Applied Demography

We provide Georgia leaders at all levels of government with regularly updated and consistent population data, which are key factors for informing policy decisions, from aging to zoning. Our Applied Demography program combines local trends with forecasting national, state and regional population changes. The resulting data and projections fill the gap between information compiled by the U.S. Census Bureau and what local governments collect. Our Applied Demography program offers tools to approach population issues by combining quantitative approaches with methods borrowed from social or other sciences. This application helps governments understand how specific population changes project into the future. For example, government leaders can prepare for a growing school system, plan water resources, or collect age and education data to attract business and industry. Our Applied Demography program can provide the data necessary for government leaders to plan wisely for their citizens. homepage is a central data source providing quick and easy access to Georgia county and state data compiled from various public sources. The website is conveniently organized by county and topic, allowing users to drill down and visualize data using maps and on-screen tools. Selected data may also be exported into Excel.

Demographic Projections and Analysis

Our Applied Demography Program provides governments with data-driven decision tools and analysis, including population projections and estimates for sub-county geographies, municipalities, school systems, service regions and special populations. The Applied Demography Program provides data analytics and visualization services to cities, counties, state agencies and regional governments. We help governments analyze administrative data using innovative demographic, statistical, geospatial, and econometric tools and methods.

Community Profiles

Community profiles include timely data and analysis about demographics, workforce, employers and education outcomes. Such information is essential to strategic planning and provides a springboard for projects. We use data published by national and state sources, including the U.S. Census Bureau, the Bureau of Economic Analysis, the Bureau of Labor Statistics and the Georgia Department of Labor, to name a few. We also purchase data from EMSI, a respected provider of labor market data. Our deliverables include slides using maps, graphs and other visualizations for meetings; project reports with visual and tabular data; and online, interactive visualizations. We also use Qlik, an online tool, to allow partners to interact with relevant data.
