                           Southern California Association of Governments’ (SCAG) Regional Council
                                includes 67 Districts which represent 189 cities in the SCAG region.

                                                SCAG Regional Council District 2 includes six cities:
    Cathedral City, Desert Hot Springs, Indian Wells, Palm Desert, Palm Springs, and Rancho Mirage

This project was funded by the Southern California Association of Governments
and shared with the City of Palm Springs. SCAG regularly provides local
governments with services including planning data and information, technical
assistance such as GIS training, and planning assistance such as analyses of
visioning, infill, real estate investment, and fiscal impact.

SCAG wishes to recognize the City of Palm Springs for volunteering to participate in a
regionally funded demonstration project through the Compass Blueprint program.
This partnership is a showcase for collaborative planning based on a shared vision on how
to address the challenge of population, housing and employment growth and change.

IX. Methodology
Explanation of City Relative to County

In the table on page 1 of this report, the reference of City “Relative to County” for absolute
numbers indicates the difference between the city number and the county number. For
example, the Median Age of City A being 30 and the Median Age of County B being 35
would show a relative difference of 5. For data that is a percentage, the relative difference
is based on the city as a percentage of the county total.

Population

The population for each jurisdiction was based on California Department of Finance data.
These are the official state population and housing estimates. The 2000 figure was based
on U.S. Census figures for April 1, 2000 while subsequent years represent the city’s
population as of January 1 of each year.

Graphs for population based on age and race were tabulated using Census 2000 data and
Claritas, Inc.

Households

The number of households for each jurisdiction was based on California Department of
Finance data. The 2000 figure was based on U.S. Census figures for April 1, 2000 while
subsequent years represent the city’s households as of January 1 of each year.

Households by size were calculated based on Claritas, Inc. data.

Housing

Residential permits issued were obtained using Construction Industry Research Board data,
which are collected by Counties from self-reporting of individual cities. The number of
permits issued is reflective of all types of residential permit activity, including, but not
limited to new units, replacement units due to demolition, and additions.

The median home price was calculated based on total home sales in the city, including
single family units and condominiums. The median price does not reflect the entire
universe of housing in the jurisdictions, only those that sold within the calendar year.

The data was compiled from Data Quick Information Systems.

Employment

Employment data is based on the California Employment Development Department (EDD)
county totals and is adjusted by SCAG. SCAG adjusts the data by adding self-employed to
the EDD wage and salary county totals. Due to EDD methodology, employment data is
based on the location of a company’s payroll and not necessarily the location of physical
offices.

Retail Sales

Retail sales data is obtained from the California Board of Equalization, which does not
publish individual point-of-sale data. All data is adjusted for inflation.

Education

Student enrollment data is based on public schools that are physically located within city
boundaries. Data is obtained from the National Center for Education Statistics.

Choice of Data Sources

The following factors were considered in choosing the data sources used for this report:
   • Available for all jurisdictions in the SCAG region
   • The most recognized source on the subject
   • Data sources are in the public domain
   • Data available on an annual basis

The same data sources are used for all jurisdictional profiles (except where noted) to
maintain overall reporting consistency. The jurisdiction is not constrained from using other
data sources for their planning activities.
