Millennials Population Growth per City

Kelly: 'A great place to get going': More millennials are calling Omaha home

Michael Kelly - World-Herald columnist wrote:Among the 50 largest U.S. metros, the largest population growth among millennials in the past decade was in Charlotte, Houston, Austin, Seattle, Virginia Beach — and Omaha.

In May, the Seattle-based real estate database Zillow ranked Omaha No. 1 in a new category — lowest percentage of young adults 24 to 34 living with their parents. Omaha’s 11 percent was well below the U.S. average of 21 percent.

This may be the beginning of the end for one of our chronic problems. That 20 something's finish their degrees and leave only to get stuck on the coast where they can't have the life they could have had here once they hit their 30's.

I find this to be excellent news..

In my generation (I was born in the early 60's) most people my age (24-34) in the mid 80's to mid 90's couldn't wait to "get out" of Omaha..

That perception has completely changed in the past 15 years or so. The reality of great job opportunity and lower cost of living..combined with the fact that you have pretty much everything you want here (the grass is not greener anymore).. Makes Omaha a great destination point for the millennial crowd locally and throughout the US...

Leave it to the hipster millennials to turn a dive-bar trendy, a derelict neighborhood upscale and flyover country coastal.

I enjoyed the part about Brat Pitt being the "farmer from Omaha...."

Yep, just the other day I watched a video about the crops on the farm at 72nd & Dodge. Oh wait. That's the Crossroads parking lot...
