Washoe County has experienced a recent expansion in population and real estate prices. Since 2010, the county has seen an increase of almost 40 thousand residents in their population census, according to the U.S. Census Bureau. The growing population and economy have possibly shifted denizen demands for public services offered by the county such as public transportation and law enforcement. Population expansion can prompt economic repercussions like a demand shift for greater road maintenance. Demographic segments across the population may prioritize specific public services over others. Younger age groups may prefer an expansion of the education system whereas older age groups could have greater demand for other services. An increase in real estate prices can also affect public expenditures to provide services. This crucial time of growth evokes a need for a public evaluative analysis of demands and preferences for public goods and services.
