So we’ve all heard how Massachusetts and other Northeast states have been losing population. Right?
That might have been true a few decades ago. But not recently.
Over the past three years alone, Massachusetts has grown by 129,561 people, or by 2 percent, to about 6.6 million people.
Most of that growth has occurred in the Greater Boston area (Boston, Somerville, Newton and Cambridge are at the top of the usual-suspects list, not surprisingly), while the Cape and western Massachusetts are not doing so swell, population-wise.
So think about it: Where are the majority of those 129,561 new people living? Did new housing just magically appear? Do you think this growth — which is otherwise highly encouraging — is contributing to driving up housing prices?
Here’s some more interesting Bay State data from the US Census.
