  • 2. Population Estimates: Recent History Source: ARC Population Estimates Program Population Growth The 10-county Atlanta region added 40,100 new residents between April 1, 2012 and April 1, 2013. This growth is essentially the same experienced during each of the last five years, meaning that growth is still muted when compared to the booming years of the 1990s and early 2000s. As the table shows, the average annual growth since 2010 is less than half of the annual growth experienced between 1990 and 2010. 1970 1980 1990 2000 2010 2012 2013 Average Annual Change 2010- 2013 Average Annual Change 1990- 2010 Atlanta Region 1,500,823 1,896,182 2,557,800 3,429,379 4,107,750 4,179,500 4,219,600 37,283 77,498 Cherokee 31,059 51,699 91,000 141,903 214,346 220,800 223,300 2,985 6,167 Clayton 98,126 150,357 184,100 236,517 259,424 262,300 263,700 1,425 3,766 Cobb 196,793 297,718 453,400 607,751 688,078 699,500 707,500 6,474 11,734 DeKalb 415,387 483,024 553,800 665,865 691,893 700,700 706,600 4,902 6,905 Douglas 28,659 54,573 71,700 92,174 132,403 133,900 134,700 766 3,035 Fayette 11,364 29,043 62,800 91,263 106,567 107,500 108,200 544 2,188 Fulton 605,210 589,904 670,800 816,006 920,581 936,100 945,400 8,273 12,489 Gwinnett 72,349 166,808 356,500 588,448 805,321 823,100 832,200 8,960 22,441 Henry 23,724 36,309 59,200 119,341 203,922 209,500 211,300 2,459 7,236 Rockdale 18,152 36,747 54,500 70,111 85,215 86,100 86,700 495 1,536 City of Atlanta 495,039 424,922 415,200 416,474 420,003 421,600 422,800 932 240
  • 3. Population Estimates: Recent History Source: ARC Population Estimates Program Population Growth Since 2010, Gwinnett County has led the region in average annual growth, adding 9,000 new residents each year. This growth, like all jurisdictions, is well below the average annual change experienced between 1990 and 2010. As for last year, Fulton added the most new residents, up 9,300, then Gwinnett (+9,100), Cobb (+8,000) and DeKalb (+5,900). 1970 1980 1990 2000 2010 2012 2013 Average Annual Change 2010- 2013 Average Annual Change 1990- 2010 Atlanta Region 1,500,823 1,896,182 2,557,800 3,429,379 4,107,750 4,179,500 4,219,600 37,283 77,498 Cherokee 31,059 51,699 91,000 141,903 214,346 220,800 223,300 2,985 6,167 Clayton 98,126 150,357 184,100 236,517 259,424 262,300 263,700 1,425 3,766 Cobb 196,793 297,718 453,400 607,751 688,078 699,500 707,500 6,474 11,734 DeKalb 415,387 483,024 553,800 665,865 691,893 700,700 706,600 4,902 6,905 Douglas 28,659 54,573 71,700 92,174 132,403 133,900 134,700 766 3,035 Fayette 11,364 29,043 62,800 91,263 106,567 107,500 108,200 544 2,188 Fulton 605,210 589,904 670,800 816,006 920,581 936,100 945,400 8,273 12,489 Gwinnett 72,349 166,808 356,500 588,448 805,321 823,100 832,200 8,960 22,441 Henry 23,724 36,309 59,200 119,341 203,922 209,500 211,300 2,459 7,236 Rockdale 18,152 36,747 54,500 70,111 85,215 86,100 86,700 495 1,536 City of Atlanta 495,039 424,922 415,200 416,474 420,003 421,600 422,800 932 240

As you can see, each county “took off” at different points of time.

  • 7. Population Estimates: 10-County Atlanta Region Source: ARC Population Estimates Program What Comes Around… The annual growth from 2012 to 2013 almost exactly matches the average annual growth during the 1970s. In fact, growth over the past 40 years has been quite symmetrical. As the chart shows, the 1990s saw the greatest growth, while growth during the 1980s was similar to the growth during the 2000s. 0 10,000 20,000 30,000 40,000 50,000 60,000 70,000 80,000 90,000 100,000 10-County Atlanta Region 1970 to 1980 1980 to 1990 1990 to 2000 2000 to 2010 2012 to 2013
  • 8. Population Estimates: Historical Series Source: Census Population Growth Through The Decades The 1990s were booming, as the 10-county Atlanta region added more than 900,000 new residents during the decade, by far the largest net gain in population when compared to other decades spanning back to the 1930s. On a percentage basis, however, the 1950s had the largest gains, growing by some 38 percent between 1950 and 1960. 0.0% 5.0% 10.0% 15.0% 20.0% 25.0% 30.0% 35.0% 40.0% % Change 30-40 % Change 40-50 % Change 50-60 % Change 60-70 % Change 70-80 % Change 80-90 % Change 90-2000 % Change 00-2010 Percent Change by Decade: 10-County ARC 0 100,000 200,000 300,000 400,000 500,000 600,000 700,000 800,000 900,000 1,000,000 # Change 30-40 # Change 40-50 # Change 50-60 # Change 60-70 # Change 70-80 # Change 80-90 # Change 90-2000 # Change 00-2010 Raw Change by Decade: 10-County ARC

Permits are on the rise, but again, just rising slowly. There were almost 11,000 residential units permitted in 2012, 4,500 more than in 2011. But, considering the region averaged around 35,000 new residential units each year since 1980, permit activity is still way down. 0 10,000 20,000 30,000 40,000 50,000 60,000 Building Permits: 1980 - 2012
