Atlanta Metro Booming Update 3

Hello again.


Since my last update, I have collected all the demographic data that I will be using for this project. The IPUMS database from NHGIS proved invaluable in this task and I am indebted to that service. The data I collected are organized by census tracts, which are geographical divisions within counties that the census uses for greater geographic granularity. The data have attributes for race, gender, age, income, and a few more things that will allow me to analyze trends throughout the Atlanta region.


I will soon begin creating maps from this data to kickstart the analysis based on transportation infrastructure!
