I suspect that if they are staying in the area, they're probably moving out to exurban areas -- close enough for a day trip into the city, but far enough away from the crowds and the traffic when commuting for w*rk isn't a concern.

Ziggy29 and REWahoo beat me to the punch. I plan to move to Missouri when I retire, and their answers in posts #15 and #16 above express exactly what I was thinking.

The median age for DFW and Raleigh are both around 32 (a few years younger than the national average). However both areas have had tremendous growth so that is probably the biggest contributing factor to study. It would be interesting to see a study on which cities are getting "older" and "younger".
