The Creative Class / Singles Ratio in the US

Recently, Richard Florida visited us at work. I was not able to make it to meet him in person, but he was here to talk about and promote his book, “Who’s in Your City”. The underlying philosophy is interesting.

His hook is this: “How the Creative Economy is Making the Place Where You Live the Most Important Decision of Your Life.” He argues that the location we choose to live has “powerful influence over the jobs and careers we have access to, the people meet and our “mating markets” and our ability to lead happy and fulfilled lives.”

I also found this graph interesting. Why are all the high women to men ratio on the east coast? One hypothesis I have is that, historically, more men migrated west (since colonies first settled in the east) and women’s power for migration (income, social status) was less, thus contributing to this contrast. I could be wrong, though.
