News Herald: NEO Works to Attract Millennials

Mapping Human Capital: Where Northeast Ohio’s Young and Middle-Age Adults Are Locating

A report released by the Center on Urban Poverty and Community Development was used by the News Herald in "Northeast Ohio communities work to attract Millennials" on July 14, 2013 to show migration trends in young adults. With these trends in mind, many communities in Northeast Ohio are looking for ways to become more appealing for young adults to move in and stay.

The Poverty Center released the Briefly Stated report "Mapping Human Capital: Where Northeast Ohio's Young and Middle-Age Adults Are Locating" earlier this year which described how the overall population of Cuyahoga and other counties are shrinking but certain neighborhoods and inner-ring suburban communities in the core of the region are witnessing a large growth in young adults moving in.

The News Herald cited that report to show how these trends are affecting the region. Communities and counties in Northeast Ohio that are loosing Millennials (people born in the 1980s and 1990s) have noticed this trend and are looking for ways to attract in-migration.

The Center on Urban Poverty and Community Development is a research center at the Jack, Joseph and Morton Mandel School of Applied Social Sciences, a graduate school of social work at Case Western Reserve University.
