Since the year 2000, the population of the Washington region has increased by over 1 million people.  During this period, however, more people have moved away from our region to elsewhere in the US than have moved here from other parts of the country.  What’s driving this different, and what does it say about the region’s economic competitiveness and cost of living? Who are the people moving into are region, and how do they differ from those who are moving out?  What do these migration trends imply about the future of our region, and what do we need to do to remain attractive to potential in-migrants?

Join us on April 23 as Jeannette Chapman, Deputy Director and Senior Research Associate for The Stephen S. Fuller Institute at George Mason, discuss the recent trends in migration (domestic and foreign) in the Washington region, the factors that drive in-migration and out-migration, and the future implications for our region. She’ll also respond to your questions.
