1.8 Million Population within 45 minutes
Although Jackson County is still largely rural, the eastern part of the County is considered to be the edge of Atlanta’s sprawl. Jackson County has a population of 67,000 and Gwinett County (located immediately to the east) has a population of 1,000,000. Just a few miles makes a BIG difference in this area.
Projected Population Growth
Over the next 5 to 10 years, Jackson County is projected to “grow like a weed.” The entire Northeast Georgia Region has an incredible business climate that continues to attract several multi-billion dollar projects. In late 2018, SK Innovation announced they had selected Jackson County as the new North American base of operations for their SK Battery America division. This project alone created over 2,000 jobs. All of the economic growth has made accurately projecting population growth very difficult, if not impossible.
