C2ER Award Series Webinar: 

Competitive Market Assessment

September 10, 2019  

2:00 PM - 3:00 PM EST

The state of Georgia is consistently ranked as a top state for doing business, and Georgia Power's C&ED group has had record project announcements, job numbers, and capital investment figures over the last three years. All signs are pointing to Georgia as one of the top states for economic development, but as researchers, we needed to see some hard numbers to back this up.

Using Conway Analytics, we pulled data on all the large project locations (those with 500 or more jobs) from 2015 to the present that located in the United States. Using Tableau, we analyzed the data to evaluate how Georgia stacked up against its competitors in Project Activity, Total Jobs Announced, and Capital Investment. Join our webinar to see our results and how we hope to use this data to inform future economic development strategies.
