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.
