Northern Virginia residents have been moving to Richmond in droves since the pandemic and that trend shows no signs of slowing down. What's happening: The rate of Northern Virginians coming into the Richmond area was up nearly 40% between 2020 and 2021 compared with the average between 2012-2019, Hamilton Lombard, demographer with UVA's Weldon Cooper Center, tells Axios. The Demographics Research Group is still finalizing the 2022 numbers from census data, but it shows a continuation of the same trend, he added.
