Phoenix among the most changed metros in the nation

  • ​In a recent report detailing how cities have changed from 2006 to 2016, Phoenix ranks 14th among the 50 largest metros in the U.S. Each city in the study was scored using nine elements, and Phoenix scored 80.0 out of 100. Austin, TX, and Dallas–Ft. Worth took the top two spots with change scores of 90.4 and 89.7, respectively.
  • Of the nine elements used to score the metros, Phoenix saw the biggest change in recent moves and resident age, ranking second in both. Roughly 61 percent of Phoenix’s residents moved into their residence in 2010 or later, and the average age of residents has increased by 2.8 years.
  • Office employment has benefited from these changes in recent years. Significant population growth of 11.2 percent from 2010 to August of 2017 has expanded the depth of talent in Phoenix, with over 218,600 people added to the labor pool during that period. ​
