Georgia Data Innovation Hub
Georgia's Demographic Trends

June 22 | 11 a.m. — noon

Join us for a webinar on June 22 from 11 a.m. to noon to learn about Georgia's demographic trends.

Georgia was among the fastest-growing states in the United States over the past decade, with a population increase of more than one million people. An aging population and regionally uneven population growth are critical demographic trends for leaders to consider. For example, one out of every four Georgians are over 55 today, but that demographic made up only 15% of the state's population in 2000. Additionally, half of the state’s growth during the past decade was concentrated in five counties, while another 68 lost population. This session will highlight these trends and others unfolding across the Peach State. 

Anyone interested in data analytics, visualization, data-driven decision making, program evaluation, GIS, or predictive analytics will benefit from this discussion.
