GEOGRAPHY IN THE NEWS:
A recent report released by the U.S. Census Bureau shows Americans are moving at the lowest rate since the government started collecting data in 1947. Fewer than 10% of Americans moved last year, about half what it was in the 1950s, for example. Housing prices, low wages, student loans, and an aging population are all contributing, but economists and demographers are still trying to puzzle out exactly why Americans -- young, old, wealthy, poor, well educated, and not-so-well educated -- have stopped moving and if this is a good thing or a bad thing. www.nytimes.com/2019/11/20/us/american-workers-moving-states-.html
