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

We partnered with the Boston Foundation on a research report called City of Millennials: Improving the Future Prospects of our Region and Its Young Adults. The report shows that Greater Boston’s millennial population is more racially and ethnically diverse and more educated than any wave of young adults before, but that housing and economic mobility are persistent challenges impacting how this population experiences life in our region. The report provides an overview and analysis of trends among Greater Boston’s young adult population and examines key findings from a new survey of local millennials conducted by Boston Indicators and City Awake, a program of the Greater Boston Chamber. The goal of the report was to gain a baseline understanding of millennials’ perceptions and challenges in order to guide future work addressing these concerns.
