State-to-State Migration

for States of 8 Million or More



This graphic, using data from the American Community Survey, illustrates the total number of movers between states for the 12 most populous states, based on 2010 population. While there is considerable gross domestic migration (total number of movers) between states each year, the number of movers in and the number of movers out are similar, resulting in relatively small net gains or losses.
