If you live in the District, you're familiar with the perks: being walking distance from work; excellent coffee shops; all the yoga, happy hours, farmers markets and rustic Italian food you could ever want.

Not all of this was here five years ago. Development is being driven in part by a recent population boom in the District, growth that is bringing more 20- and 30-somethings to the city than to most other places in the nation. In the past two years alone, the population of 25-to-34-year-olds living within D.C. boundaries has grown 12 percent. So, why are so many fresh-faced "millennials" choosing Washington? You tell us.

Take our survey: Hey Millennials, what do you think of life in D.C.?

The Washington Post is surveying young D.C. denizens about who you are, what brought you here and what you consider the positives and negatives of city life. We'll use the data (and, possibly, interviews with you) to create your OkCupid profile fuel our future coverage of 20-somethings in the city.
