Story | Oct 20, 2014 | 8:01 AMOf the nation’s 51 metropolitan areas with a million or more residents, Baltimore is boasting robust numbers of young, college-educated people who choose to live in the urban core. This is according to a new report, called "Young and Restless," put out by a new think tank, City Observatory (CO), and covered today by the New York Times. Written by CO economist Joe Cortright and based on recent U.S. Census data, the report finds that the number of 25- to 34-year-old college graduates in Baltimore increased from 121,500 in 2000 to 160,500 in 2012, a 32-percent jump, making them nearly 6 percent of the overall population, and that the number of this group choosing to live in the urban core (within three miles of the main central business district) grew 92 percent, from 13,000 to 25,000. This is good because, as Cortright explains, "talented young workers are both economically important in their own right—playing especially important roles in meeting the labor needs of fast-growing knowledge-based firms—and also as a kind of indicator of the overall health and attractiveness of a metropolitan area."
