Project Title: Projecting Taos County Population Growth



This project will predict the population growth of Taos County, New Mexico for the next hundred years. Factors such as water supply, industry, cost of living, and birth and death rates will be used to make appropriate adjustments in our prediction. We will obtain data from multiple sources including the Taos County Chamber of Commerce, the New Mexico Economic Development Department, and the New Mexico Department of Agriculture.

A mathematical model will be made, which will incorporate these important population growth factors. This mathematical model will be converted into a Java program. The program will be used to predict population growth of Taos County in various scenarios.
