Large City Population Statistics

Goals

Determine the population statistics and the number of people coming to work for the rest of the specified cities. The information will be used for market expansion plans across North America.

Proposed next steps:

You need to be the project owner to select a next step.
Our initial research provided some of the available population statistics of the remaining cities. We also presented some helpful statistics on the number of people coming to work in some of these cities as direct work migration numbers to these cities are highly limited. Given this, we propose continuing the research to provide 2-3 helpful statistics on any available data points for each city with regard to the number of people coming there to work.
We will also provide 2-3 helpful insights per city on why people are or are not moving there. SCOPE: Canadian cities: Toronto, Vancouver, Ottawa, Kitchener-Waterloo, and Calgary -US cities: Seattle, Chicago, Charlotte (NC), Boston, Austin, San Antonio, Nashville, Denver, and San Fransisco,
For a more affordable option, we recommend continuing with the research to identify 5-7 insights on why people would like or would not like to move to these cities in general.
