People are flooding to Midland and Odessa as their economies are reaping the benefits from the oil boom. As Chicago loses residents, the Permian Basin is gaining them. Both Texas cities were among the fastest growing metros last year according to Census data recently released. More people are moving into the Permian Basin than are moving out. And of these two metros, Midland was the one that is able to boast the highest growth of all U.S. metros. Midland gained a population of 4.2 percent and Odessa saw a 3.2 percent population increase. Between 2010 and 2018 Midland’s population grew nearly 26 percent.

The Permian Basin

So, why should you consider relocating to Midland from Chicago? Midland and Odessa share the benefits of the Permian Basin. It’s a 75,000 square mile area that contains rich petroleum and natural gas deposits. Workers from all over the United States are relocating to Midland and Odessa as production of gas and oil boosts the economy and raised salaries. This is an ongoing trend, because Midland has ranked among the top fastest growing cities in the nation for years according to Chicago BusinessAs Chicago’s economy presents less and less opportunity, Midland offers financial improvements. Skipping out on the recent polar vortexes during the harsh Chicago winters in favor of the warmth of the Permian Basin is just an added bonus for people relocating to Midland from Chicago.
