Study: Inland Empire residents on the move
INLAND EMPIRE – (INT) - Migration has been a defining characteristic of Riverside-San Bernardino counties for years. It’s contributing to a phenomenon that’s sweeping the nation. Americans move more often than most other people in the world.
COMMERCIALCafé’s latest study found:
• The Inland Empire (IE) ranked 2nd, gaining a net average of 35,022 residents per year from other U.S. metro areas.
• The metro IE gained over 84,000 residents per year from Los Angeles alone.
• The Inland Empire is the only California metro area to make the top 10.
• The IE is an important transportation hub, and the number of people working in production, transportation and material moving grew by an average of 4.1% yearly.
The study found that the Sun Belt is an attractive area for inter-metro migration. Tech hubs are also a step ahead when it comes to drawing prospective residents. Take a look at the chart below to see which metros drew the most residents per year through metro-to-metro migration.
