MetroTrends week in review

  Last week’s MetroTrends blogs dig deep – exploring trends and variations behind the national averages:

  • Graham MacDonald’s latest interactive map tracks flows of people moving between metro areas, both before and since the Great Recession.
  • Greg Mills highlights a new measure of “liquid asset poverty” and shows where it coincides with prolonged unemployment.
