Metro Atlanta’s population and jobs numbers are on the rise and some of the big increases in people and employment are coming in North Fulton County.

The Atlanta Regional Commission is projecting the metro region will add 2.5 million people, bringing the total population to 8 million. They will be drawn to the region by an increase of 1.5 million jobs by 2040. Nearly a quarter of all the new jobs will be in Fulton County — the region’s top employment center.

“So we expect (North Fulton) to continue to grow, but at a slower pace than it has,” said ARC Chairman Kerry Armstrong, who also serves as chairman of the North Fulton Community Improvement District.

According to the ARC, the corridor extending along Georgia 400 will record employment growth of 290,028 and a population surge of 569,223 by 2040.

North Fulton County has long been the place where company CEOs came to live and brought their companies here as well. Many of them are in the tech sector including healthcare information technology companies that have given Atlanta the title of the “Nation’s Capital of Health IT.”

The region is both affluent and well educated, according to Armstrong.

“It has a significantly high house hold income – about $89,000 is the median and that’s a big number,” said Armstrong. “That’s significantly higher than the region in general.”
