Figured I'd share the below... 

Metro Atlanta is the top place for relocating singles, according to relocation industry group Worldwide ERC and third-party employee relocation provider Primacy Relocation.

Atlanta ranked No. 1 on the groups' survey, the fourth annual "Best Cities for Relocating Singles." Atlanta is followed by New Haven, Conn.; Madison, Wis.; Nassau-Suffolk, N.Y.; and Raleigh, N.C.

The groups used statistical profiles of the largest 100 U.S. metro areas, zeroing in on the criteria most relevant to singles. This year's results incorporated new data from government and industry sources, including overall cost of living, availability of outdoor/adventure activities, and violent and property crime rates.

"We know that successfully assimilating into a new community facilitates a transferee's productivity," said Cris Collie, CEO of Worldwide ERC. "As the labor market continues to tighten, opportunities for talented and mobile employees expand, and companies seek more ways to successfully compete for talent, the focus on elements that make relocation more attractive to job candidates becomes more significant."
