Atlanta in 2030 by the (ARC)
Here is some interesting info I found if you havent found it already sry if its a double thread.
The Atlanta Regional Commission (ARC) recently held its annual State of the Region Breakfast where it examined the “Shape of Things to Come.” For more information, go to the ATLANTA REGIONAL COMMISSION WEBSITE
Looking to the year 2030, here are some highlights of the shape of things to come:
Population in the metro area will increase by 2.3 million between 2000 and 2030 for a total of 6,005,288 residents.
Jobs will increase by 1.2 million between 2000 and 2030 for a total of 3,310,004.
Because of the aging of the baby-boom generation, the median age of the area's population will increase from 32.2 years in 2000 to 36.5 years in 2030. Large numbers of young, job-seeking in-migrants, however, will keep median age in below that of the nation's (39.0 years in 2030).
Gwinnett County will add nearly 400,000 residents to lead the region in population growth. Fulton County ranks second with an increase of 320,844, followed by Henry, up 251,189.
Fulton County, adding 294,821 jobs, and Gwinnett, up 229,569, will lead in employment growth. Cobb ranks third with an increase of 181,866. Together these three counties will account for nearly two-thirds of the new jobs.
Henry and Paulding counties rank first and second in average annual growth rates for both population and employment over the 30 year forecast period. Forsyth, Paulding and Cherokee will each grow by more than 150 percent by 2030.
Douglas and Fayette counties are shedding their reputation as small, exurban enclaves. The opening of Arbor Place Mall in 1999 signaled Douglas's arrival as a suburban growth center. Fayette County, though only one of two counties with no direct freeway access, will almost triple its job base by 2030, giving it close to 100,000 jobs.

Bloomberg quipped. "I always thought New York was the capital of the country."
