Who Goes to UGA?

Yes, population growth matters. Below, me playing with a scatterplot with population growth of each Georgia county on the x-axis (bottom) and the percentage growth in the number of students sent to UGA on the y-axis. As you'd expect, the more the population growth of a county, the higher it is on the growth of students from that county who enrolled at UGA.

Yeah, this is me prepping for classes, re-learning Tableau. Roll your mouse over, or click, on a blue dot to see which county it is. Remember that percentages lie here. A tiny county may have sent 1 kid in 2003, for example, and two kids in 2013 -- meaning a 100 percent change.
