STATS OF THE WEEK: From Out & About to Down & Dirty

31 Mar

1) Atlanta has the most event-going residents.

Last week, Eventbrite released its list of “America’s Most Carpe Diem Cities.” Studying the number of events, including parties, music festivals, classes, seminars and more, that people attend (and other relevant factors), the event ticket sales company found Atlanta to be tops in the event-going category relative to its population.

2) Georgia is the No. 6 most valuable state in America by brand value.

According to the 2014 Brand Finance U.S. 500, there are only five other states ‘more valuable’ than the Peach State, which totals $106 billion. Georgia’s most valuable brand is The Coca-Cola Co., which totals $34 billion for the No. 10 U.S. brand overall.

3) Atlanta loves itself some sex!

According to a study by the Urban Institute’s Justice Policy Center, my city has the largest cash-based underground sex economy at $290 million a year. Can we Atlantans at least feel better knowing that only eight major cities were analyzed in the three-year research?
