Abstract (300 words maximum)

The city of Atlanta, Georgia has become an even bigger hub in the last few years than it was in the past. Many people are migrating to this area seeking the “big city” lifestyle. The city of Atlanta also offers residents an abundance of job opportunities, cultural diversity, and the cost of living is cheap compared to that of other major city areas. Atlanta is the ninth largest, and one of the fastest-growing metropolitan areas in the nation. From 2019-2020; 34,374 people was metro Atlanta’s net migration. But will Atlanta be able to hold all these people at the rate of inbound migration it experiences? How will the economy handle it? We can already see that the city is very overcrowded due to constant migration to the area. Also, as more people come in the prices of things in the city have begun to skyrocket. I want to investigate the cost of living in Atlanta and examine how the influx of inbound migration will impact it. The purpose of this research is to examine and assess the large rates of population growth, why people are moving here, where they are coming from, and how that will affect the city of Atlanta in the future.

Atlanta: Overcrowded and Overpriced

The city of Atlanta, Georgia has become an even bigger hub in the last few years than it was in the past. Many people are migrating to this area seeking the “big city” lifestyle. The city of Atlanta also offers residents an abundance of job opportunities, cultural diversity, and the cost of living is cheap compared to that of other major city areas. Atlanta is the ninth largest, and one of the fastest-growing metropolitan areas in the nation. From 2019-2020; 34,374 people was metro Atlanta’s net migration. But will Atlanta be able to hold all these people at the rate of inbound migration it experiences? How will the economy handle it? We can already see that the city is very overcrowded due to constant migration to the area. Also, as more people come in the prices of things in the city have begun to skyrocket.
