State-to-State Geographic Mobility: Migration Flows in 2013
In 2013, there were an estimated 548,034 people who moved from a residence 1 year earlier, in a different state, to Texas. Texas experienced the largest number of movers (inflows) from other states among all states. 66,318 of these movers were from California. See the interactive table in this section to examine similar characteristics for any state. These data are based on the 2013 American Community Survey. See related data.
Migration data described in this section are part of the Situation & Outlook (S&O) database and information system. Access/analyze these data in context of related geographic, demographic, economic and business data.
Visual Analysis of Mobility Patterns
The following view shows patterns of New York state outmigration by destination state. See inset legend. Note the legend shows only those states that account for 2% or more of New York out migration. Florida is the largest New York 2013 out migration destination state with 55,419 movers from New York to Florida. Intervals/colors could be changed to any configuration. The label shows total New York state out migration for that state. Expanded view shows detail more clearly. See this related view that shows a zoom-in to east coast area. Use the GIS project (details below) to create similar views for any state; visual analysis of outmigration for any state showing outmigration by destination state. Label areas as desired. Add other layers. Add your own data.
New York State OutMigration by Destination State
View created with CV XE GIS. Click graphic for larger view with more detail.
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 2013 ACS 1 year estimates. The data reflect movers during calendar year 2013. These data are estimates; smaller estimates are subject to a relatively high margin of error.

Using the Table
The rows in each table represent the state of current residence.
Pop 1yr+ 1 Year Ago -- the population age 1 year and over.
Non Movers -- population that did not change residence in the past year.
Movers within state -- population that moved during past year within same state
Movers from different state -- total movers into this state from a different state in past year.
State columns (columns 6 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.
