About Us

OUR HISTORY

Data at your fingertips.

Welcome to GeorgiaDATA.org, Georgia’s central data repository. GeorgiaDATA provides the public with quick and easy access to Georgia county and state data. 

Recognizing the important role data plays in 21st-century decision-making and the need to quickly access data from a number of sources––all in one place––the Carl Vinson Institute of Government created GeorgiaDATA.org. 

The data provided are compiled from a variety of public sources and conveniently organized by county and topic. During the site’s initial launch, agriculture, demographics, economics, and education will be the first four topics available to our users. We will also be adding custom reporting functions, municipal data, and other data topics. 

GeorgiaDATA users can drill down by county or topic, visualize the data using maps and on-screen tools, and/or export selected data into Excel. If your needs include data analysis, forecasting, projections, or GIS services, the Carl Vinson Institute of Government can assist you. Contact us for more information.

Committed to helping communities make informed decisions.

For more than 30 years, planners, developers, and policymakers from across the state have turned to the Georgia County Guide for the demographic data needed to make informed decisions. The Georgia County Guide, jointly sponsored by the University of Georgia’s Cooperative Extension and the Carl Vinson Institute of Government, is an annual print publication that provides a collection of county-level data. 

In recent years, the printed data found in the Georgia County Guide have also been available online as the Georgia Statistics System. By providing electronic access to the County Guide data, decision-makers have had immediate access to critical data that have helped them make better-informed decisions. Historically, both the print and online data have proven to be an important tool for communities, business leaders, and elected officials.

Working together for a better Georgia.

GeorgiaDATA builds upon the rich history of the Georgia County Guide and consolidates the work of several units at the University of Georgia—the Carl Vinson Institute of Government, Cooperative Extension, and the Center for Agribusiness and Economic Development—to create a powerful, data-rich source of information for key decision makers in both the public and private sectors. 

In addition to hosting this comprehensive data source, the Carl Vinson Institute of Government has expert data analysts available to assist you. Use our Contact us form to request assistance.
