Austin, Texas is definitley a cool, happening place - and the younger generation has surely taken notice to this.  

There is a group of the population, otherwise known as our "Millennial" bunch that consist of those born between the years of 1980 - 2000.  Millennials are creating a new trend in housing, jobs, the economy - politics, you name it.  

According to Meyers Research, the Millennial population is quiet partial to the Austin area, in fact - Austin ranks number four on the Meyers Millennial Desirability Index (MDI).

The MDI is based on a few items: job growth and total employment (Bureau of Labor Statistics), cost of living (Numbeo), wage potential (U.S. Census Bureau), quality of life (U.S. News and World Report), fun index (WalletHub), and affordable housing availability (Zonda by Meyers Research).

With affordability being one of the most attractive factors to millennials, equally as important is the job market and potential job opportunities.
