Geographical Mobility: 2012 to 2013 The U.S. Census Bureau has issued its annual set of 28 tables on how many Americans moved between 2012 and 2013 — the propensity to move declined slightly to 11.7 percent, vs. 12.0 percent between 2011 and 2012, returning to the levels of 2010 to 2011. Because Americans are more prone to move than the residents of many other countries, understanding mobility patterns is extremely important in economic development, labor market, education, and transportation planning.

Metropolitan Job Sprawl A pair of Brookings Institution studies of “job sprawl” — a counterpart to the better-known phenomenon of urban sprawl — found that the decentralization of jobs grew steadily in the largest 98 metro areas during the pre-recession period, but then stabilized between 2007 and 2010. Only slightly more than a fifth of employees in the biggest metro areas work within 3 miles of downtown, while more than two-fifths work more than 10 miles from the city center.
