A new study from the University of Akron shows that the region’s population has grown so quickly that “the Big Apple is no longer a bastion of innovation.”
The Akron Health Sciences Center (AHSC) analyzed data from the Census Bureau’s American Community Survey from 2000 to 2012 and found that residents of the Akron, Ohio, metro area grew by 6.9% from 2000-2012.
AHSC’s Dr. Andrew Lippa told CNN that the city’s population grew at a rate of nearly 3% a year for the same period.
The city’s median household income increased by 5.2% between 2000 and 2012, the most recent year for which data was available, Lippahas data showed.
“The city grew by more than 3% per year for eight years, the longest growth period for any major metropolitan area,” he said.
“We’re now at the point where we’re not really getting the same amount of innovation and innovation in Akron as we were eight years ago.”
The research has been published in the journal Population, Ethnicity, and Health.
“Somersets” population grew by 5% per capita between 2000-12, but is projected to grow by 6% by 2021, according to Lippas findings.
“There is a lot of concern about the pace of change in the region,” Lippayas said.
The population growth is not unique to Akron, but Lippays study also found that the state’s median family income is expected to rise to $50,000 by 2021.
Akron’s median income, however, is less than half the median household wealth in the state, Littas said, meaning the state will have a lot more to work with if the state wants to be competitive in the race to catch up to other areas.
“If we are going to get to the point that we’re getting to now, and I think we are, we have to think very carefully about how we are building upon what we already have,” Littayas told CNN.
Lippany said the city should look at how other areas have already done to help keep Akron from becoming the next Big Apple.
“This region has done a great job of supporting the state in all areas of health care, but we need to do a much better job of connecting and connecting with the rest of the state,” he told CNN, adding that the health system should be able to “provide better outcomes and outcomes that are more equitable and more efficient for residents.”
Akron’s population growth was more than twice that of the entire state.
The region’s growth is likely due to more people coming from out of state and the fact that people are getting older, Lihpa told CNN on Monday.
Akron is also home to some of the most expensive medical care in the country.
It has the highest average price of medical care per capita of any major metro area in the U.S. according to the American Health Care Foundation, which ranked the city the seventh-most expensive.
“It is very difficult to find people who can afford to live in Akron.
There are just so many people who are struggling to find affordable housing and pay the rent,” Lihpas said.
But Lipps data shows that Akron residents are not the only ones who are having trouble.
“You’re going to have more young people moving into Akron and people who have graduated college are moving to Akron.
I think that’s going to be a big problem for Akron,” Liampas said, referring to the state capital’s rising population.
“I think there are going be a lot fewer opportunities for the middle-aged and older people to go to work in Akron.”
Akron, like many cities in the Ohio Valley, is home to more than 50,000 people, according the U, and that number has grown faster than the metro area’s population in recent years.
The new AHSM data also found Akron is on pace to exceed its growth rate for the next decade.
“Our numbers show we are on track for growth over the next 10 years,” Likpas said on Monday, citing data from 2016.
“As we move into the 2020s and into the 2030s, we are expecting to be in the middle of a long-term growth trend.
This is very, very encouraging news.”
Akron has also seen some of its biggest job losses in the last decade, with its workforce shrinking by more 10% between 2012 and 2016.
Lihapas told the New York Times that he believes the region will remain a “very important part of the United States.”
“We have the infrastructure and the talent and the people and the business in place to continue to grow and continue to deliver great care,” he added.
Liampa, however the AHSc report did find that Akron has seen some progress in terms of
