The Athens Wellbeing Project is an ongoing initiative to collect and share data on neighborhood conditions within the city. The goal is to allow community institutions--such as Clarke County schools and Athens-Clarke County Police--as well as local community groups to have access to reliable, wide ranging data on conditions across the county. These data will allow groups to focus on pressing needs and help coordinate actions across the city. This project is supported by a number of organizations, including Clarke County School District, Athens-Clarke County Unified Government, and the United Way of Northeast Georgia.
Initial survey data collection is currently underway. In Spring 2016, students in Dr. Jerry Shannon's Community GIS class collected a range of secondary data across several domains. Their findings are available below. We anticipate having an online interface to explore these data by the end of 2016.
