Reverse Migration

New census numbers being released today confirm what people in the South have known for years. A growing number of people are leaving the North and moving here.

Demographers call the movement reverse migration, a reference to the time between 1910 and 1950 when millions of blacks in the South up-rooted their families and moved to cities in the North. North Carolina ranks high on the migration list and many of these newcomers are moving to the triangle. Leoneda Inge reports:
