DOMESTIC MIGRATION

------------------

Hundreds of thousands of people each year move to the United States, and millions of Americans relocate within the country.  Their movements have a profound impact on public service needs, business patterns, and the political landscape, both for their destinations and for the places left behind.

 

The Population Resource Center, Northeast-Midwest Institute, and California Institute on Friday, November 21, will host a briefing on domestic migration, focusing on how new movers and immigrants are changing the demographic landscape, as well as how those changes impact public policy.  Presenters will be from the University of Michigan's Population Studies Center and the New Jersey Public Policy Research Institute.

 

The November 21 briefing will run from 9:30 am until 11:00 am in 121 Cannon House Office Building.
