Atlanta, GA Neighborhoods
Uploaded on Fri, Nov. 12 2021 (map source)
Note that the population and housing unit totals for this dataset are both more than 4% lower
than the Census Bureau's published totals for the entire city of Atlanta. This is because this map, sourced from
the city's GIS department, simply leaves out many Atlanta Census blocks. At this time, we are not able to provide
population data for the "missing" blocks, although one could use the block assignment file on this page and data
from Census to "fill in the blanks."
How to use these Neighborhood Data Files
This map shows areas that aren't represented in the Census Bureau's standard geographies. Data is computed for these areas by assigning Census blocks to the areas where the center point (“internal point”) of the blocks fall, and then totalling the block-level data as reported by Census.
While this is a standard method which generally works well, this process can be imprecise, missing blocks that a local person would recognize as part of a neighborhood, or including blocks which are outside of the mapped area, such as in a neighboring city.
Without local knowledge, we can't make accurate adjustments to this automated process. You should treat this data as approximate—suitable for making general observations but not for precise comparisons.
