A newspaper analysis shows that Ohio may be starting to turn around its "brain drain."
The Dayton Daily News reports that an analysis of census data shows that Ohio may finally have seen the end of a decades-long trend of losing young adults to other states.
Beginning in 2010, the numbers show, Ohio actually showed an increase in the population of people ages 20 to 34.
More people moved out of Ohio last year than moved into the state.
That's according to an analysis by the Dayton Daily News, which also reports that the state is losing fewer residents than it has in many years because the economy is improving.
According to U.S. Census data, Ohio lost over 14 thousand more people than it gained in 2011 - the lowest net loss since 2005.
