Since the 20th century, Broome County and more specifically the Binghamton area has been losing its population and becoming more and more of a transient population. This paper looks to analyze the relationship between the transient population, more specifically transient students and their families, and the causes of them moving, primarily focusing on the economic and housing situations throughout the county. The research gained through using data published by government agencies as well as scientific journals in the past as well as interviews with people familiar to the situation in schools may help show a "cause and effect" relationship between the variables previously discussed and how they affect transience of students. Additionally, this paper also looks to provide potential solutions to these assumed housing problems using data and previous policy ideas that were implemented in other rural areas.
