New Demographics Report Could Help Columbia Association and Villages Better Serve and Advocate for Residents

What % of Columbia residents have a college degree? The answer, and many more facts, can be found in CA's “Characteristics of Columbia, Maryland: a demographic and socio-economic profile”


What percentage of Columbia residents have a college degree? Which village has the highest rate of households that own their homes, free and clear? Which village has the largest average household size? And what percentage of Columbia households include children?

The answers to these questions, and many more facts about Columbia, can be found in “Characteristics of Columbia, Maryland: a demographic and socio-economic profile,” which was recently released by Columbia Association (CA).

The 178-page report is based on analysis data from the Census Bureau from the 2010 Census and the latest estimates from the Census Bureau’s American Community Survey. The report provides a basis for understanding the demographic and socioeconomic characteristics of Columbia and its villages.

“This report provides important data sets that can aid Columbia Association and the villages in tailoring programs and facilities, as well as help them advocate for the needs of the Columbia community,” said Jane Dembner, CA’s director of community building and sustainability.

In line with CA’s sustainability initiatives, the report is being published in electronic format and can be found online at bit.ly/columbiacharacteristics. A limited number of CD copies of the report also are available.

CA staff also will be available to make a presentation of highlights from the report’s findings. For more information, contact Dembner atJane.Dembner@ColumbiaAssociation.org or call 410-715-3107.

CA would also like to acknowledge the invaluable technical assistance and support provided by the Research Division of the Howard County Department of Planning and Zoning, and the Demographic and Socioeconomic Projections Division at the Maryland Department of Planning.
