40 Places Young People Are Moving

Every year, tens of millions of Americans change residences — some 3.2% move to a new county, and 2.3% move to a new state. Young college- and career-bound people tend to move more, and millennials are almost twice as likely to move counties as the average American.

Young people tend to move for a variety of reasons, including work, school, or to be closer to friends and family. In some parts of the country, young people are arriving at rates more than five times greater than the national average.

To determine the 40 places where young people are moving to, 24/7 Wall St. reviewed millennial migration to U.S. counties using data from the U.S. Census Bureau’s American Community Survey. We ranked the counties based on the number of 25 to 34-year-olds who moved there from a different county in 2016 as a share of the total county population.
