The nation’s capital is king for young college graduates seeking work-life balance in a big city.
Washington, D.C., was ranked the No. 1 major metropolitan area in the American Institute for Economic Research’s inaugural Employment Destinations Index.
“After making the economic decision to move, the young and educated are looking for places where they can have a meaningful work/life balance,” said Rosalind Greenstein, director of research and education at AIER in a press release.
“The thinking is that people move for jobs, so economics is supposed to drive these kinds of moves,” says Rosalind Greenstein, the director of research and education at the American Institute for Economic Research. “But we also know it’s not just economics.”
The American Institute for Economic Research, a nonprofit economic research organization based in Great Barrington, Mass., studied migration patterns of adults ranging in age from 22 to 35 with college degrees to see where they choose to life.
