A recent Pew Research Center report has looked at the migration patterns of the Millennial generation, and the results might surprise you.

Despite being mostly unmarried, childless, and living without a mortgage, many in that generation are opting to stay put in one place.

According to the report, 20% of those between the ages of 25 to 35 changed addresses in 2015, compared with 26% of those in the Generation X group when they were asked the same question in 2000.

What factors are driving this trend? Larry speaks with Richard Fry, senior research at Pew who conducted the analysis.

Guests: 

Richard Fry, senior researcher at Pew Research Center behind the new study

Jason Dorsey, founder of the Center for Generational Kinetics, a research firm specializing in Millennials and Gen Z marketing
