In 2009, state-by-state net movers, people who moved to a residence in a different state compared to state of residence one year earlier, ranged from -106,989 net movers from New York to 128,137 net movers into Texas. These data are based on the 2009 American Community Survey.
The American Community Survey (ACS) asks respondents age 1 year and over whether they lived in the same residence 1 year ago. For people who lived in a different residence, the location of their previous residence is collected. The state-to-state migration flows are created from tabulations of the current state (including the District of Columbia) of residence crossed by state of residence 1 year ago.
Use the interactive ranking table ranking table provided below to rank states based on the number of movers between states. These data are based on the 2009 ACS 1 year estimates and released in May 2011. The data reflect movers during calendar year 2009. Note that these data are estimates; smaller estimates are subject to a relatively high margin of error.
The rows in each table represent the state of current residence.
Columns 2-to-4 show a summary of movers across all states.
Inbound is the sum of all movers into that state from another state.
Outbound is the sum of all movers out of that state to another state.
NetMovers is inbound movers less outbound movers.
State columns (columns 5 to end) represent the state of residence 1 year ago. The cells where the current residence and residence 1 year ago are in the same state are the estimated number of people who moved within the state. To view the number of movers in California from 1 year ago (column) to the current state of residence (row), click the CA column header for an ascending ranked view, and click that column header again for a descending ranked view.
