What confuses me is why Houston and Las Vegas are in the list of cities millennials are moving away from while Los Angeles and Seattle are in the list of cities millennials are moving *to*.

Phoenix being in the *moving to* list doesn't surprise me one bit, but I wonder why Las Vegas and Houston aren't part of that list as well.

Millennials are figuring out that you don't have to live in one of the handful of big cities to live a fulfilled urban lifestyle when there are dozens of medium sized cities with revitalized/revitalizing urban cores at a fraction of the cost.

Looks like an interesting article. Unfortunately I don't have a subscription. Can anyone tell me where Denver and Minneapolis are? Coming or going?

From the article(second section): "Cities with more than a half million people collectively lost almost 27,000 residents age 25 to 39 in 2018, according to a Wall Street Journal analysis of the figures. It was the fourth consecutive year that big cities saw this population of young adults shrink. New York, Chicago, Houston, San Francisco, Las Vegas, Washington and Portland, Ore., were among those that lost large numbers of residents in this age group."


(Last section): "Among the big cities that gained large numbers of young adults were Los Angeles, Phoenix, San Antonio, San Diego, Austin, Seattle, Denver and Columbus."

Today with technology and the Interweb, a lot of people are no longer tied to an office and can live/work anywhere they want.

Trends come and go, and cities are included among those trends.
