In the past five years Metro Atlanta has experienced growth on nearly every level. Economic development is certainly no exception. Attracted by the business-friendly environment, diverse pool of talent, and high-quality of life that the region offers, many corporations and businesses have made Atlanta their new home. For many years, the Metro Atlanta Chamber research team has maintained a comprehensive database of all new locations in the region using primary data collection. Records show that there have been nearly 400 new locations with over 45,370 new jobs in the 29-county region in the 2016 through 2020. The project examines the growth that these new locations have brought to metro Atlanta. It investigates the impact by analyzing the industries locating here, looking at job posting data from the companies, examining the change in the region’s occupational mix, and looking at the impact geo-spatially.
