  • People Foreign Born Overall | Northern Virginia Regional Commission

    Foreign Born and Immigrants Overall Reports, maps, and charts are best viewed on a desktop or tablet. Key Facts Foreign Born Population Overall The Washington, D.C. metropolitan area is one of the most diverse in the country when taking into consideration the minority and foreign born (immigrant) population make-up. Northern Virginia contains a sizable amount of the metropolitan area's diverse population. The foreign born or immigrant population is transforming the region. Note, the terms foreign born and immigrant are used interchangeably throughout the NOVA Region Dashboard. It is immigration that has been driving many of the major demographic trends in the region , including: School enrollment changes Sizable increases in the number of Hispanics and Asians Population and employment growth ​ Note: The 2020 ACS one-year estimates will not be released due to the impacts the COVID-19 pandemic on data collection and a lower response rate. The ACS collected only two-thirds of the responses it typically collects in a survey year. It did not meet the Census Bureau’s data quality standards. Therefore, 2019 ACS one-year estimates are the latest shown on our dashboard for the one-year estimates. Foreign Born Population Share - Current 2016 to 2020 Five-Year Estimates All jurisdictions in the United States are included in the five-year American Community Survey estimates. The share of the population that is foreign born, for all jurisdictions in Northern Virginia, is displayed in this graph. Northern Virginia's foreign born population share is 27.8%. All Northern Virginia jurisdiction's have a foreign born population share that is greater than the Commonwealth of Virginia and the United States. Out of all 3,143 jurisdictions in the USA, all are ranked #146 or higher. The region's highest ranked are Manassas Park City (6th), Fairfax County (22nd), and Fairfax City (30th), each of which have a greater foreign born population share than New York County, New York (Manhattan) (28.3% and 34th). Back in 2000, all jurisdictions in Northern Virginia had a foreign born population share that was less than Manhattan. These high ranks of the region's jurisdictions are indicative of a transforming region and the very diverse population of Northern Virginia and the DC metropolitan area. Foreign Born Population Share - Current 2019 One-Year Estimates Those jurisdictions with a population of 65,000 or more are included in the one-year American Community Survey estimates. The share of the population that is foreign born, for all jurisdictions in Northern Virginia, is displayed in this graph. All Northern Virginia jurisdiction's have a foreign born population share that is greater than the Commonwealth of Virginia and the United States. Out of the 829 jurisdictions with a population of 65,000 or more in the USA, all are ranked #55 or higher, with the region's highest ranked, large jurisdiction being Fairfax County, ranked 17th with a foreign born population of 31.4%. Fairfax County has a greater foreign born population share than New York County, New York (Manhattan) (27.8% and 25th) and Orange County, California (29.9% at 18th). Back in 2000, all jurisdictions in Northern Virginia had a foreign born population share that was less than Manhattan. These high and changing ranks for the region's jurisdictions are indicative of the very diverse population and a transforming region of Northern Virginia and the DC metropolitan area. Foreign Born Population Share - Historic Compared to Current Five-Year Estimates Immigration has been driving many of the major demographic trends in the region. The foreign born population is transforming the region. Northern Virginia's population was 21.4% foreign born in 2000 and has risen to 27.8% (2016-2020 ACS 5Yr Estimate). Similar to today, back in 2000 all Northern Virginia jurisdictions had a foreign born population share that was greater than the Commonwealth of Virginia and the United States. What is different is that all jurisdictions in the region, except Arlington, have seen their foreign born population share increase. The greatest transformations have occurred in the four outer-core jurisdictions of Loudoun, Manassas City, Manassas Park, and Prince William. These four outer-core jurisdictions are the same jurisdictions that comprise a majority of the region's overall population growth. Foreign Born Population Share - Historic Compared to Current One-Year Estimates The foreign born population trend, for the regions large jurisdictions (population of 65,000 or more), is shown in the following graphs. The legal status of non-citizens is unknown and not collected by the U.S. Census Bureau in any of its data sets. Key Facts: ​ Loudoun and Prince William Counties have been on the rise in their total foreign born population from 2010 to 2019. Fairfax County's foreign born population was on the rise from 2010 to 2017. In 2018 there was a decline in Fairfax County that was statistically significant. From 2018 to 2019 this population held fairly steady, with 2019 not statistically different from 2018. Alexandria and Arlington's foreign born populations have dropped from 2017 or 2018 to 2019. These are statistically significant drops. Overall, from 2011 to 2017 the region's five largest jurisdictions combined had experienced an increase. Overall, from 2017 to 2018 the region's five largest jurisdictions combined saw a decline of approximately 8,000. Between 2017 and 2018 there were increases in the region's naturalized citizen population. The absolute decrease was attributable to non-citizen populations migrating out of the area in greater amounts than naturalized citizens moving into the area. For comparison, from 2017 to 2018 the nation experienced its smallest increase in the foreign born population since 2010. Like the region, the nation experienced an increase in naturalized citizens and a decline in non-citizens from 2017 to 2018. The nation's slow growth was attributable to an absolute decline in the number of non-citizens. Overall, from 2018 to 2019 the region's large jurisdictions combined experienced minimal change in the foreign born population. The naturalized and non-citizen population also experienced minimal change.

