Top 15 Cities Where Millennials are Moving

Two weeks ago I talked about where the best cities are for young professionals based on a whole range of factors. Today we’re going to look at census data and find out where they’re actually moving to. So does our behavior match those standards? Sort of. There are several matches from last week’s list but the metropolitan area that added the most millennials since 2010 has been Washington DC which has had a net gain of about 12,000 people born between 1980 and 2000. That 12,000 figure is very revealing too because it signifies that people are moving much less often than they used to. Part of it is due to the recession but part of it is due to changes in the economy as a whole with more and more jobs available that can be done from anywhere. If you look back to the 1970s about 20 percent of households reported that they have moved recently while today that number is only at 12 percent. But I digress, here is the list of the top fifteen metropolitan areas with the biggest increases in their number of young professionals:

1. Washington, DC
2. Denver, CO
3. Portland, OR
4. Houston, TX
5. Austin, TX
6. San Francisco, CA
7. Seattle, WA
8. Riverside, CA
9. Dallas, TX
10. Charlotte, NC
11. Minneapolis, MN
12. Oklahoma City, OK
13. San Antonio, TX
14. Kansas City, MO
15. New Orleans, LA
