Abstract (300 words maximum)

Georgia is a state with one of the faster growing populations in recent decades. This project analyzes migration to Georgia based on the 2019 American Community Survey 1-Year Estimates. Using ArcGIS Online, this project examines recent migration trends to the State of Georgia and explores some of the factors that contribute to these trends. People move to Georgia for a plethora of reasons, some being economic, political, or familial. Specifically, this project explores domestic (internal) migration within the United States to the state of Georgia, investigates potential reasons why people moved from other states such as Tennessee, Texas, Florida, South Carolina, and North Carolina (the five largest population changes). Some questions that have been asked are if the reason for change is because of previous election results and current political standings, home values/property taxes have gone up or down, religious differences, job offerings, and other various changes in a family or individual's life. The anticipated findings are that people moved to Georgia because they have found better opportunities regarding homes, jobs, and income. In conclusion, the project tells a story about why people are moving to Georgia and will explain some of those reasons in detail.

The Internal Migration of Georgia

Georgia is a state with one of the faster growing populations in recent decades. This project analyzes migration to Georgia based on the 2019 American Community Survey 1-Year Estimates. Using ArcGIS Online, this project examines recent migration trends to the State of Georgia and explores some of the factors that contribute to these trends. People move to Georgia for a plethora of reasons, some being economic, political, or familial.
