The Strategic Community Investment (SCI) Report includes data from reliable sources such as the Atlanta Police Department, Fulton and DeKalb County Tax Office and other sources to help draw a picture of the neighborhood characteristics and opportunities. The report was coordinated and compiled by APD Solutions, LLC for the City of Atlanta.

Below are links to the various types of raw data collected and used to complete the SCI Report. Please see the Neighborhood Conditions Report and the SCI Report for a full description of the methodology used to compile and analyze the raw data below.

  • The Atlanta SCI Dataset 2013 is the dataset used as the basis of the study. It includes 160,207 parcel records of which roughly 144,000 are residential. The file is organized by parcel ID and contains parcel information from the 2010 Fulton County and 2009 DeKalb County tax digest, housing condition information, and limited real estate transaction data from MetroStudy. Metrostudy data was used to source real estate transaction records for the neighborhood districts within the City of Atlanta. For the purposes of the SCI Housing Study, Metrostudy was used primarily to identify distressed assets and as a value added supplement provided an account of electronic deed records for the last single transaction of record associated with a residential property. The extent of the supplementary transaction data is city-wide and spanned a time period from 1901-2012 representing a comprehensive listing of foreclosures, new sales, REO Sales, and resales. Given that the city has 143,888 residential properties, Metrostudy cites the following reasons for the current number of transactions available in electronic deed format (130,261) falling short of the current residential parcel count:
    A) Deed records that are not available in an electronic format
    B) Bulk property sales
    C) Lot consolidations
    D) Unrecorded property ownership transfers
    E) Sales coding irregularities, etc.
