Metro America in the New Century: Metropolitan and Central City Demographic Shifts since 2000

Publication Abstract

Frey, William H. 2005. "Metro America in the New Century: Metropolitan and Central City Demographic Shifts since 2000." Brookings Institution, Living Cities Census Series, September.

This report from the Brookings Institution is part of the Living Cities Census Series, which uses Census 2000 data to analyze social, economic, and demographic trends in urban and suburban America over the past two decades, and projects changes for the upcoming decade. Here William Frey reports on his analysis of population and migration change from 1960 to 2004 for OMB's newly defined metropolitan areas. Among other findings, he reports that the fast-growing metro areas of the 1990s have become some of the slowest growing in recent years; that although immigration continues to drive growth in many large metro areas, the fastest-growing metro areas rely more heavily on domestic migration and natural increases; and that the fastest-growing metro areas are located in the South and West regions.
