Student enrollment is the main driver of spending growth (outside of inflation) in the county for the next ten years. We project student generation factors (SGFs)--the number of
students on average coming from each type of property--for the next few years based on long-term demographic trends. In this paper, we describe those trends, how we extrapolate from those trends
in the next 10 years, and how development and redevelopment are used to generate our projections of student enrollment through 2030.
