We help you carry out your goals

Carolina Demography is a non-partisan team of population scientists working for the people of North Carolina.

For over a decade, we have provided leaders across North Carolina with up-to-date, accurate data on how NC’s population is changing. As the applied research unit of the Carolina Population Center at UNC-Chapel Hill, we know how to find the data you need to answer the questions you have about the populations you serve. Local and state governments, foundations, businesses, researchers, and not-for profit organizations serving the state of North Carolina partner with Carolina Demography to translate complex information based on the questions you need to answer.
