Map of the Month – September 2019
Metro Phoenix Millennial Growth Analysis
With all the talk of millennials driving infill, apartment construction, and job growth, this month we looked at the 20 to 34-year-old census bureau cohort growth by census tract. As seen below on the top map, from 2010 to 2017 the largest percentage of millennials growth has been at the fringe vs “infill”. I.e. Loops 303 and 202. However, percent change could be misleading based on the size of the base and small numbers.
To dig deeper, we plotted the 10 census tracks with the highest number of millennials – regardless of percentage change. (Based on 2017 American Community Survey) However, because census tracts are not all the same size, this could be misleading.
Together, these maps help decipher what’s trending locally with the largest US population cohort in history.
