Slower Population Gain
Population growth in North
ern Virginia is expected to be
only half as great in the next
five years as it was during the
past five years, according to a
study released today.
A slowdown in the rate of
growth is noted in a report pre
pared for the Northern Virginia
Planning and Economic Develop
ment Commission. The report is
one of a series being prepared in
a SIO,OOO fiscal study authorized
by the commission.
The population of Arlington
and Fairfax Counties and the
cities of Alexandria and Falls
Church will reach 400,000 by
1900, according to the report
prepared by Dr. Lorin A. Thomp
son, director of the Bureau of
Population and Economic Re
search of the University of Vir
Population for the region is
now estimated at 407,000, a 34.2
per cent rise from the 303.328
reported In the 1950 census. The
increase expected > during the
next five years is estimated at
134 per cent.
1. Employment In the Metro
politan Area is tending to sta
bilise. Increases in the next dec
ade will be relatively small
compared to those since 1940.
2. Further expansion of ac
tivities of the Federal Govern
ment in the area will be quite
limited since further concentra
tion of activities in Washington
is contrary to sound national
defense policy.
3. The annual number of
births during the next five years
will be maintained at approxi
mately the current level.
4. Famines with children will
continue to move from apart
ments into the single family
areas, causing Fairfax County
to grow more rapidly than other
areas of Northern Virginia.
