Also, the topography and climate in Atlanta is not as much of a shock as what can be found in the Texas cities, especially Dallas.
Well Texas doesn't get many New Yorkers because of your first point which is the main point and it's most likely the main reason. Texas usually gets Californians.

Not necessarily, but we've already talked about this.

Also, it depends on where you are in NY and what your skill set is in terms of work. Upstate NY is more affordable than Downstate and interests is another factor to consider.

Here's an interesting list: http://www.forbes.com/2009/11/30/cit...res_chart.html

However, that may not be the case if you take the number of people relocating and compare it to the total city or state population. The ratio of "Atlanta Relocators" to the total city or state population may be higher for other cities or states.
Quality post!

I think that they like it down here, but they are always complaining about it. I think that it's just the New Yorker in them!

I can't speak for those other cities, but Huntsville was being overrun with Californians when I left. Presumably because of the technology base. It's a real bummer, because I want to go back as soon as possible and I fear that with all those Californians coming in us natives will be priced out of the market, much as we've been priced out by New Yorkers coming here.
