Ten trends

In Trends in America: Charting the Course Ahead (June 2005), the Council of State Governments (CSG) has identified 10 major long-term trends shaping our society, their implications for state governments, and policy options for state leaders to pursue. The 10 "change drivers" are: the aging of America, immigrants, the rise of suburbia, a technology- and service-based economy, globalization, the information revolution, privacy vs. security, resource management, polarized politics, and the larger role of the federal government. CSG's focus is on what they will mean for state officials over the next five years.
