Interstate Population Migration

(PDF PDF icon)

Migration patterns over the past seven years show that Rust Belt states continue to experience out-migration. The largest net loss, however, occurred in California, where nearly 2 million more people left the state than entered. The other big losers were New York, Illinois, and New Jersey. The Southeast and Southwest were the biggest population gainers. The state with the largest in-migration was Florida, which gained nearly 800,000 more people than it lost.
