Equity Data for Southern States


In partnership with E Pluribus Unum and to support a cohort of Southern state legislators working to advance racial and economic equity, the National Equity Atlas produced a series of data snapshots for six states in the South. In addition to key Atlas indicators on demographics, economic vitality, readiness, connectedness, and the economic benefits of equity, they also include additional customized indicators related to priority equity issues in the region:

  • Extreme economic insecurity
  • Student debt
  • Youth incarceration
  • Adverse childhood experiences
  • Covid vaccination rates
  • Voter registration and turnout
  • Residential segregation

You can download data decks for Alabama, Georgia, Louisiana, Mississippi, North Carolina, and Tennessee.
