Most NEO Ohio Newcomers Come From…

by | Sep 9, 2015 | Recruitment & Relocation

When recruiting an out of town candidate, it might be helpful to know which parts of the world supply the most newcomers to our region, right? Just one more selling tool to lure that tough recruit from New York City who doesn’t think they will find like minded people here, when you can show them that they will!
And so when the next candidate from Manhattan seems like a long shot, you will feel confident knowing that NY sends more newcomers to Cleveland and Akron every year than any other state in the US!
Here are some of the other areas that rank high on the list of migration patterns into NE Ohio from 2009-2013 according to the US Census Bureau info that was released last week:

  • Asia (A lot of this number can be attributed to the draw of Case Western Reserve University and NE Ohio’s many prestigious schools.)
  • Columbus, OH
  • New York, NY
  • Cincinnati, OHLuggage. Travel concept, world map. High resolution.
  • Chicago, IL
  • Europe
  • Canton, OH
  • Detroit, MI
  • Pittsburgh, PA
  • Atlanta, GA
  • Africa
  • Tampa, FL
  • Las Vegas, NV
  • Central America
  • San Juan, Puerto Rico
  • Washington, D.C.
  • Dayton, OH
