We present preliminary results on the clustering properties of high-redshift galaxies selected from the Great Observatories Origins Deep Survey (GOODS). GOODS is gathering extremely deep, coordinated multiwavelength data from ground-based telescopes (VLT, Keck, Gemini, NOAO, Subaru) and from the Hubble, SIRTF, and Chandra space telescopes for studying the distant universe, and creating an archive for community research. The Hubble observations include an HST Treasury program of imaging with ACS that covers nearly 1/10 of a square degree in four bands (B, V, i, z) to within ~0.7 mags of the WFPC2-HDF's depth. Sample of galaxies at 2 < z < 6 have been selected from the GOODS optical and near-IR catalogs using a combination of color criteria, new and archival spectroscopic redshifts, as well as photometric redshifts. We present initial measures of the clustering properties and spatial abundances of high-redshift galaxies from low-order statistics.

Ground-based imaging data were taken at ESO 2.2m, NTT, VLT, and NOAO 4m telescopes and made publicly available.
