Discussion Whitepaper

This is a discussion whitepaper about reimagining both the technology and science of growth forecasting for population, housing, and employment for potentially any city around the globe.

This paper is a complete rethink of growth forecasting from the ground up. Growth forecasting is highly complex, and requires expertise from: statisticians, demographers, urban planners, economists, financial experts, transportation experts, developers, GIS professionals, data scientists, data visualization professionals and information technology professionals.

This whitepaper proposes a data science approach to the next generation of growth forecasting including predictive modelling that fits within a reimagined technology platform.

This thinking may lead to exploratory research into the proposed predictive modelling and a data science approach to address the problem of growth forecasting.
