Congestion in the Washington area is examined and statistical data on population are reviewed to show the number of people and vehicles in the Washington area. Local governments of the Washington area have been among the leaders in the national trend toward the development of growth management programs. The fact that local governments, regional planning agencies, citizen organizations, and private enterprise groups have expressed support for the development of metropolitan growth policy is analyzed. The impact of the different growth patterns and policies are viewed along with the varied social indicators used in impact analysis.
