Thanks again for publishing one of my photos, @UrbanTurf_DC. It’s of the recent H Street NE Festival, in Washington, DC. The festival and the DC experience over last 8 years is reflected in the data – a 14% jump in the population is very noticeable. So are the other demographic changes.
Worth noting from this excellent analysis by the @DCPolicyCenter that Washington, DC is the only major metropolitan area that’s experiencing net migration into the city. The phenomenon of people leaving the suburbs is now history. (see: Thanks for publishing my photo and wow, Migration to D.C. remains stable, but plummets for rest of region )
In light of Census data being released last week, UrbanTurf is taking a look at how the demographics of the District have changed between 2009 and now.Source: The Difference That Seven Years Makes in the Demographics of DC
