The Mountain Migration Report:

Are COVID Impacts on Housing & Services Here to Stay? is a study of the recent influx of people residing in mountain communities, a trend that coincides with a boom in remote work and the COVID pandemic.   The survey seeks to quantify what appeared to be unusually full occupancy for many communities throughout the year, and asks, was it indeed a trend, and if so, who were the migrants?  It studies the demographics and long-term intent of migrants and how their influx is shaping these places.  The report concludes that the in-migration is occurring, and that there are significant long-term implications for communities which ought to be addressed.
