Native Washingtonians

Let me preface this post by admitting to the conclusion you will likely draw after reading the introductory paragraph: I am jealous of Native Washingtonians. My consolation is that I am from the equally great SF Bay Area, and if I ever move back I will wield that status like a tyrant.

  4. Very interesting, but it also highlights one of the problems that will always arise when investigating this question: Using place of birth will necesarily miss all the people who are native Wasingtonians otherwise, but happened to have been born in one of the suburban hospitals. It would be interesting to look at all those DC residents who were born in the surrounding counties and have long tenure in DC residences.
