Brain Gain: College Graduates Are Flocking To Miami

Miami ranks as one of the top destinations for educated workers, according to an analysis of recent census data by noted urbanist Richard Florida (himself a part-time Miami resident).

The findings reveal that thousands of college graduates moved from elsewhere in the U.S. to the Miami area in 2011 and 2012 (the most recent data available). Miami ranked as one of the top 5 metropolitan areas attracting college graduates during that time period.

While skilled workers were moving in, Miami did lose less educated workers due to the high cost of living.
