33 Places Young People Are Moving


To identify the counties where young people are moving, 24/7 Wall St. considered the share of 18-34 year olds that had moved from one U.S. county to another in 2016. To avoid selecting only small college towns, we excluded counties where the share of residents currently enrolled in college exceeds the national average percentage of approximately 28%. These figures are based on five-year estimates from the U.S. Census Bureau’s American Community Survey through 2015. Also from the Census Bureau we considered median home values for each county based on five-year estimates. 2016 unemployment rates also came from the Census Bureau and are part of the Quarterly Census of Employment and Wages.
