New York City Hourly Influx

Goals

To find out how many people move to New York City every hour (from both overseas and interstate). This research would be used as a headline statistic for public relations purposes.

Early Findings

  • According to StreetEasy, over 264,000 people moved to New York City in 2017. These people came in from all over, both abroad and within the United States.
  • Six percent of movers to New York City come from Florida and Texas. Overall, "more people are leaving New York City for California than moving in." However, those who move tend to be within the 18-34 age range. Only 3,000 people who are over 35 years moved from California to New York City in 2017.
  • New York City’s Department of City Planning reported that the city’s strong population expansion, which was "fueled by new young residents, in the past decade appears to have begun its inevitable slowdown."
  • In the city's five boroughs, the number of residents grew by 2.7% between 2010 and 2018.
  • After analyzing the 2018 Census data, Bloomberg reports that New York City became the largest net loser of residents in the United States. Over 277 people move out of New York City every day.
