Study says four N. Fulton cities are among most successful in Georgia


Milton residents now have another thing to brag about.

According to a study done by Zippia.com – a website that bills itself as a “career expert” – Milton is the most successful city in the state of Georgia. Zippia’s raking accounted for only cities with a population of more than 5,000 people.

So, what kind of data did the site use to get this result? It measured each city’s poverty level, median household income and unemployment rate.
