Abstract (300 words maximum)

This study focuses on how a potential resident of Georgia in the area North of Atlanta may choose the best location in which to reside. This project is narrowed down to five cities along Highway 400 as the study area. The cities are Roswell, Cumming, Dunwoody, Alpharetta, and Sandy Springs. The factors that prospective residents may base their decision on includes three core attributes as follows: the population percentage of each city by census block, typical average commute times of each city, median household income, and average per capita income. This information has been gathered from the U.S. Census Bureau data in 2020 and from Esri’s ArcGIS Living Atlas. I chose the area along Georgia Highway 400 because there are quite a few corporate headquarters and regional hub locations along that route. The conclusions drawn from this study can be somewhat subjective, but I plan to point out which city out of these five popular cities may be the most advantageous to live in based on the chosen attributes.
