City of Millennials: Improving the Future Prospects of Our Region and Its Young Adults

Posted on June 26th, 2017 by blippmeier in Kirstein Business Library

A new report issued by Boston Indicators in partnership with City Awake and the Greater Boston Chamber of Commerce says that  Boston boasts more millennials than any other large American city. It also shouldn’t  be surprising to learn that the top challenge millennials identify when it comes to building successful lives in Greater Boston is limited access to affordable housing. What might be surprising to you is how diverse the millennial population is in Greater Boston. Forty-three percent of those who make up this group are non-white or Hispanic white—and that trend will continue, as the Hispanic and Asian young adult populations continue to grow at a rapid rate.
