The Mile High City ranks 29th out of 50 major metros for the number of millennials who moved here in the past decade, an increase of just 1.3 percent,
To compile its report, Apartment List analyzed U.S. Census Bureau data from 2005 to 2015. It found that millennials flocked to Charlotte, N.C. above all other cities during that time period.
