Those two metros were Columbus, OH (#19) and Minneapolis (#20).

Counterintuitively, the metro area that suffered the worst loss of millennial aged residents was also in the west: Tucson, Az. Virginia Beach and Rochester, NY, were the only other two metros to show negative growth in millennial aged residents.

Growth rates in the U.S.'s three largest metropolises were mostly mediocre. New York performed the best of the three, coming in at the #30 on the list, with a 5.5% growth rate. Los Angeles's* (tied at #33) millennial population grew by 3.2% and Chicago's (#38) by 2%.

*The Inland Empire (#35) grew at a similar 3.1%.

Wow, the writer's idea of regions in the US is horribly warped. Grouping Denver with Seattle? Portland and Austin? Surrrrrrrrrrrre, those are "western" cities.
