Millennials moving to Washington,Florida, Georgia, North Carolina, study says

June 15, 2018




A report from financial technology company SmartAsset lists Florida, Georgia, North Carolina and Washington among the top 10 states where millennials are moving.


To find which cities had the highest net gain of millennials, SmartAsset ranked cities and states by the highest difference between the number of people ages 20 to 34 moving in and out.
On Tuesday, the company released its top 10 list of states and top 25 list of cities.

Washington was the No. 1 state on the list, as it gained nearly 40,000 more millennials than it lost. The No. 1 city is also in Washington -- Seattle -- which gained a net number of 7,300 millennials.

Georgia made the top 10 at No. 5 with a net migration of more than 17,000 millennials. No Georgia cities made the top 25 list based on net migration numbers.


North Carolina was the No. 7 state on the list with a net gain of nearly 10,000 millennials. Two North Carolina cities made the top 25 list. Charlotte came in at No. 11 with a net gain of nearly 5,000 millennials, and Durham came in at No. 21 with a net gain of a little over 3,5000 millennials.
Florida came in at No. 9 with a net gain of just over 7,100 millennials. Jacksonville was the only Florida city on the list with a net gain of a little more than 6,300 millennials.

Ohio did not make the SmartAsset's list of top 10 states, but did have two cities on the top 25 -- Cincinnati at No. 13 with a net gain of 4,420 millennials, and Columbus at No. 24 with a net gain of 3,335 millennials.

According to the report, SmartAsset gathered its findings from 2016 Census Bureau migration data for 217 cities, all 50 states and Washington, D.C.

Top 10 states and net migration:
1. Washington - 39,590
2. Texas - 33,650

7. North Carolina - 9,647
8. Nevada -8,820
9. Florida - 7,195
10. Arizona - 7,077

Top 10 cities and net migration:

2. Columbia, South Carolina - 6,937
3. Sacramento, California - 6,680
4. Minneapolis - 6,529

Oh sure. Sasquatches are gonna be a part of Seattle and Washington state culture for a long, long, time. They love living in the coastal regions, plenty of cedar, bark, trees, animal snacks and, of course, goofy humans that they love to fool with. They hide from humans with the best of 'em.

Are those stats, year/month/day/decade?

Bend Oregon is getting an average of 9 people a day moving here, or 3285 per year, and people are whining about that with good reason, as the infrastructure was never designed for growth.

Job opportunities have never been great and are pretty much stagnant in the greater Bend area. I always wonder how much research and planning most people do before moving to Greener Pastures? (or High Desert, in this case)


Too bad the concept of zero population growth has never caught on, and big families are still in vogue, which is really the root cause problem that is hitting everywhere.

I love this city growing. Every year it gets better.

(Of course, I walk to work, which avoids half of the stuff people complain about.)

Traffic and costs aside, I too think it’s improved as more people move in and add to the mix.


Oh I work remotely as well, although I fly out of Seatac often and have to say it looks more like LAX or JFK these days

Homeowners get an extra 100k every year in the bank. Why would they not want more people to move here. And that 100k is on the very low side.
