An Economic Vision for Nassau County

There has been plenty of talk surrounding the economic state of Nassau County - from concerns over corporations leaving and taking job opportunities with them to the so-called "Brain Drain" with the youngest generation leaving the county to find job opportunities elsewhere - but by and large, there has been no action.

Projections indicate that over the next 10 years, by 2024:

  • Nassau County's population will decline by approximately 3.0% from 2012 to 2024
  • The senior (60+) segment will increase to 27.4% of the County population, up from 22.2% in 2012
  • The County will continue to experience a decrease of 11.1% of those aged 10-19, who will go on to college or move elsewhere and not return to Nassau County.
  • The 0-9 year old segment will have approximately 60,000 fewer children or about 30% less than in 2000.
These trends are a cause for serious concern - If something is not done there will be serious economic ramifications for our schools, taxes and real estate prices.
