Atlanta Metropolitan Area Population Geography Trends

The Atlanta metropolitan area is among the fastest growing urban regions in the United States. This project focuses on recent population geography trends in the Atlanta Metropolitan area and the counties that surround the Atlanta region, analyzing characteristics that have influenced population change and how much the area will continue to grow. The project also focuses on other socio-economic facets of the region, including household median income in the counties surrounding the Atlanta area and what is causing people to want to live in certain areas of Atlanta. The research focuses on investigating what has caused population change and demographic shifts in the Atlanta metro area and the surrounding counties in the past ten years, what areas of the Atlanta metro area are most populated, and what counties have grown most rapidly throughout the years. Researching associated socio-economic indicators, such as household income in the region, will be key in uncovering what has caused the major demographic shift in the last ten years, and will help narrow down what counties are the least, middle, and most expensive areas in which to live. Applied results will help uncover more in depth information as to what influences recent population change in the Atlanta metro area and how and why the area will continuing to keep growing in the future.
