What: The State of the Community Report is an annual event featuring a comprehensive presentation with the latest data on the well-being of Greater Chapel Hill-Carrboro across social, economic, and environmental indicators.
When: This event was presented live from the Graduate Hotel on Thursday, September 10, 2020.
Top Takeaway: "Greater Chapel Hill-Carrboro is one of the healthiest, wealthiest, and best educated communities in the state, but COVID is having a negative economic impact on local businesses and racial disparities persist."
