The 10 Snobbiest Places In Mississippi For 2023

The Snobbiest places in Mississippi are Madison and Flowood for 2023 based on Saturday Night Science.

There are all types when it comes to being a snob in Mississippi. You’ve got your Wine Snobs, Book Snobs, and, of course, Clothes Snobs. Then there are the Technology Snobs, Car Snobs, and yes, even City Snobsas in, I’m better than you because I live in (insert snooty city here).

How can we tell which Mississippi cities are the snobbiest? By measuring snobby things, that’s how.

We used Saturday Night Science to look at things like expensive homes, high incomes, and overly educated populations by city in Mississippi. These are the criteria you’d argue with a friend over a foodie dinner about who’s snobbier.

After analyzing 62 of the state’s most populous areas over 5,000 people, we came up with this ranking of the ten snobbiest places in the state of Mississippi.

The Mississippian in these places aren’t snobby, they just know they’re better than you.

Don’t freak out.

What’s the snobbiest place in Mississippi? The snobbiest place in Mississippi is Madison based on the data. If we had their wealth and lifestyle, we’d probably be a little snobby, too.

The most laid back? That would be Columbia.

We’re not so full of ourselves as to make this ranking up from nowhere. So here’s a look at the top ten and more on how we did it. And if you’re curious, Mississippi is the 47th snobbiest in the United States.

Methodology: How we determined the snobbiest cities in the Magnolia State

Do you think wed just come up with this list willy-nilly? Not a chance – we only use Saturday Night Science around here.

We gathered up all of the places in Mississippi with populations of 5,000 people or more. This left us with a total of 62 places. Then, we looked at each place in terms of these snoot-er-iffic criteria (And no, its not a word. English snob.):

  • Median home price (Higher is snobbier)
  • Median household income (Higher is snobbier)
  • Percent of population with a college degree (Higher is snobbier)

Turned out this simple criteria was much better at sniffing out the snobby places then more snobby criteria like:

  • Libaries per capita (Higher is snobbier)
  • Museums per capita (Higher is snobbier)
  • Private schools per capita (Higher is snobbier)

From there, we ranked each of our 62 places in each category with scores from one to 62. We then averaged each places ranking into one overall score, where the lowest score went to the snobbiest place in Mississippi. So lets all flip a table in honor of Madison (with our pinkies up, of course.)

Before you get upset and ruin your blowout or something drastic here, lets remember that this is all in good fun. Would we live in one of these 10 places if we had the chance? Of course, we would.

And it’s not like your real estate agent would ever point out how snobby the town you’re moving to is. We’re here to keep you grounded, even if you’re wearing a monocle.

There You Have It – Now That You’re On Your High Horse

When it comes to snobbery, these places in Mississippi are heading ever upward. Residents in these communities are well educated, well paid, and appear to have all the sophisticated culture and entertainment of an Ernst Lubitsch film right at their fingertips.

Not that there’s anything wrong with that.

If you’re also curious enough, here are the most laid back places in Mississippi, according to science:

  1. Columbia
  2. Clarksdale
  3. Kosciusko

  1. Um, Gulf Park Estates is a neighborhood, not a city. The city is Ocean Springs. And that I would agree is probably one of the snobbiest towns in Mississippi based on the snobby criteria

  2. You said last week Kosciusko was the 7th dumbest, but based off money, we are 3rd snobbiest, so we are stupid snobs? Really? A bunch of dumb people sure do make a lot of money and have expensive houses…

  3. You obviously didnt do enough research because Gulf Park Estates is NOT a city lol…its just a neighborhood…

  4. I see you missed Oxford, home of the Northern-Mississippi Memphis-adjunct BowTie University, Ole Miss.

    No true list of the smarmiest, most self-centered and snobbiest places in Mississippi is complete without it.
