KANSAS CITY, Mo. – If you’re a millennial in Overland Park, chances are you’re going to stay.

A new report by Smart Asset, a technology and financial information company, shows that while more millennials are moving to places like Seattle, Minneapolis, San Joe and Denver, those places also have high numbers of millennials that move out, somewhat lowering their overall net migration.

The report used 2016 data from the U.S. Census Bureau.

In Overland Park, 8,015 people between the ages of 20 and 34 moved in, but only 3,916 people moved out, a positive net migration of 4,099 people, which ranked 14th out of 25 cities.

The top performing city, Seattle, had a positive net migration of 7,302.
