Where the people who left Milwaukee for other jobs went once pandemic set in – Milwaukee Business Journal – The Business Journals

by Arifa Rana

The onset of the Covid-19 pandemic slightly boosted the flow of people moving out of the Milwaukee metro area because they took a new job somewhere else.
The Milwaukee metro that also includes Waukesha, Washington and Ozaukee counties saw about 18,482 people moving to new jobs outside of the region from the start of 2020 through March 2021. That’s about 2,138 more people than moved out of the region in the previous 15-month period starting in late 2018.
The numbers reflect only people moving as they changed jobs. It is part of a new data set the Census Bureau put together and released this month looking at patterns of people changing jobs.
Both during and before the pandemic, the bulk of people in the Milwaukee area who got new jobs found work within the four-county metro area, according to that data. Many also went to Racine County.
Officials in the Milwaukee area are constantly aiming to attract talent and population, as both are key data points for companies deciding where to investor or expand. The discussion has taken on more dimension since the start of the pandemic with remote work giving people more flexibility to decide where they want to live.
Here’s the most recent Census data, showing where people went when they left the Milwaukee metro area for jobs from the start of 2020 through March 2021. The numbers below represent metro areas that attracted at least 50 Milwaukee residents during that time:
