Best of Blogs for Week of August 29th

Every Friday afternoon I share some of the more interesting or notable posts that I have seen in the personal finance blogs and other sources for the past week

MyMoneyBlog discusses the Effect of Student Loan Debt on Homeownership Rate

DQYDJ answers the question What is the Savings Rate in Other Countries?\

DQYDJ also presented Where Do Residents of the States Come From? A Demographic Study of 2012 Census Data   which lets you look up the number of people who migrated to states from various other states and nations based on age ranges. Which is kinda interesting.    In that same area, the NYT published this Where We Came From and Where We Went, State by State which has really neat charts showing state to state migration flows going back to 1900.    You can use these to see for example that the outflow of people from California may be exaggerated.   For example in 2000 a full 76% of the people born in CA still lived there and by 2012 it was down to just 75%.  Not a huge difference, and by comparison in Alaska the numbers were 53% in 2000 and 50% in 2012.  OK I'm writing too much...
