person commuting
This document presents, for each county and city in Virginia, the top 10 localities where residents commuted to or workers commuted from. The data come from the Census Bureau’s latest 2015 Longitudinal Employer-Household Dynamics program (LEHD), specifically the LEHD Origin-Destination Employment Statistics (LODES) dataset.

Cancer is a leading cause of death in Virginia. Since more than three quarters of cancer cases are diagnosed in people ages 55 and over, the growing proportion of older Virginians signals a significant increase in future cancer incidence. Projecting the likely number of new cancer cases in the next three decades sets the stage for policy development and resource allocation appropriate to cancer’s impact on individuals, families, communities, employers, the Virginia workforce, and an already stressed health care industry scrambling to keep up with demand.
School Enrollment
Over the past 20 years, total enrollment in Virginia public schools has grown steadily—but highly unevenly—across the state. While the overall population grew in 71 percent of Virginia localities between 2008 and 2013, public school enrollment increased in only 31 percent, and a majority of school divisions reported enrollment declines. Learn more about school enrollment projections.
