Title: An economic analysis of Georgia's black belt counties
Author: Doherty, Brigid A.; McKissick, John C.
Abstract: As with many states, Georgia has historically had areas of high poverty among its counties. In Georgia, and in the Southeast, counties with high poverty levels have been labeled “black belt” counties. This paper dissects the economies of black belt counties and compares them with non-black belt counties. The main thesis of this paper is to determine the ability of black belt counties to be economically competitive.
