Population and household projection for the Regional Association of Greater Brunswick (2022)

The Regional Association of Greater Brunswick (Bundesland Lower Saxony) covers the area of the urban districts of Brunswick, Salzgitter and Wolfsburg and the districts of Gifhorn, Goslar, Helmstedt, Peine and Wolfenbüttel with a total area of 5,090 square kilometres and 1.14 million inhabitants in 141 municipalities. The regional association is the responsible body for regional planning and the lower state planning authority.

S&W applied a forecast of the population and households for the regional association, in which the development of population numbers and structures as well as household numbers and structures were calculated up to the year 2040. The results of the  forecasts enable politicians and administrators to act with foresight instead of having to react to developments retrospectively.
