Finding the right data can be a challenge. We’re here to help.
Thousands of data sources and retrieval tools are available from statistical agencies, educational institutions and the private sector. We’ve cataloged some of the best and most popular resources and, in some cases, shared information about how best to use them.
Population Projections for Incorporated Areas in TennesseeJuly 29, 2021-Population projections for Tennessee's 345 cities and towns aren't readily available. So we leveraged the Boyd Center's county-level population projections and Census Bureau estimates to create a simple approach that can be replicated by communities across the state.
How is Tennessee’s economy fairing compared to the US? What about the performance of counties and regions of the state? We offer a dashboard of leading indicators for the state and a report showing the latest county and regional information.
