Study: Migration to Heartland Benefits Ohio

Ohio is benefitting from the population migration from the coasts to central states, according to a new report by Arkansas-based Heartland Forward. The study notes that from 2010 to 2019, a dozen metro areas in Ohio grew their educated workforce and creative class.

Axios reports the steady migration “means that smaller and medium-size heartland metros and rural areas can now attract more diverse talent.” 2/16/2022
