Millennials, those born between the years of 1981 and 1996, will soon represent the largest generation in America’s workforce.
A new study by Haven Life studied where millennials were moving and which cities saw the generation’s population change from 2012 to 2017. The study found millennials were drawn to metropolitan areas that were expensive with high home prices and cost of living but also high wages.
Haven Life analyzed data from the Census Bureau data to determine its findings. The life insurance agency also analyzed data from Zillow to determine its median home prices and information from the Bureau of Economic Analysis’s Regional Price Parity dataset for the cost of living figures.
