Online meeting data from GoToMeeting found a decrease in the average monthly meetings in several major cities. CNBC says these significant drops could point toward workers exiting the cities, especially since the number of online meetings on the site spiked by nearly 10 times during the pandemic. GoToMeeting averages 28 million monthly users and compared November 2019 monthly meeting data to November 2020, using IP addresses to find which users were from the specific cities. The city with the largest decrease in monthly users was Chicago with a 33% decline.

The cities that saw the biggest percentage drop include:

  • Chicago: down by 33%
  • Boston: down by 28%
  • New York City: down by 25%
  • San Francisco: down by 22%

LogMeIn also analyzed user IP addresses to look at meeting activity by state today compared with pre-pandemic activity a year ago.

In California, about half of workers logging into video meetings continue to do so from the state. Among the rest who’ve left, workers are most likely to have moved to nearby Utah, as well as New Jersey and Texas.
