South Poll

Your thoughts on sweet tea, the SEC, stereotypes, and saying “Yes, ma’am”

Our “How Southern Is Atlanta?” survey ran on in July 2012 and was completed by 645 Atlanta magazine subscribers and registered users of our website. Most respondents (64 percent) were in the 25–50 age range, most (77 percent) were female, and most (86 percent) identified themselves as white, which pretty much parallels the magazine’s general readership. The majority (64 percent) of respondents were born in the South; 35 percent in Georgia (and of those almost two-thirds were that rarest of breeds: Atlanta natives).
