This report is a comparison by Indiana county of the Census 2000 population data and the 1980 and 1990 data.

The number of people who choose to live in a region has varying impacts on the amount of investment in the area by households as well as by the public, private, and nonprofit sectors. Consequently, changes in the types and amounts of investment impact policy choices. Central Indiana,which is experiencing faster population growth than the rest of the state, perhaps faces greater challenges because of this growth.These challenges are shared throughout the region because most of the growth in Central Indiana has occurred within the Indianapolis MSA, but the impact is being felt in other counties as well.
