Rutgers Study: A New Shift to Suburbanization?

A new Rutgers Regional Report, “The ‘Burbs’ Bounce Back: ‘Trendlet’ or ‘Dead Cat Bounce’?” finds that the predicted transformative demographic shifts of the early part of the decade (2010-2016)—an urban resurgence and a suburban malaise—may, in fact, be reversing.

The report, authored by James W. Hughes, University Professor and Dean Emeritus of Rutgers University’s Edward J. Bloustein School of Planning and Public Policy; Joseph J. Seneca, University Professor Emeritus; and Will Irving, research associate at the Bloustein School indicates that the most recent census estimates (2017) show suburban population growth surpassing that of the urban core.
