Athens-Clarke County: A City of Prosperity and Poverty

The Clarke County can be found in the state of Georgia. According to the 2010 census, the total population of the county reached 116, 14. The seat of government of Clarke County is Athens, which is described as a consolidated city-county. By definition, a consolidated city-county is the combination of the county and a city in a single unified jurisdiction. It has both the responsibilities and powers of the county, which is a state’s administrative division, and a city, a municipal corporation. The Athens Clarke County is part of the Athens-Clarke County, Georgia Metropolitan Statistical Area, and also acts as its principal city. In addition, the Athens-Clarke County is the 6th largest city in the state of Georgia.

According to the poverty data, Clarke County is ranked as the 7th county with the highest poverty rate among 159 counties in the United States. It is a fact that the residents of Athens-Clarke County are among Georgia’s poorest. However, they seem to be very healthy as compared to other impoverished people in other counties or cities, for that matter. Nationally, Athens is ranked 5th in terms of poverty rate.

It is indeed a paradox for a city so poor to be wealthy of health. In a recent study in 2013, Clarke County bagged the 14th spot among the best health rates in the state of Georgia. While the statistics hold the truth, the demographers and other researchers tried to rationalize the results in the hope of clarifying things. During their discussions, they came up with three possible explanations to support the findings about poverty and health.

The first explanation is that Athens-Clarke County is still a young city because 74% of its residents fall between the age of 19 and 64 years old. With only 8% of the population are in their retirement years (65 and above), the morbidity and mortality rate is low as compared to the rest of the cities and counties in Georgia. With a lower mortality and morbidity rate, only lesser people get sick; thus, the best health rate. The second explanation is the high number of educated people in the Athens-Clarke County. People with education tend to be smart in making healthy choices in life. The county has weird income and education ratios, since there are higher education levels despite the low income levels. The third explanation is that Athens-Clarke County is a promising medical hub. Its regional health centers appeal to commuters. Furthermore, free clinics are prevalent to service the uninsured.
