The North Carolina Association of County Commissioners is pleased to share the 2021 County Map Book, compiling the most relevant North Carolina county data maps into one publication. These data and map visualizations highlight demographic, economic, health, and educational information from North Carolina’s 100 counties.
The included categories and data indicators were selected based on research at the county level, recommendations from county officials and staff, and timely policy issues. As the state continues to manage the public health pandemic, counties are also navigating new ways to provide programs and services to communities, and a selection of this year’s maps reflect these efforts.
The book is produced each year with the hope the included information will help provide context and promote analysis for decisions at the local level in counties across the state.