  • People Race Overall | Northern Virginia Regional Commission

    Race and Ethnicity Overall Reports, maps, and charts are best viewed on a desktop or tablet. Key Facts Race and Ethnicity Overall A big story of the region is its diversification and majority-minority transition. There will soon be a day when the majority of people will belong to a minority group (any group other than non-Hispanic White alone). Much of this is attributed to the sizable increases in the number of Hispanics, Asians, and multiracial persons in the region. ​ The following charts show the region's race, ethnic, and minority breakdown for Northern Virginia and its counties and cities. Hispanic and Latino are displayed separately from race because Hispanic and Latino is an ethnic classification and not a race classification. Hispanic and Latino persons can be of any race. Minorities are defined as anyone other than a person self-identifying as white non-Hispanic. Decennial Census Data The Decennial Census is based on a survey of the entire population. It is conducted once a decade. The 2020 Decennial Census population was released on August 12, 2021. The Decennial Census regional, county, and city population data is shown in the interactive charts that follow. Comparisons of changes in race and ethnicity between 2020 and prior years should be viewed with caution. According to the Census Bureau, “The observed changes in the multiracial population could be attributed to a number of factors, including demographic change since 2010. But we expect they were largely due to the improvements to the design of the two separate questions for race and ethnicity, data processing, and coding, which enabled a more thorough and accurate depiction of how people prefer to self-identify.” For details on the changes please view the U.S. Census Bureau's technical information . Annual Estimates Data Annual estimates of population paint a portrait of the annual growth patterns in the towns of Northern Virginia. Annual estimates are not based on a full census of the population. Rather they are estimates based on a compilation of multiple administrative data pieces such as birth records and residential building permits. The estimates are benchmarked to the Decennial Census. These latest estimates are benchmarked to the 2010 Decennial Census. The 2020 Decennial Census data was released on August 12, 2021. Using the results of the 2020 Decennial Census, the annual estimates for 2010 to 2019 shown below will be adjusted later on by the U.S. Census Bureau sometime in 2022. Until the data is adjusted, the following data will not correspond exactly with the results of the 2020 Census, but the estimates are relatively close.

  • Coronavirus (COVID-19) Vaccine | Northern Virginia Regional Commission

    Coronavirus Vaccine Dashboard Reports, maps, and charts are best viewed on a desktop or tablet. Background Information Three dashboards are maintained by NVRC to track coronavirus cases , t esting , and vaccine data for the Northern Virginia region. The coronavirus information found in the dashboards is sourced from the Virginia Department of Health (VDH). ​ In addition to NVRC's dashboards, VDH maintains a dashboard on Northern Virginia key measures that include hospitalized patients, hospital bed occupancy, and hospital bed capacity and data. View the hospital key measures . ​ In addition to the regional information, statewide information can be found on VDH's coronavirus website. Coronavirus Vaccine Administration This dashboard contains coronavirus vaccine administration information and trend information for the region and its health districts. The coronavirus information is sourced from the Virginia Department of Health. Track total doses administered, persons vaccinated with at least one dose, and persons fully vaccinate. The dashboard is updated weekly on Wednesday, generally between 10:30am and 1:00pm following the Virginia Department of Health's daily update. Interpretation of the Data The data are by administration date. The administration date is the actual date when the administration of a vaccination occurred. Data reflects health records that had been input into VDH's VIIS database system as of the prior day. All administered vaccinations for an administration date may not have been input. The data for prior administration dates will be updated daily as data is received. Healthcare providers have up to 72 hours after administration to input and submit information, shown by the gray shaded area on the graph. Gray shaded areas contain incomplete data. ​ The vaccination figures for the Northern Virginia region and the health districts include administered doses that were distributed by VDH. They also include doses administered through the Federal CDC Pharmacy Partnership for Long Term Care Facilities and the Federal CDC Federal Retail Pharmacy Program. They do not include doses administered to Virginia residents through the federal workers program. They also do not include vaccinations of residents of Virginia that VDH does not have information on the place of residence. The Northern Virginia and health district figures are under-reported by VDH. In other words, the Northern Virginia and health district figures are higher than the listed amounts. Therefore, caution should be used when interpreting and using this data. ​ Doses Administered: This number represents the total doses administered, regardless of whether it was a person's first dose or a second dose. This number will be greater than the number of people who have received at least one dose because some people will have received more than one dose. This number may be less than the sum of the number of people who have received at least one dose and the number of people fully vaccinated because some people will have been fully vaccinated with one dose. ​ People Vaccinated with at Least One Dose: People who have received one dose and individuals who have received two doses. ​ People Fully Vaccinated: People who have completed the recommended series of a given vaccine product (e.g. 1 dose of Johnson and Johnson, 2 doses of the 2-dose Pfizer or Moderna vaccine series). ​ Total Population: The total population is from the U.S. Census Bureau's Population Estimates Program, 2019 Vintage Estimates. Age 12+ Population : The eligible population for vaccination is currently age 12 and over. The population age 12 and over is derived from an NVRC analysis of U.S. Census Bureau's Population Estimates Program, 2019 Vintage Estimates and the U.S. Census Bureau's American Community Survey, 2019 5-Year Estimates PUMS data. The percentage of the age 10 to 14 population that is age 12 to 14 is derived from the American Community Survey. The percentage age 12 to 14 is applied to the Population Estimates Program's population age 10 to 14 and then summed with the population age 15 and over from the Population Estimates Program. ​ ​ ​ To Navigate the Dashboard Displayed Below Select the measure for the bar chart: total tests or percent positive. Select the health district of interest. The default is Northern Virginia, which is actually not a health district, but this option is provided for regional summarization of the region's health districts.
