Population Projections

The Governor's Office of Planning and Budget is charged with the responsibility of preparing, maintaining, and furnishing official demographic data for the state (O.C.G.A. § 45-12-171). These projections are residential based, which provides a foundation for assessing future infrastructure and service needs, such as transportation planning, certificate of need, water planning, and other publicly funded projects.


These projections were prepared using the standard cohort component demographic methodology, relying upon recent historical fertility, migration, and age data. Using the 2013 Census estimates data, year-by-year projections for the state and counties are available through the year 2025, and in five-year increments through 2050. 

In 2015, OPB released state and county residential population projections for the years 2013 through 2050. The following year the rest of the series was released. These projections include state and county level projections by age, sex, and race using baseline data from the Census Bureau’s vintage 2013 Population Estimates.
