The COVID-19 pandemic and other factors have at least temporarily slowed the influx of people to some Columbus neighborhoods, according to the findings of a recent Federal Reserve Bank of Cleveland report.

Stephan Whitaker, policy economist with the Federal Reserve, conducted the study. He said he looked at specific, dense urban neighborhoods and gauged the flow of residents in and out in 2020 compared to previous years.

In Columbus, he found a decline in people moving to those neighborhoods accounted for about two-thirds of the net change, which was: 15 fewer people per 100,000 per month moving into these neighborhoods, and eight more moving out per 100,000 per month.
