Ohio may be stemming 'brain drain'

Census numbers show young people starting to stay in state

DAYTON, Ohio — A newspaper analysis shows that Ohio may be starting to turn around its “brain drain.”

The Dayton Daily News reports that an analysis of census data shows that Ohio may finally have seen the end of a decades-long trend of losing young adults to other states.

Beginning in 2010, the numbers show, Ohio actually showed an increase in the population of people ages 20 to 34.

The analysis found that the state lost more than 420,000 young adults between 1990 and 2010 — a drop of more than 16 percent. But from July 1, 2010, to last July, the state gained 42,562 young people in that age range. That’s a 2-percent increase.

Experts attribute it to more good job opportunities available in the state.
