More millennials moving to Denver, says report


Only two other U.S. cities are attracting more millennials moving in than Denver, according to a new report.

According to the 2016 Mayflower Mover Insights Study, only Dallas and Chicago attracted more millennials moving in than Denver.

Without providing specific numbers, the report indicated that Denver outdrew cities like Seattle (No. 4), Atlanta (No. 5) and Los Angeles (No. 6) in attracting millennials to the city.

“This list of cities is consistent with the long-standing patterns of the U.S. population shift from the Northeast and Midwest to the South and the West. Emerging adults are leading the way because they are, overall, the most likely to be moving,” said Jeffrey Arnett, research professor in the department of psychology at Clark University, in a statement.
