Director of Demographic Projections
Justin Silhavy is Director of Demographic Projections for Population and Survey Analysts (PASA), a demographic firm that projects student enrollment for school districts across Texas. Mr. Silhavy fuses his experience in urban planning, land development, and Geographic Information Systems (GIS) to accurately forecast housing growth and its impact on school district enrollment. He approaches every project by interviewing elected officials, municipal planning departments, home builders, land developers, and other local organizations involved in housing and economic development. Along with historical knowledge of the built environment and economic development practices, Mr. Silhavy also studies local demographic trends such as growth in non-student populations (baby-boomers, millennials, etc.) and shifts in employment by sector and other economic trends to build a full understanding of the enrollment growth potential of each school district.
