DID YOU KNOW THESE FACTS ABOUT GEORGIA?


  • The 2010 US Census reported 9,687,653 residents, making Georgia the ninth most populous state.

  • From 2007 to 2008, 14 of Georgia's counties ranked among the nation's 100 fastest-growing, second only to Texas. Georgia is known as the Peach State and the Empire State of the South. Atlanta is the capital and the most populous city.

  • Historically, about half of Georgia's population was composed of African Americans who, prior to the Civil War, were almost exclusively enslaved. The Great Migration of hundreds of thousands of blacks from the rural South to the industrial North from 1914–1970 reduced the African American population.

  • According to census estimates, Georgia ranks third among the states in terms of the percent of the total population that is African American (after Mississippi and Louisiana) and third in numerical Black population after New York and Florida.

  • Georgia ranks #38 as best states to live.  Source

  • Percentage of black-owned firms, 13.4%

  • 51.5% of Georgians are female and 48.4% are male.

  • Today, African Americans remain the most populous race in many rural counties in middle, east-central, southwestern, and Low Country Georgia, as well as in the city of Atlanta and its southern suburbs.

  • Georgia's 2007 total gross state product was $396 billion. Its Per Capita personal income for 2007 puts it 37th in the nation at $33,499.

  • Georgia high schools (grades nine through twelve) are required to administer a standardized, multiple choice End of Course Test, or EOCT, in each of eight core subjects including Algebra I, Geometry, U.S. History, Economics, Biology, Physical Science, Ninth Grade Literature and Composition, and American Literature and Composition.

  • The majority of Georgia is primarily a humid subtropical climate. Hot and humid summers are typical, except at the highest elevations. Georgia is one of the leading states in frequency of tornadoes, though they rarely are stronger than F1.
