WRONG!FAIL!!

Dalton,Georgia-Carpet Capitol of the World.2 of the largest carpet companies are headquartered there.
Quote:
Dalton is often referred to as the "Carpet Capital of the World", home to 150+ carpet plants. The industry employs more than 30,000 people in the Whitfield County area.[8] More than 90% of the functional carpet produced in the world today is made within a 65-mile radius of the city
Columbus MSA 292,795 -AFLAC,Carmike Cinemas,TSYS are just some of the Forturne ranked companies.Not to mention the School of the America and the U.S.Infantry headquarters at the 35,000 and growing Fort Benning.

Savannah MSA 343,092 - gets over 11million tourist a year.Miami gets 38million ,Atlanta 35m and Houston 31m for comparison sake.What cities the size or even larger than Savannah can make that claim other than Charleston?(Of course cities like Nashville and Memphis might be exceptions.)
Oh and the nation 4th largest and fastest growing port

Augusta MSA 539,154 -Home of the Masters,booming job market,Fort Gordon,the new NSA,The Medical College of Georgia.Also several regional operational headquarters for companies.Augusta is constantly ranked in several polls that indicate growth.

Quote:
The Medical College of Georgia, the state's only public health sciences graduate university, employs over 7,000 people. Along with University Hospital, the Medical District of Augusta employs over 25,000 people and has an economic impact of over $1.8 billion
Macon Warner Robins CSA 231,576-Robins AFB has the worldwide Headquarters for the Air Force Reserve,JSTARS and the Air Force Materiel Command Center.30,000 people are employed here.

Sorry but there are few states that have a many huge military installations,ports and huge sectors that employ so many people and also sereve as a vehicle for growth of those cities as well.

I'm no fan of A&M Bulldawg's rants at all, but I actually think he's right when he says "outside of Atlanta, Georgia is on the same level as the other states you've listed." You can easily demonstrate this with some metrics. Georgia's GDP minus metro Atlanta comes to $131.6 billion (2008 figures). Alabama's is $171.7 billion, SC's is $160.8 billion, and Mississippi's is $96.3 billion. Population figures would also be similar for Georgia (minus Atlanta) and those other states as well.

Well I see it this way:
GDP has a lot to with size.If you take Atlanta away as most would agree,Georgia's cities are a little smaller overall than those in the other states.Philly has a higher GDP but its usually ranked lower than Atlanta in many studies on Global prominence
If you take Georgia biggest city away then you have to take each of those states biggest city.Thats fair.I mean really its like fighting with one arm tied behind the back!
Take B-Ham from AL
Take N.O,from LA
Take Jackson from MS
Columbia from S.C.

North Carolina would probably be neck and neck or just ahead.

Also we have debated the issue of GDP as should it be the sole factor in how well a place stacks up/Its also more about the growth rates.What about incomes?Educational attainment?Home ownership?Poverty rates?

Example:

Augusta ,GA Mobile Jackson Columbia
Med.Income $45.372 45,217 $36,003 $39,589
Poverty Rates 16.8% 21.3% 23.5% 22.1%
Home ownership 69.9% 68.9% 69.9% 70.2%
BS Degree M22.0%F19.0 20/18% 27/26 26/28%
H.S w/o Diploma m21.%f22% 24/23 21/19 19/17

Columbus GA
Med.Income $41,244
Poverty Rates 16.7%
Home ownership 59.9%
BS Degree m20/17f
H.S w/o Diploma m22/25f

I know this is a small sample and I looking again for that info but even without Atlanta and those other states biggest cities GA leads.I admit it may not be by leaps and bounds,but it is a noticeable difference.
The poverty is especially noticeable in the difference in each state.The number back it too.Even the roads seem worse
