"Think of the recession as freezing people in place -- now that is thawing," said Kenneth Johnson, senior demographer and public policy professor at the University of New Hampshire. "States with histories of slow growth due to large domestic migration losses -- which did better during the recession -- are starting to see less growth again."


"We seem to be in the midst of broad-based job creation," said Thomas Cunningham, a former Atlanta Fed economist who now is chief economist for the Metro Atlanta Chamber of Commerce. Technology jobs in midtown are booming, he said. Labor force growth is "consistent with migration getting back to prerecession levels."

Looks peakey to us!
