Changing Faces of Cleveland and Cuyahoga

In 2012 and 2013, the Center on Urban Poverty and Community Development released two Briefly Stated reports on the changing demographics of Cleveland and Northeast Ohio: Not Dead Yet: The Infill of Cleveland’s Urban Core and Mapping Human Capital: Where Northeast Ohio’s Young and Middle-Age Adults Are Locating. This research – which showed, despite an overall loss of population in the region, the urban core has seen growth especially within certain demographics – has been continued by the Center for Population Dynamics at Cleveland State University whose new report was featured in The Plain Dealer article “Mapping brain gain and loss: New study charts changing faces of Cleveland, Cuyahoga County” on June 20, 2015.

The report, “Mapping Adult Migration in Cleveland, Ohio,” was sponsored by Cleveland Neighborhood Progress, a partner of the Poverty Center, and authored by Richey Piiparinen, Jim Russell, and Eamon Johnson. Piiparinen is a former Poverty Center researcher who authored the above Briefly Stated reports and Johnson is a current doctoral student assistant and programmer at the Center. The new report also references Mapping Human Capital.

The Center for Population Dynamics report was also featured by The Atlantic‘s CityLab.
