As far as I can tell, from the state building code, and discussions confirm, in Georgia for residential housing doors can swing in or out.  Min 36" main door, whatever suits the builder/owner.   Discussions confirm that new style hinges are not really more difficult to break into with either swing direction.   Fire department comment confirms out-swing doors are harder to break down in an emergency.

But swing out doors enable people to leave a building faster & safer should there be an emergency, say like...a fire. Down here, it's rare you see a house with entrance doors that swing in, unless it's an extremely old house.
