Chicago is one of the hottest places in the country for young people, but a new study shows more millennials leaving the city than moving to it.
The Brookings Institution learned that between 2012 and 2017, Chicago had a net loss of 13,757 millennials, while rating a 23.7% millennial share of the city’s total population in 2015.
According to the Brookings Institute, millennials are now the largest adult generation in the United States, and due to their valuable attributes — their education, diversity, unbounded optimism, and energy — they are highly sought after by communities all over the country. Nationwide, millennial population grew nationally by 4.7 percent during the decade’s first half.
Previously, the Brookings Institution discovered that in 2010 to 2015 the areas with the lowest millennial growth were located in the industrial North and Midwest, including Chicago, St. Louis, Milwaukee, and Syracuse along with the Ohio areas of Toledo, Youngstown, and Dayton. Also on the lowest millennial growth list were Salt Lake City and Jackson, Miss. Only one metropolitan area — Birmingham, Alabama — exhibited a decline in millennials from 2010 to 2015.
The Brookings Institute found from 2010 to 2015 the 10 fastest-growing areas, with millennial growth rates exceeding 10 percent were in the South or West.
In December 2018, Bloomberg analysis of US Census data reported that the daily net migration of people of all age groups for Chicago was -156. The statistic showed a higher negative daily migration rate than Los Angeles (-128) and New York (-132).
