.

  • Immigration Study Labor Force Covid-19 | Northern Virginia Regional Commission

    Labor Force: COVID-19 Pandemic Reports, maps, and charts are best viewed on a desktop or tablet. Key Facts Labor Force - COVID-19 Immigrants are heavily represented among the region's frontline essential and healthcare workforce fighting against the virus and keeping the region running. Workers in essential industries are typically unable to work remotely, increasing their risk of exposure to the disease. ​ Workers in non-essential industries have been severely affected by the economic fallout of the coronavirus outbreak, especially those who cannot work remotely or whose places of work depend normally on face-to-face interaction. 2014 to 2018 Period Key Facts:​ ​ More than an estimated 410,000 workers in Northern Virginia work in essential industries and occupations. ​ 47.9 percent of all essential workers in Northern Virginia are foreign born. The total population of Northern Virginia is 27.6% foreign born.

  • Economically Disadvantaged of Towns | Northern Virginia Regional Commission

    Economically Disadvantaged of Towns Reports, maps, and charts are best viewed on a desktop or tablet. Key Facts Economically Disadvantaged of Towns 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. 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 rate of all counties, cities, and incorporated towns 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. About the Data and Data Interpretation Poverty Rate 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.

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. Poverty Rate - Current 2016 to 2020 Five-Year Estimates The poverty rate of each Northern Virginia locality is lower than the Commonwealth of Virginia and the United States, with the exception of the towns of Quantico and Dumfries. However, due to the large margin of error for both of these towns, these towns have poverty rates that are not statistically different than the United States and the Commonwealth of Virginia.

  • 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. For comparative purposes, Northern Virginia counties and cities, Commonwealth of Virginia, and United States data are provided in the graphs. Median Household Income Economically Disadvantaged
