State-to-State Geographic Mobility: Migration Flows in 2009

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.
