North Carolina Regional, Economic and Population Data

The Progress Board plans to provide a wealth of information on data trends (both historical and projected) that impact public needs and resources, as well as our ability to achieve our strategic targets.  The GIS maps posted here were created by students from the Warren Wilson College's new GIS lab, under the supervision of Global Studies Chair David Abernathy, Ph.D., and leadership of Rebecca DaVanon. Warren Wilson College is an independent, accredited, four-year liberal arts college in Asheville, NC, that awards the Bachelor of Arts and Bachelor of Science degrees in a variety of disciplines and the Master of Fine Arts degree in creative writing.  It is one of seven work colleges in the nation where students each work 15 hours a week in crews that support every aspect of campus operations and address issues of social and environmental justice while they complete their graduation requirement of 100 hours of service.
