Sommaire

Population

En 2001, la population était de 42 947 habitants. Le Garioch a vu sa population s'accroître rapidement grâce à sa proximité avec la ville d'Aberdeen. La croissance de la population, ainsi que des services et emplois qui en découlent, ont été anticipées par l'agrandissement de la route A96.

Economie

Il s'agit d'une zone essentiellement agricole, mais elle dépend aussi fortement de l'économie d'Aberdeen, et des ressources en gaz et pétrole. Le Garioch a un certain potentiel pour le tourisme, grâce entre autres à son héritage archéologique.
