Nonmetro Migration Drops in the West and among College Graduates.
Cromartie, John B.
Rural Conditions and Trends, v11 n2 p32-38 Dec 2000
In the late 1990s, the nonmetro population continued to increase from net migration but at a lower rate than previously. Compared to the early 1990s, the nonmetro West experienced a substantial drop in net migration during 1996-99. Metro-to-nonmetro migration also dropped substantially among college graduates and was higher for low-wage workers than other income groups. (Author/TD)
