Boomers are staying put, close to where the jobs – or at least the potential for them – are instead of moving to the Sunbelt, according to U.S. Census figures released Tuesday.

The census shows that the growth of traditional retirement destinations slipped from 3.1 percent between 2000 and 2007 to 1.7 percent between 2007 and 2009, even though significant numbers of baby boomers passed age 60 during those years.

Las Vegas, Orlando, Phoenix, Atlanta, and Raleigh, N.C., all lost population in 2009, while New York, Los Angeles, Boston, and Chicago gained population. Cleveland and Philadelphia decreased in population.
