How do you determine which city is best for singles in Georgia anyways?

To give you the places in Georgia which are best for singles to find one another, we have to look at a handful of metrics. Of course, we want to measure the type of people who live in each city, and make some assumptions about what single people like.

So we researched the internet for a database that contains all that information.

How we crunched the numbers for the Peach State

We threw a lot of criteria at this one in order to get the best, most complete results possible. Using the 2013-2017 American Community Survey Census data produced for the state of Georgia, we looked at every single city in the state. We paid particular attention to:

  • Population density
  • % of population that’s male vs. female (closer to a 50-50 ratio is better)
  • % of households with kids
  • Median age
  • Number of unmarried people in each city

We then gave each city a Singles Score.

The higher the score, the better the city is for singles to find one another. We also limited our results to cities with populations over 10,000 people. For Georgia, that meant a total of 80 cities.

Read on to see why Statesboro is the talk of the town while Jefferson is probably a bit on the boring side.

Review Of Atlanta by HomeSnacks User

Atlanta is a great town. You will never run out of things to do no matter how many times you visit and if you live here, there is always something going on from festivals to awesome sporting events to farmers’ markets to shows. It is a mix of the good and bad and you have to be careful but it will be worth it if you just follow some simple personal safety and have a safe form of transportation.

Atlanta has more to do than you could ever do in a lifetime. There are events all the time from annual events like DragonCon and the Peachtree Road Race to sporting events such as the Falcons, Braves or the new Atlanta United. If you get tired of that, there are tons of museums and parks.

Atlanta does have some dangerous areas and there is a significant amount of crime so one has to be careful and mind your wallet and if you are considering using the Marta train system as a tourist, you may want to consider a safer form of travel such as car or Uber.
